WordPress Classes

we teach wordpressWe offer both virtual courses with live webinars and small in-person sessions where we can offer you personalized attention while you learn the latest version of WordPress – even while you work on your own website. We provide custom-learning by gearing each session to the students who attend so no two sessions are the same!

IMPORTANT: Our classes are designed for self-hosted WordPress websites (aka WordPress.org) and not those hosted on WordPress.com. If you’re not sure of the difference, please read our comparison article.

All in-person classes are held in the South King County area of Washington State.

Prerequisites for ALL paid classes*

  • laptop or tablet with WiFi capability
  • pre-purchased domain name and web hosting – see our Resources page for hosting company recommendations
  • latest installation of WordPress

*When you sign up for a class you’ll get a step-by-step guide to help make sure you’re ready for the class.

Introduction to WordPress – FREE Webinar!

This 1-hour introductory session is for those who are brand new to WordPress and want to see if it will meet their needs.

It’s designed for people who have never had a website before, people who want to find out more about WordPress, and people who have a website, but don’t feel like they have the tools or the knowledge to manage it on their own.

Best of all, you don’t have to be a techie or a computer expert to attend! I promise to go over all the information in every day language and answer all your questions, too.

We’ll cover

  • Why you should use WordPress to develop your website.
  • Which version of WordPress you should choose: WordPress.com or WordPress.org (aka self-hosted)
  • Where to find a theme design you’ll love…and how to change it if you change your mind.
  • How to make sure your website will work well on computers, tablets, and phones.
  • And, of course, all the details on how to sign up for my next online or in-person classes.
