Join Ray Villalobos for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Building a Responsive Single-Page Design with Sass.
Building a responsive single page design is definitely not a beginner course and I'm starting with the assumption that you have some experience creating web projects before going through this course. You should be very familiar building online projects and how HTML works. A really good course to check out is James Willingson's HTML5 structure syntax and semantics. Unlike other courses this course requires some extensive setup and use of the command line. So make sure that you're comfortable with the terminal on OS X or with a program like Git Bash on Windows.
If you need some brushing up, check out jQuery Essential Training with Joe Marini. Building a responsive single page design is not for beginners, with some background experience and key technologies, you should have no problem taking this course.
