WordPress is the most popular, open-source, Content Management System on the market ever. There’s almost 60 million sites on their WordPress.com platform and many more are self-hosted. Doing some WordPress training online will give you the edge when it comes to running a business and publishing online.
I offer a 1-on-1 training course for individual users at very affordable rates and group training sessions for up to 6 people. Rates vary depending on what you want to learn but the standard rate of $20 an hour is enough for the average website owner.
Included in the cost of the session is a direct email address and a phone number for you to contact me on if you’re need of additional help plus access to a fresh test site on my development server for you to make use of – both before & after the training.
The hour is a full 60 minutes plus any additional time before hand to get to know you and what you need as well as direct contact with me whenever you need it.

WordPress Training Online
My 1 on 1 WordPress training covers all topics from installation through to customization, coding, performance optimizations – and everything in between. To save time we will focus on the things you and your business need to know in order for you to succeed.
What you need to learn and what you want to learn is the complete focus – you drive the session with your questions.
I offer a group based training session for between 2 and 6 people at rates starting from $25 per hour. The WordPress group training sessions cover the same topics as the 1-on-1 training and is driven by your questions and needs.
If your company has a few people who will maintain the website then it’s best if they all know how to do it properly.
Content Sites or
During the sessions we could work on either content sites or e-commerce sites. For the sake of ease let’s define a content site as a site containing articles, pictures or videos relating to your company or subject and define e-commerce sites as an online store.
It’s important to define which you’ll be working with before the training as it will make a big difference in the direction taken.
Purpose of the WordPress Test Site
As a bonus I am including a FREE WordPress installation after the training for you to use whenever you are starting work on your own site as I have found that people shy away from the installation.
You can test, practice and break things on the provided test site without worry of loosing or destroying your own site. If your interested in the installation process then let me know, I will show you how to install WordPress on your own server FREE outwith the cost of the training as well as the FREE WordPress installation offered after the training.
