The online procedure is documented on the ACC web at http://www.austincc.edu/support/admissions/online.php.
The Webmaster Certificate Program is a series of courses that are open to the public. Classes are held at ACC's Highland Business Center, 5930 Middle Fiskville Road, Austin, Texas 78752 and also online. There is no program-registration fee. However, you can send an email to email@example.com to sign up for a listserv and you will start receiveing emails about upcoming webmaster courses as well as updates about the program or projects.
During the webmaster program, you take courses in XHTML, PHP, Java, Perl, web graphics (Photoshop, Flash) , web page design, multimedia applications, and more. In each of these courses, you take tests or complete projects to demonstrate your mastery of the material. Toward the end of your studies, you do a "Capstone" project: you create a web site, with one of the webmaster program faculty members as your mentor.
Because "webmaster" refers to such a diverse set of skills, the ACC Webmaster program defines two specialization tracks. When you register for the Webmaster Program at ACC, choose one of these specializations. Currently, these include:
When you successfully complete the program and your website project, you receive a Webmaster Certificate that designates your specific focus. Remember that these are specializations. Whichever specialization you choose, you'll get an overview of all the primary webmaster skills. Also, you can do both!
There are no specific requirements to enroll in the Webmaster Certificate Program. However, you should be familiar with using the World Wide Web, and be comfortable with computers and the Internet in general. Later courses in the webmaster curriculum are considerably advanced. Check the course descriptions for prerequisities for specific courses as well as for any preliminary studies you can do.
If you lack some of this background, you are still welcome in the program, but completing the program may be difficult. Contact the Webmaster Certificate Program Coordinator at 512-223-7588 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can earn an ACC Webmaster Certificate entirely online. In fact, people in Australia, Canada, Europe, India, and various parts of the U.S. are doing it right now! Almost all courses are available online as well as in regular computer-equipped classrooms. For details, see the current or upcoming course schedule or contact the Program Coordinator at 512-223-7588 or at email@example.com.
The online courses are identical to the classroom courses but are conducted and evaluated entirely online. After registering for an online class, please see www.austincc.edu/webcert/online.html for your course entry procedures.
The ACC Webmaster Certificate program consists of 9 required seminars (in either specialization track) plus 3 required elective seminars for a total of 160 to 200 hours (total in-classroom hours). Some classes are 12 hours long but some are also 24 hours long. The costs are far less than what you would pay for similar high quality courses in the private sector. There is no initial program registration fee; you pay separately for each class you take. Limited financial aid may be available for the courses in this program. See the current schedule for upcoming webmaster classes for details.
Most students take about a year to complete the program. However, it may take longer if certain courses are already filled when you attempt to register. The courses in the ACC Webmaster Program are held during days, in the evenings and on weekends.
All of the ACC Webmaster courses are offered several times per year - in most cases at least once every fall, spring, and summer semester.
