If you've aspirations to be a professional web designer qualified appropriately for the job market today, you should find training in Adobe Dreamweaver. The complete Adobe Web Creative Suite should also be learned comprehensively. This will educate you in Action Script and Flash, amongst others, and will prepare you for the Adobe Certified Expert or Adobe Certified Professional (ACE or ACP) certification.

In order to become a well-rounded web professional however, there is much more to consider. You'll need to study various programming essentials like HTML, PHP and database engines like MySQL. A practical knowledge of E-Commerce and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) will also improve your CV and employability.

Ensure all your qualifications are current and commercially required - forget courses that only give in-house certificates. All the major commercial players such as Microsoft, CompTIA, Adobe or Cisco each have globally renowned skills programs. These big-hitters will make sure you're employable.

The somewhat scary thought of securing your first job is often relieved by some training providers because they offer a Job Placement Assistance programme. Ultimately it isn't a complex operation to find the right work - assuming you're well trained and qualified; because there's still a great need for IT skills in the UK today.

Get your CV updated straight-away though - you should get plenty of help from your training provider on this. Don't put it off until you've graduated or passed any exams. You might not even have taken your exams when you will be offered your first junior support position; although this won't be the case if interviewers don't get sight of your CV. In many cases, a specialist independent regional employment agency (who will, of course, be keen to place you to receive their commission) will be more pro-active than a recruitment division from a training organisation. It also stands to reason that they'll know the area and local employers better.

In a nutshell, as long as you put the same commitment into landing your first job as into training, you won't have any problems. A number of trainees strangely spend hundreds of hours on their training course and do nothing more once they've passed their exams and seem to expect employers to find them.

Far too many companies only concern themselves with gaining a certificate, and completely miss what you actually need - which is of course employment. You should always begin with the end in mind - don't get hung-up on the training vehicle. Avoid becoming one of those unfortunate students who choose a training program that on the surface appears interesting - and get to the final hurdle of an accreditation for an unrewarding career path.

Stay focused on where you want to go, and build your study action-plan from that - don't do it the other way round. Stay on target and study for a job that will keep you happy for many years. You'd also need help from a professional that understands the market you're considering, and who can give you 'A day in the life of' explanation of the job being considered. This really is of paramount importance as you'll need to know whether or not you've chosen correctly.
