Thanks All of you, I appreciate your help.
Start a blog/website
I thought a Webmaster was someone that had their own website. You can farm out site development etc. to those with the required skills.

1) Get hosting space

A webmaster is the master/ruler/lord/emperor of a given web site. That's it. He/she doesn't even have to be the one making the content - just the administrator of the site, with full privileges including shell/ssh access.
For example, I am the webmaster of http://www.stone-d.net, http://jiks.stone-d.net, http://192.168.0.1/, and http://127.0.0.1/.
In fact, to highlight this even further, according to RFCs 2142 and 2068 all websites have an email address for this person: firstname.lastname@example.org. By default, all administrative correspondence related to the website goes there, whereas email related queries AND lost email goes to email@example.com.
Things get hazy when virtual hosting and resold hosting solutions come into play, or, even worse, blogs like MUO, but I'm sure you get the picture.
Goto http://www.w3schools.com n learn all the languages taught there and you may be a webmaster
Define "webmaster", because I don't really think that's a thing nowadays.
If you want to a web *designer*, then you need an eye for design. This isn't really something to be learned; you need to be born an artist.
If you want to manage a site, you'll need good people skills. You'll need to juggle your staff, make lists of features for them to develop, perhaps be on top of getting advertisers, and deal with users. This is from experience that I'm saying this.
Each is a distinct role in a reasonable size website. But best to ask yourself if you want to work for someone else for a secure income, or go it alone and try to built your own site from the ground up. The fact you've asked this question means you're probably not the latter type, so get some skills, then go work for someone.
It is not a one time task but requires continuous work. Use services like alexa.com, google Analytics, statcounter.com, etc to analyze your website and become a webmaster. Many browser addons are also available to help you optimize your website.
It really depends on what you want to do. Do you want to build sites from scratch, build data driven sites, blogs, design fancy sites, get code and design from others and fill in, or write scripts or build and host sites for others? What do you think a webmaster is?
Ahh, that fine institution of knowledge that is eHow.
Hmm, I did not find the article so inspiring. I think some eHow articles are good but most of them are to limiting on the amount of info they give. I thinks James' piece lower down was just as informative.
Being a webmaster isn't something you can become overnight, mainly because of the word "master" - you have to be good at it.
I suggest purchasing some hosting, a domain name and install WordPress, Joomla, Drupal (manually) and create a website that a lot of people visit that you have to run yourself. MakeUseOf.com is powered by WordPress.
I would also start learning HTML5, CSS, Javascripipt, Jquery, PHP - that will get you started
good, this is the correct idea, try to get exactly what you need not just collect certificates
You've said it all.
