York River Academy has become a Certified Internet Webmaster Authorized Training Provider and we can now offer up to three certifications in the Master CIW Designer track. CIW states that the "Master CIW Desiner certification can lead to a successful career as a Web designer, creative director, Web marketing/business specialist or art director."

    Students at YRA are encouraged to take the CIW Foundations exam after their first year. This will allow the student to become either a CIW Professional with one more certification in Site Design or become a CIW Master Designer in the second after completing the Site Designer and E-Commerce exams.

    The CIW credentials are recognized and endorsed by several industry organizations including the Internetional Webmasters Association.
