About WordPress

What is WordPress?

WordPress is by far the most popular content management system (CMS) used online, with 34% of all websites powered by WordPress (including this one). It’s used to build and maintain a variety of websites, including hobby-based sites, online stores, business websites and blogs. WordPress makes it easy to add content and update the appearance of your site without having to know anything about coding or programming.

Why use WordPress?

There are a few reasons WordPress is the CMS of choice for 1 in 3 websites online. Here are just a few of them:

  • WordPress is user-friendly, featuring a simple interface that makes it easy for non-tech people to add content and make changes to their site.
  • WordPress is customisable, allowing you to create a site that 100% represents your business or your passion with the help of over 5,000 themes and 57,000 plugins.
  • WordPress is scalable, so you can add more pages, posts and content as your business grows, without having to worry about moving to a bigger site.
  • WordPress is SEO friendly, which means search engines can read and index WordPress sites more easily, helping your site rank higher in search results.

Which version of WordPress?

Did you know there are actually two versions, WordPress.com and WordPress.org? WordPress.com is hosted for free and simple to use, however, there are limitations on its functionality. On the other hand, WordPress.org (known as self-hosted WordPress) is the open-source WordPress version that you host yourself, giving you limitless options, so you can build exactly what you want and need. Check with us if you’re not sure which version you need.

About our WordPress Training

Our WordPress training is for anyone who is looking to develop skills to set up, build and manage a WordPress website. We can deliver small-group training in workplaces to train up staff inhouse or provide one on one WordPress training to sole traders or hobbyists who want to learn how to set up and manage their own sites. Whether you’ve been asked by your boss to manage the company’s website or you’re a startup with no idea how to begin, our training is for you.

Our WordPress training covers everything you need to know to set up and maintain your own WordPress site. We begin with the basics, teaching you how to install and set up WordPress and how to create pages, posts and add content. We then move onto plugins, themes and customisation, showing you how to personalise your website and get the most from the potential of the platform. We also dive into more advanced concepts, including CSS and PHP coding.

We offer three WordPress courses which cover everything you need to know as a beginner, intermediate or custom WordPress user. If you’re new to WordPress, start with our WordPress Introduction course which covers the basics. If you’re looking to expand your existing skills, our WordPress Intermediate course is a good choice. If you’re looking for more customised coaching, we can also deliver our WordPress Custom course, which we tailor to suit your needs.

If you’re unsure about which WordPress course would best suit your needs, it’s a good idea to complete our free pre-course skills analysis, which is a simple online survey to gauge your existing skill level. Based on the results, we can recommend the right WordPress training course to meet the needs of you and your staff. If you’re still not sure, give us a call to discuss your requirements.

All our WordPress training is delivered face-to-face across Sydney. To be honest, there are lots of tips and tricks we provide during training which are simply “not in the book” and not easily shared online. The best way to learn WordPress is hands-on, giving you the chance to use your own computer to complete sample exercises to reinforce learning. We believe that if you don’t explore WordPress for yourself, you won’t get the most from your learning.

Our WordPress Introduction and WordPress Intermediate courses are full-day sessions, with our WordPress Custom training usually delivered over 1 or 2 days, depending on your training needs. Our trainer comes to you, so you can select a day that best suits your business and minimise unnecessary travel for your staff. Generally, classes start at 9:00 am and finish around 4:00 pm, but we can customise these times to suit your needs, offering half-day or shorter sessions if required.

During the training session, you’ll have the option to purchase a detailed training manual to support your learning – note, they are not included in our training fees. Following the completion of the WordPress training, you will also be provided with on-going support via email. We don’t place any time limits on this support, so you can access this service as needed, as long as your support queries remain related to the content covered in the training session.

Our WordPress training is delivered by qualified trainers who hold a Certificate IV in Training & Assessment (TAE40110) and who also have experience in building WordPress sites. This means you’ll gain both the theoretical and practical knowledge you need to master WordPress. In most cases, your trainer will be Belinda Anderson, a professional website developer and trainer, with a Certificate IV in Training & Assessment and over 19 years’ experience in the training industry.
