Workforce Training & Continuing Education

Web Development and Website Design

Low Tuition, Fast Results

CMYK or HTTP? Web Designer or Web Developer? Take your pick — or, pick both — with 2 low-cost, career-changing programs taught at 4 SLCC locations. If you’re downtown, Sandy-based or over in Taylorsville, you can conveniently go from underemployed to proudly employed in as few as 21 weeks. That’s just 5 months!

At $1,244 per certificate, we’re the lowest-cost local program of our kind. Here’s how we compare:

  • Dev Mountain – 13 weeks (3 months) - $11,900
  • University of Utah – 24 weeks (6 months) - $10,500
  • Neumont College of Computer Science - 36 weeks (9 months) - $10,300
  • Dev Point – 11 weeks (3 months) - $5,000
  • Salt Lake Community College – 22 weeks (5-6 months) - $1,244

Evening Schedules, Efficient Course Sequences

Are you curious about pivoting into a tech career, but not sure you have the time? You only need one evening a week – and the time it takes to watch two movies – to start learning relevant web skills. SLCC’s Tuesday or Thursday night Web Development and Web Design classes run from 5:30-8:30 pm. And courses overlap, so it’s possible to complete both types of certificates at the same time.

The Return on Your Investment

Projected Salary and Open Opportunities

$20-$35 is the expected hourly wage in Utah for entry-level positions like these:

  • Junior Web Designer or Developer
  • Front End Developer
  • Back End Developer
  • Web Application Developer

How we get you in the door

SLCC has been committed to fueling Utah’s workforce for 70+ years. Our Web Design and Web Development programs are no different; the goal is to get you working, and fast. Here’s how:

  • Your built-in, month-long internship course will connect you with a local business partner and jump-starts your industry network.
  • Your internship and coursework will help you create an interview-ready portfolio.
  • Your instructors will teach leading-edge technologies to make you relevant in Utah’s 3rd fastest growing job market. From 2007 to 2017, Utah’s job growth rate in tech averaged 3.6% per year, which is more than double that of the industry on a national level. From 2014-2024, there will be 5.5% employment growth in tech.
