WordPress Training

If you want to create a website or blog for free, WordPress is the ideal solution. But if you haven't got any experience with web design this can be a bit daunting, so where do you start?

What is the WordPress Training Course?

This web-design training course can be used to learn how to use WordPress to set up and maintain your website or blog on our 1-day WordPress training course in Brighton.

Even if you are completely new to web design, our expert trainers will guide you through the process in a step by step, logical way.

WordPress training is taught in small groups and is very hands on, so during this course you'll learn to use WordPress by actually building a site. You can make a start by downloading our free Setting up a WordPress Site eBook.

You don't need to know HTML and CSS to come on the course, but you will learn some on the course!

If you already know coding, and want to be able to completely customise how your WordPress site looks, our Custom WordPress Themes training course will show you exactly how to create your own themes from scratch.

WordPress Training Course Objectives

After coming on the WordPress course you will be able to:

  • Set up Web Hosting and Download and Install WordPress
  • Configure Standard or Custom WordPress Templates
  • Build, Administer and Update a Website or Blog using WordPress
  • Add and configure WordPress Plug-ins and Widgets
  • Manage Users and WordPress Site Administration

Who is the WordPress Training Course for?

This course is suited for any individual who wishes to:

  • Create a website
  • Run an existing website
  • Start a career in developing or managing websites
  • Learn more about website building
  • Improve skills and job prospects
  • Individuals who want to create and manage their own website using the WordPress CMS to harness the power of this versatile and comprehensive platform.

If you have not used an FTP client before, please use our free guide on How to Upload Wordpress via FTP with FileZilla before attending.

Can't make it to Brighton or want to tailor your own private course? That's fine! Our trainers will also come to your premises if you would prefer in-company training. Call us on +44 (0)1273 622272 for more information.

Both myself and the other delegate (our IT Manager) found the course to be very interesting, covered all the basics (as well as a good deal more) and we were both particularly impressed with the lady who conducted the training – she managed to effectively keep a good pace, while still helping those of us who weren't quite so advanced as others (something that’s very rare).
