Well for now I'm just a novice at learning to code. But is it true after completing the Front End Web Develpoment course I can make around $55,000 on average?

@LayAndre Davis,In Front End Web Development track you will learn how to build beautiful, interactive websites by learning the fundamentals of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript — three common coding languages on which all modern websites are built. This is a useful and lucrative skill to acquire as it used by nearly every single business in the world that needs a website to communicate to its customers. By the end of this track, you’ll have all the skills required to build your own websites or even start a career with one of the thousands of companies that have a website.

The payscale amount may differ from country to country. This data may be from the companies in United States and the amount indicated here is much higher compared to what web developers make in my country.

As Rasbin Rijal has said, expected salaries will differ from country to country. I am currently doing the CSS Basics course in the Front End Web Development track and am expecting to enter the industry at the junior front end developer level upon completion, which in the UK can vary salary-wise between around £18,000 - £25,000 depending on location. At the moment though I am looking on freelance websites and feel like I could probably start bidding on basic jobs now which would give me some real world experience and some work to add to my portfolio.
