What is WordPress Custom Themes Training?

WordPress Custom Themes Training is a practical course delivered in the style of a workshop. The web design training course teaches candidates how to customise and integrate their own design ideas using WordPress. The WordPress Custom Themes Training is all about teaching candidates how to make their blogs and websites look exactly how they desire, by learning about WordPress themes, templates, and custom menus. Due to the workshop style of this training course, candidates who wish to combine their blog into a website are asked to bring along their own HTML templates. However, template examples will also be available at the course. This course aims to give candidates a more advanced understanding of the characteristics of WordPress, and to provide them with the skills to enable website personification.
