Why choose this course?

Drupal programmers are hugely in demand as the number of organisations requiring Drupal grow. It has one of the biggest and most active developer communities and is a great skill for programmers to learn.

Students must have successfully completed the Web Programming with PHP/MySQL Part 2 course or an equivalent course in PHP/MySQL skills and Building Websites with HTML5 and CSS3 or HTML authoring skills.
