Why get your CSS certification?

CSS allows for seperation between formatting, fonts, colors and other display characteristics and the source document. It enables changes to large sites or collections of documents by changing styles common to them all. A strong base of knowledge of the foundation of CSS prepares you for a career in web development. A CSS certification from NCSA demonstrates to employers that you have acquired a level of knowledge equivalent to six months experience.
