WordPress training courses that enable you to edit and update your website in a day
You could choose a WordPress course that teaches you generally about WordPress. That’s understandable if you want a basic WordPress overview and a bit of hands on editing. To be honest though you can watch a few Youtube video’s and set up a free WordPress dot com account to play with and save a lot of money! You’ll mop up the easy stuff but you’ll also start to build a list of questions. That’s where our WordPress courses come in!
“WordPress courses are fine for some people but whilst you may know how many people are going to be on the course you never know what level they will be at. You could be rapidly out of your depth or twiddling your thumbs whilst the others catch up.
Crucially, most courses will be centred on a course website not your website – far from ideal!”
Our WordPress courses are based on YOUR website!
We run courses for your business based on your website, whether it’s new or old. The course will address all of your questions and probably make a few suggestions too.
After a free consultation we’ll put together a course customised to your needs. The courses are run from either your premises, Leicester city centre or Knighton. Times are arranged to suit you. Course duration is usually one day but this depends on your remit. A ‘course day’ can be split into two half days.
The cost varies dependent on the venue and duration but a base figure is £299 per day for the course – not per person – plus venue charges if we aren’t at your premises. Outside of Leicester any travel expenses will be agreed in advance. There is a suggested maximum of three people per course but more attendees are possible by arrangement.
NEW! Beginner friendly one-to-one phone training
Sometimes a training course is not the way to go. We can now offer 15 minute phone slots where we are both looking at the same screen. You get guided step by step at your pace in your premises, so no travel, parking or accommodation issues! This is a new (April 2017) service so we haven’t set up any preset sessions yet but we intend to cover subjects such as role management, setting up Contact form 7, backing up your site, image management and much, much more. Enquiries are welcome before preset sessions are completed.
Frequently asked questions
Q: Why WordPress?
A: It’s the industry standard. It has two main competitors, Drupal and Joomla. Drupal is brilliant but it gets expensive very quickly. Joomla is fading away.
Q: How do I know if my website is based on WordPress?
A: Call us, email us or send us the address here and we’ll let you know. If your website is not WordPress but you want it to be, we can build you a new WordPress site from your old site’s content.

A: We are a digital media company established in 1999. Since 2009 we have focussed on WordPress, including producing custom WordPress themes .
