About this Course
Javascript has become the most import language you can learn.

Years ago, you could produce a web site with HTML alone. Now, Javascript is a critical technology that makes not just interactive web sites, but full web applications. Modern sites don't just display data but generally help users complete tasks such as making a reservation or buy an item.

Javascript is a critical part of these transactions. Handling everything from dynamic screen content to interacting with remote servers, every developer needs Javascript.

And, Javascript is not just a web language any more. Due to related technologies like Node and Phone Gap Javascript can now be used in web development (client and server side) and mobile development.

This is only part of the reason that Javascript is THE language to know.

FACT: Javascript is the most desired skill among those who hire new (junior) developers.

(This means that Javascript skills and certification may just be your key to a job).

If you're reading this we don't have to sell you upon becoming a developer. You already know it's one of the most lucrative (and fastest growing) career tracks out there no degree required.

What Will I Learn to Do with Javascript?

Javascript is a powerful language.

Here are just a few of things you can do with Javascript

Create applications that are constantly updated via a web service. Stock market, weather, and transportation apps work with web services to provide users with current information.

Create apps that take advantage of the HTML5 canvas which allows data visualizations, animations and even gaming!

Create applications with reactive interfaces that provide users with an optimized experience.

It's tasks like this that make Javascript critical for developers. Javascript is essential to just about any project that appears on the web or in mobile.

This is where you can separate yourself from the average developer.

As a Designated Javascript Specialist, you are qualified to create, maintain and edit Javascript code. You'll be able to help development teams create relevant, reactive web and mobile applications or even create applications on your own.

In this certification program you'll learn:

How to Output to the console
How to output content to the browser window by manipulating the DOM
The getElementById() command
How to use variables in Javascript

How Does the Certification Program Work?

First: Complete the Course

Each of the certification courses includes 5 to 10 hours of video training. Each course also includes lab exercises to help you retain the information in the video lectures. The courses feature study guides, practice questions, and activities, all with one goal: to help you learn new coding skills in Javascript.

The courses are designed to be completed in a few days, if significant time is invested. However, you may spread the work out for as long as you’d like. There are no calendars or limits on individual courses. Simply work with the course until you’re confident that you’ve mastered the material.

Next: Pass the Exam

Once you complete the course, you'll be eligible to sit for the exam. The exam is composed of fifty multiple choice questions with a minimum passing score of 80%. The exam isn’t designed to be difficult, but to verify that you retained the information in the course. You have up to an hour to complete the exam. However, most people complete the exam much more quickly. If you don’t pass the exam the first time you take it, you may sit for the exam again.

When you pass the exam and complete the class, you’ll have earned your certification as a Javascript specialist. Congratulations!

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
