I learnt a great deal about this course that I really wish my uni would have taught us when I had to use this program (it would have made it a lot easier). Belinda is a wonderful teacher and explains things in a really easy way to understand. Overall, it was a great course!

The Word Press Essentials course was well structured and included substantial amount of content for two days. Very beneficial.

Belinda was an amazing teacher! So patient and funny. I am a TOTAL beginner. It was a fast pace course but she will go back over things/questions when I will get lost or confused which happened a few times! Thank you for the 2 days. Really useful, lots to take in and lots of practice to get there. That re-sit might come in handy in a few months for consolidation.
