WebYoda Certifications History
The WebYoda certifications were the first nationally recognized webmaster certifications available. In October 1997, WebYoda, in partnership with Florida State University, began developing the first national webmaster certification standard. The first WebYoda certification was awarded on March 09, 1998. To date, WebYoda has awarded over 7781 certifications.

WAW Certification Overview
The WebYoda Associate Webmastertm (WAW)tm certification is our entry-level certification and covers our first four core webmaster courses. The WAW certification is for candidates seeking the knowledge to develop and activate their own basic website and avoid the large fees of outsourcing the project to someone else.

The WAW certification is for anyone who wants to improve his/her HTML/XHTML and CSS skills without making a major commitment. This certification is the prerequisite to the WCW certification exam, and provides the skills needed to acquire an entry-level webmaster position for maintaining existing static websites or building simple websites from scratch. The exam is 64 questions, and students have 90 minutes to complete the exam, which is timed by our server. Candidates must score 70% or higher to pass the exam and be awarded the WAW certification.
