This was a fantastic course that covered all of the fundamentals of Wordpress through to more advanced options. John kept me engaged the whole time and took the time to run through many real working examples. This course has left me feeling confident in being able to setup my own working local server environment website which i'm super excited about!

Belinda was a fantastic teacher who was able to explain each process really clearly and pause to help anyone who was a bit confused or did something wrong.

Really informative class. Maybe spend slightly more time on learning about HTML as this was taught quite quickly.
(4.70 out of 5) Annelise B [ 22 February, 2021 ]
Engaging and helpful course. Taught me a lot of things I wanted to know, as well as things that I didn't know I needed until now. Mark was a great teacher and easily kept my interest throughout the course. Thanks.
