Welcome to The Essential WordPress Handbook

We’ve researched the competition, and we’ve filled the gap. While there are many other WordPress courses and workshops you could consider, ours is the only live, deep-dive, fully instructor-led course. We don’t just teach you the basics of WordPress. We teach you how to become a WordPress web designer.

We offer a deep dive into what is truly possible in WordPress. Unlike other workshops we’ve seen, we don’t stop at simply teaching you how to customize a theme—you’ll also learn how to turn it into a truly unique website experience. We equip you with knowledge of best UX/UI practices, the latest and greatest tools, themes, plugins, and SEO to help your website perform at a high level. After completing our 1-day workshops, you’ll have the tools and knowledge, and support you need to keep learning and developing your WordPress web design skills.
