Course testimonials:

  • Renée said: 5 Stars!

  • Michelle said: I was one of the late enrolments and appreciate being given the opportunity to join on the third sessions. I was provided with the digital books to catch up in my own time and this was extremely useful because I was able to get up to speed before I got to the session. Just one comment by way of constructive criticism, if the tutor can take the class through the various general elements of WordPress for the first 45-60 mins, and after that go around the class helping students on their personal projects. I also loved the fact that the tutor has created a site for the students to refer back to even after the course finishes. This is a fantastic resource and I appreciate it greatly. PS: I notice 14 June has been ticked as having not attended. However, I did attend all sessions from 24 May to 14 June.
