NJIT announces online WebMASTER TNG certificate. This non-credit, professional development certificate is comprised of 3 separate courses. Together they provide the full array of skills that an IT professional must master to stay current and ahead of the curve in modern web based development. Unlike learning on your own through self-study or networking with IT colleagues, this online course offers a richly produced, structured, learning environment with an instructor; and because it is online, it does not require any travel to an NJIT classroom.

This certificate is perfect for anyone already in or reentering the IT workforce with an interest in being able to create, develop, or maintain local, networked and internet content using the newest technology. Eligibility for the program is based on student's demonstrated general knowledge of: web-based content using the prior HTML standard, database connectivity with web pages, and the process of serving public web pages on the internet. Successful completion of this program earns the student a certificate from NJIT, a leading technology university. Additionally, successful completion of this class allows students to list their training and skills on a resume and to speak about it during an interview for employment or promotion. The certificate is a university credential attesting to the successful student's skills in the web content field. Three continuing education units (CEUs per course, 9 CEUs for the complete certificate are also offered).

The Online WebMASTER TNG Certificate is comprised of three courses:

Web Author– Learn how to code simple HTML5 Web pages prior to using front-end applications for higher-level programming.
