Why choose WordPress?
WordPress is now considered by many to be the most popular choice for building web based content. This popular content management system (CMS) has continued to evolve over the years and many businesses and individuals are now seeing the advantages of incorporating this system within their own online presence.
What’s included in the course?
The course is run over three consecutive evening sessions (Tue, Wed, Thr,) from 5pm to 9pm. By doing it this way means that we are not trying to cram it all in one day. There is much more to learn about WordPress and information overload is quite often a symptom many people suffer from. My primary aim from the outset is to teach you and not just simply fill your head with what WordPress can do. I would much rather you go away having the confidence and skills you need to work on your own website.
The course starts with an introduction to Domain Hosting and Registration. The foundation of a good website relies on good hosting, regardless of what platform or structure it is built on. The course is designed for a maximum of 10 delegates at anyone time. Each delegate will require a Laptop, Wifi facilities will be provided at the venue. By the end of the course you will have a fully functioning website running on a WordPress platform.
