The CIW Web Development Professional certification program is an ambitious journey for the individual who wants to excel in a career in Web and IT technologies. The essential combination of HTML5, a front-end scripting language, a back-end programming language and the skills to integrate them with a database is what makes a Web Development Professional. Because of this diversity, this individual will become a valuable corporate IT team member.
To earn the CIW Web Development Professional certification, you must take and pass at least three certification exams:
CIW Database Design Specialist
CIW Advanced HTML5 & CSS3 Specialist
Passing each of these exams earns you the related individual certification. If you pass multiple exams, you will be awarded the advanced Web Development Professional certification in addition to the individual certifications. Note, previous versions of this credential required passing the CIW Perl Specialist exam. Since this exam has been retired, it is no longer required for the combined certification. However, it will apply for candidates who have previously passed it.
