On completing this 2 day course, you will be confidently using WordPress to create and implement visually exciting web sites. The course will take you right from installing and setting up WordPress through to customising WordPress with plug-ins and using themes to further enhance the design look of your site.


Course Target Audience and delegate prerequisites

You will need basic PC or Mac skills, including a solid understanding of a computer's operating system (Windows or Mac OS). You will also need to know how to launch a program, create and save files, and copy files from CDs and other media. An understanding of HTML and CSS would be useful but is not essential.

Excellent course. I have a better understanding of WordPress and feel confident to make greater use of it by improving the website my company currently has. I only booked a one day course but will certainly consider booking the second day at a later stage.
