Practical WordPress Skills for Your Daily Work. Up and Running in 4 Hours!
WordPress is the defacto standard software tool for creating websites from simple blogs to complex, search-engine tuned commercial websites. By some estimates, as many as 60 million websites are built using WordPress.
It’s no surprise then that a good working knowledge of this tool is a very valuable career skill to have. WordPress is designed to be simple enough for a web novice to use, but also powerful enough for a programming ace to use. Because WordPress can grow with your personal capabilities, it offers a unique career path opportunity for anyone willing to invest in WordPress training.
One of the reasons that this tool is so popular is that it is offered for free at wordpress.org; but should you use the free edition? What are the differences between the free edition and paid editions? How do you use my own domain name with a blog? How do I grow my blog into a full-blown website, and how do I maintain my company’s website? All these question, and many more, are answered in our WordPress Kickstart class, exclusively offered at ExecuTrain.com.
Our unique series of “Kickstart” professional training classes are designed by professional educators to quickly enable our students with the skills necessary to get started with particular valuable career tools and topics. We forego theory and academics in favor of practical skills, and we focus specifically on useful skills transfer.
WordPress Kickstart is intended for students with little or no experience with WordPress. Typical students wish to advance their career skills, typically start by creating a personal or professional blog, and aim to increase their skill levels to maintaining business-grade websites. Many students find themselves in the situation of maintaining a website created by someone else. WordPress Kickstart assumes only basic skills with web browsers, navigating the Internet, and basic command of web terminology.
