Chris Burgess will host a four week WordPress training course on how to create your very own WordPress powered website, every Tuesday from 10 February to 3 March at the Footscray Community Arts Centre.

Suitable for beginners, the sessions will focus on how to create a website from scratch, using WordPress. Chris will cover topics such as:

  • Website set-up basics, including domain names and hosting
  • The difference between and
  • The WordPress dashboard and how to use it to create pages, posts and menus
  • How to upload, use, and insert media such as photos and videos
  • How to use themes and plugins to customise the appearance and functionality of your website

The training sessions will be limited to a small group, offering you the chance to take advantage of this personalised, (almost) one-on-one learning opportunity. While these sessions will be suitable for beginners, basic computer literacy is a pre-requisite.

All the Details:

  • When: Tuesday nights from 10 February to 3 March
  • Time: 6:30pm to 9:00pm
  • Where: Footscray Community Arts Centre, 5 Moreland Street, Footscray 3011
  • Cost: $150 (or $125 for concession) for all four sessions
  • What to bring: You can use our Mac or Windows computers, or feel free to bring along your own laptop

We thought we’d give everyone a quick update on our recent free WordPress training sessions.

After the feedback we received from our post workshop survey that was sent to previous attendees, we thought we’d try something different and hold both beginner workshops and more intermediate level workshops targeted at people already using WordPress. So far the feedback we’ve received shows we’re on the right track. We’re already planning on holding some niche workshops in the coming months.
