"I've been building websites in WordPress for myself and for clients for many years now as well as training people on how to get started and get the best from WordPress. I love how WordPress enables anyone to build a great looking website with a huge range of functionality, regardless of what previous experience they have with building sites. You can start from scratch and have a good looking website up and running by the end of the day, as this course demonstrates."

    Finally a course that made me 'get' Wordpress

    I've had a Wordpress site for years, and have been trained in it before (including full, live days), but still felt often overwhelmed by all the options and functions. This course has finally helped me 'crack the code' and understand the different elements and functions of Wordpress. I now know what to do, and where to look when I don't understand something. And I can always go back into the course and revise the section I need help with. Top marks!

    Really useful and I now have my own on-line store

    I'd not used WordPress before and wasn't even sure it was right for the web-store I wanted to start. However, this course gave me the information I needed to get most of it set up and also the confidence to complete the remaining parts. Covering privacy and security was an important topic to me given I was aiming build an e-commerce site.

    Overall I think the course is really effective, I now feel competent using WordPress, and I had never used it before. The ‘activity’ section is very helpful to build confidence with using each feature. I would wholeheartedly recommend this to people looking to build a more professional-looking and effective website, I learned so much in such a short space of time!
