WordXpress training course outline
Time 10am – 5pm.
Please note that you will need a desktop computer or laptop (with wi-fi) as the course is ‘hands-on’.
Attendees get their own WordPress site (hosted on our servers) to learn on during the day and for 1 year after the course or can use their own ISP (Internet Service Provider) to host their website. We will need to know beforehand if you wish to use your own ISP so we can install WordPress and set up your Database via the Control Panel onto the server of your ISP.
Absolutely no experience required. As long as you can use a computer you will be able to build a great looking website with WordPress.
