About The Programme:

Getting involved with the maintenance and upkeep of your organization’s WordPress website can be a daunting task. Like any software programme, WordPress can offer many great features, but with the flipside that there will be many opportunities to make mistakes, that might adversely affect your online presence.

This course, for those new to WordPress, is designed to break the software down into its constituent parts, and show that there is nothing to fear from logging in and making the changes that will allow you to keep the website content updated, or even introduce new content. Making changes to text; adding new images or video clips; making links; adding new downloadable documents; and so on.

After this course, you will feel confident to take control of the content management process and start building up your skills in this important area.

Course Duration:

9.30am to 12.30pm, Online, with breaks

Course Fee:
€195 per seat
(max 10 people per course)

Testimonial:

“I attended the WordPress Beginners course in February. I learned a lot about WordPress and how it is configured to give me an effective website to promote our product sales, as well as our technical support to customers.

The real value, however, came when Ian did a one-hour session with me on Zoom, going through my website from end to end, which allowed me to understand my WordPress theme, how to make sure everything gets updated, ensuring 2FA is in place for the website Admin users, and understanding how the security plug-in Wordfence works. I feel so much more in control of things now and know I can call on Ian in the future, should I run into any WordPress issues.”
