Customer Review

I'm keen to get into web design and development as a new career path. I recently completed the CIW Internet Business Associate through uCertify which has got a great course layout with quizzes at the end of each section to test your knowledge.\r\n\r\nI found the lab file really useful to practice the new skills that I had learned & shown the elements where I needed to improve. The Learn & Practice tab is well designed to help revise and master the knowledge I had learned throughout the course, plus there are several mock tests to help prepare for taking the exam. Overall I found the course to be very informative & easy to follow.
