Our one-day WordPress training course – WordPress in a Day – is a hands-on training course designed for people who want to learn to build their own website in WordPress in just one day!
It is also suitable for those who already have a WordPress site and want to understand it better, though it is important to note that on the day you will not be using your own website – you will be provided with a clean WordPress installation to work on.

After attending this course delegates will be able to:
Edit content on a WordPress website
