Get the most out of WordPress

1-2-1 & Group WordPress Training

If you are looking at creating a website, no doubt you will have heard about WordPress. Originally created as a blogging tool it’s ease of use and straightforward back-end has meant that it has grown in popularity and is now the go-to CMS for developers and users alike.

WordPress is easily installed and there are a multitude of off the shelf templates that can be used. Amendments to these templates can be easy, but occasionally there are tricky plugins or CSS issues that you will need extra help with.

As all websites are unique, we provide bespoke WordPress training, usually on a one-to-one basis. That way we teach you the specific skills that you need for the functionality of your site. We will give you the skills that you need to manage the content and template of your WordPress site confidently and efficiently.

We can also provide more technical training on how to install and personalise templates and plugins

Our training can be carried out at our premises in central Chorley, or at your place of work if you prefer. We offer a minimum of 3 hours to begin with and then additional hours can be added if necessary.
