Belinda our course instructor was very helpful and informative. Looking forward to working on my current website and being able to create and design new websites in the future. Practice makes perfect..
(4.80 out of 5) Jacinta B [ 12 November, 2018 ]
Was really great. Teacher answered all the student's questions and ensured everyone was following - only piece of feedback would be to spend less time on customization in the first day as this seemed quite easy to work out by yourself.

This was a great introduction to WordPress. I had a basic understanding already but there was still a huge amount we learnt. I'll feel very confident getting back to work with these new skills.

The course was full packed and I just realised that I have a sight impairment because of bad glasses. But John was very patient and I was able to follow difficult technical lessons. So thank you John, I thoroughly enjoyed the training and I got so much out of it.
