WordPress is a free, web-based website building tool. Over 100,000 new WordPress websites are published across the globe daily, so there are plenty of WordPress examples to show you!

As a web development company, we recognise there is a growing of business owners who would like to build their own website. We run several ICT courses across Wales and this one day WordPress training course is our most popular. It covers all the basics and fundamentals of WordPress. The workshop is delivered in a hands-on way, teaching you WordPress step by step throughout the day.

Suitable for Beginners

This all day training session is a WordPress website tutorial for beginners! Any prior knowledge of Microsoft Word or an equivalent text editor would be advantageous but not essential.

Help, Support and Guidance

The WordPress training course is run by two experienced WordPress trainers. The trainers will provide help, support and answer any WordPress queries or questions. Delegates will also receive a WordPress user guide with all the topics covered.

Course Details

The morning session will cover the basic setup and configuration of WordPress. Using the standard WordPress theme (i.e. the WordPress tempate and design), you will be guided through creating pages, creating posts, adding photos and building a custom WordPress menu.

The afternoon session will cover how to find the best free WordPress theme for your business. You will be shown how to add additional functionality on your website (i.e. WordPress Plugins for Twitter), create a photo gallery, add categories for a blog, the best practices for search engine optimisation (SEO) plus many more!
