Should You Go On A WordPress Training Course?

Well, it depends on two things:

  1. Do you want to be able to manage the content and layout of your website yourself?
  2. Would you prefer a professional to do it for you?

If you answered yes to number 2, then that’s an easy fix. Email me at karys@pivotalweb.co.uk and we’ll sort you out with a support package.

If you answered yes to number 1, then there are a couple of things you need to think about before launching yourself straight into your website.

Do I need to go on a WordPress Training Course?

We all know that in business time is money. While WordPress is easy to use, it does require a bit of a learning curve to really get to grips with it. And, obviously, being able to find the exact section of your website that you need straight away will save you time in the long run.

People who attend WordPress training courses have sometimes tried to teach themselves using online resources or muddled through YouTube videos and have, in the end, had to give up. This is because WordPress is so easy to customise by plugging things into it or adding new themes that not all WordPress websites will look exactly the same in the back end. Through face-to-face training, you get professional help with your own website.

Always pick a WordPress training course that mixes practical work with theory. See whether the trainer provides laptops for you to log in to your own website and make changes in real-time.

One-to-One Tuition or Group Courses?

Group training is beneficial when everyone is working at the same level and can help each other out. It also allows for longer sessions to cover more ground and it is not quite as intense.

One-to-one tuition sessions are mainly for people who have attempted to set up their WordPress websites and started putting content on it but have hit a brick wall. They just don’t know where else to go to make the changes they need. These are intense sessions but are tailored to the individual and their website.
