What you'll learn in this wordpress training:

WordPress is the premier content management system for those seeking an easy, user-friendly way to set up and maintain a website. In this workshop, you’ll walk through the basics of getting your site live quickly and discover various free templates, as well as premium resources, that require little to no coding skills and will have your site looking polished.
