Companies Training In Adobe Dreamweaver & Flash – The Options

By Guest Author On December 10, 2010 Under Personal Development

Nearly all aspiring web designers start their careers with Adobe Dreamweaver training. It’s most likely the favourite environment for web development on the planet.

For applications done commercially it’s important to have a full understanding of the full Adobe Web Creative Suite. This will include (but is by no means restricted to) Action Script and Flash. Should you desire to become an Adobe Certified Expert or Adobe Certified Professional (ACE or ACP) then such knowledge is non-negotiable.

Having knowledge of how to build the website is just the start. Driving traffic, content maintenance and knowledge of some programming essentials are the next things. Think about courses with additional features that cover these skills (such as PHP, HTML, MySQL etc.), as well as E-Commerce and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).

An all too common mistake that students everywhere can make is to focus entirely on getting a qualification, instead of focusing on where they want to get to. Schools are full of students that chose an ‘interesting’ course – instead of the program that would surely get them the career they desired.

It’s quite usual, for example, to thoroughly enjoy one year of training and then find yourself trapped for decades in a career that does nothing for you, entirely because you stumbled into it without the correct level of soul-searching when you should’ve – at the outset.

Make sure you investigate your leanings around career progression and earning potential, and whether you intend to be quite ambitious. You need to know what the role will demand of you, what qualifications are needed and how to develop your experience.

We advise all students to speak to an experienced professional before they make a decision on a particular training path. This gives some measure of assurance that it contains the relevant skills for the chosen career.

An important area that is sometimes not even considered by people thinking about a course is ‘training segmentation’. Essentially, this is the way the course is divided up for drop-shipping to you, which makes a huge difference to where you end up.

Many companies enrol you into some sort of program spread over 1-3 years, and send out each piece as you complete each section or exam. If you think this sound logical, then consider this:

Students often discover that the company’s ‘standard’ path of training isn’t ideal for them. You may find that it’s more expedient to use an alternative order of study. Perhaps you don’t make it at the pace they expect?

To avoid any potential future issues, it’s normal for most trainees to insist that all study materials are couriered out in one package, all at the beginning. It’s then your own choice how fast or slow and in what order you want to go.

Sometimes students presume that the traditional school, college or university track is the way they should go. So why are commercial certificates becoming more popular with employers?

Accreditation-based training (in industry terminology) is more effective in the commercial field. Industry has acknowledged that specialisation is essential to service the demands of a technologically complex world. Adobe, Microsoft, CISCO and CompTIA are the key players in this arena.

Clearly, an appropriate quantity of associated information has to be covered, but precise specifics in the required areas gives a commercially educated person a huge edge.

Imagine if you were an employer – and you wanted someone who could provide a specific set of skills. What’s the simplest way to find the right person: Trawl through reams of different degrees and college qualifications from various applicants, having to ask what each has covered and what commercial skills they have, or select a specialised number of commercial certifications that precisely match your needs, and make your short-list from that. The interview is then more about the person and how they’ll fit in – rather than on the depth of their technical knowledge.

Authorised exam preparation packages are a must – and must be supplied by your training provider.

Due to the fact that many IT examination boards are American, it’s essential to understand how exam questions will be phrased and formatted. It’s not sufficient simply going through the right questions – it’s essential that you can cope with them in the proper exam format.

Obviously, it’s very important to be confident that you are completely prepared for your final certified exam prior to doing it. Practicing simulated exams adds to your knowledge bank and will avoid you getting frustrated with failed exams.
