Each One Day WordPress Training Course will only ever have a maximum of 10 participants, and there may be fewer. This ensures that every participant receives one-to-one attention.
The One Day WordPress Training Course will teach you best practice in website design using WordPress and will also cover the fundamentals of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).
At the end of the course you are free to take the course materials away with you to give you a clear set of reference materials to use in your home or office as you develop your site.
The cost of the One Day WordPress Training Course is £135. Should you need to cancel your place on the course you have 14 days in which to do so for a complete refund, or you can transfer to another course free of charge. Terms and conditions apply.
What you will need on the day
You are not expected to know anything about the internet or WordPress before the course.
However you should be confident in using a word-processing programme like Microsoft Word or any similar word-processing programme. You will need to bring a laptop or notebook computer (that can connect to a Wi-Fi network) with the power cable. The course material is supplied on a USB 2.0 drive. If you have a Mac you may need some way of connecting the USB to your notebook.
After the training course
Even when the course has ended, you can still get support and advice as you develop your website, by email or phone. The details of this service will be given out at the end of the day in the roundup section.
