    Many colleges and universities are now offering Bachelor degree programs in Web Development/Multimedia. I know one major art school in Georgia (USA) - The Atlanta Art Institute just started a Bachelor of Arts in Web/Multimedia program that's taken off nicely.

    There are also some small certificate programs, but not many certificates hold their weight. For what you pay for them, it just seems like employers want a 4-year degree or comprable experience.

    training is important, no matter where you get it, at home or at a tech school for something specific or a degree program. whatever you decide to do, get good at it,, real good. this way wether you have a degree or cert, your work can speak for itself.
    turn your site into a lead generating and money making machine.

    nikul-

    there are plenty of online web design certification courses, as well as "webmaster" certification courses. as has been pointed out, though, the question is how much weight will these various certificates carry with employers etc., as there appears no "standard" or "heavyweight" ala MCSE or A+. I used to work for an online education portal and the only one at the time that seemed to carry any weight was the CIW or Certified Internet Webmaster.

    here are some schools you can check out:

    baker.edu
    New School
    Sessions.edu
    Walden Institute

    A good listing (including some of the above, plus others, as well as links to various certification associations) is
    here.

    good luck!
