To become a web designer you need to have an eye for designing, knowledge of certain softwares and some programming skills.

I am listing important skills for a professional web designer:

Web page production in HTML/CSS
Social Engine Optimization
Business sense

You need to know operating of following softwares that are useful for designing:

1) Photoshop, 2) Flash, 3) Corel draw and 4) Dreamweaver

In addition to that you also need to learn coding and programming skills to build website. Programming skills you MUST know are:
HTML and CSS ( these are are the building blocks of all web development.)
Application programming interface (API) (such as Document Object Model - DOM, for markup documents, like HTML, SVG, MathML, and XML.)
PHP, Jquery and Java (are other important programme coding language web designers must know.)

Website maintenance and trouble shooting skills:
Web designers are also engaged in uploading website online, website maintenance and any troubleshooting. For this, you should know webhosting platforms, web traffic analysis, web content management etc.

Short term courses to learn web designing:
Online free as well as paid courses (for example,
