Hey there. I’m a self-taught web designer myself.

I found that I really excelled my skills (in terms of validated code, etc) when I began trying to work out why things worked rather than just making sure they did.

I realised then that I was a bit of a ‘hack’ coder; and the more I looked into the right way to do things, the more I learnt. Now I don’t consider myself a hack at all :)

Be sure to validate all of your pages – that’s the easiest way to work out where you’re going wrong, and then go from there. There is so much knowledge on the web – I don’t think you need to do a course at all.

Keep an eye on Nettuts.com, ask questions in Digital Point or Webmaster World, and try to focus on one CMS (I recommend WordPress because they have so much documentation and user discussion).
