  • What is a CMS?
  • Advantages of using Wordpress
There are thousands of WordPress themes available for e-commerce, small businesses, blogs, and just about anything else you can think of! Students will learn how and where to look for the best templates and will begin learning how to customize them using the WP Dashboard.
Plugins are used to extend WordPress functionality. Students will explore available plugins and learn how to integrate them into their sites.
Part of the point of Wordpress is to allow everyday people to update the content of sites without waiting weeks for a contracted programmer to add a comma. Designing your website in such a way as to make its maintenance easy and simple is one of the most important parts of WP design.
Students will learn how to acquire the right domain for their business, choose the best hosting service, & publish their website to make it live for the world to see.

Creating and maintaining a website is expensive. You basically have three options: pay a contractor or firm and hope they get it right quickly, hire and manage your own expensive team of programmers, or learn how to do it yourself. Who has time for that? Most people don't have the time or money to learn to program, but thanks to free technologies like Wordpress, anyone can now create and maintain beautiful websites with learning only basic programming techniques.

In our 4 week, immersive WordPress Crash Course, we teach business owners, entrepreneurs, and professionals how to make the sites they need by mentoring them through the creation of their own live, fully functional Wordpress site.

This is also a great course for any person excited by the idea of making extra money as a freelance web developer. We'll teach you how to install Wordpress, manage your dashboard, select and customize attractive themes, install plugins to add extra functionality and how to choose a domain and manage hosting, among many other topics!

To help you succeed, we provide experienced mentors to answer any questions you may have and help you get your website looking just right. We'll even start you off with a free domain name and web hosting for a year!
