Gained a lot of information out of the workshop. The content was relevant and Andy communicated the contentvery well.

I loved the course and would love to do more (time and finances permitting :-)). I now feel a lot more confident about using WP and can't wait to get stuck in. Belinda is a fantastic teacher and very easy to understand. She had the answer to every question. I would definitely do another class with her.

I came here knowing 1%. At times I felt I wouldn't understand but Belinda was very patient and explained everything. There are still things that I think I may struggle to remember but I have learned so much and I will remember because I intend to practice and set up a couple of dummy websites. She never rushed us and some people thought there were too many people int he class - I did not find this a problem in my learning (and I was very green).
