Comprehensive Wordpress Training Course for Beginner Web Designers
Have you ever felt overwhelmed when thinking about doing website design?
Because there are so many aspects to think about when building a website, it can feel extremely daunting.
Also, there are hundreds of web design courses available online. The problem with nearly every single one of them is that they only focus on a single component of the web design process.
I originally launched a web design course in 2014 which had 249 students enroll. The feedback from that course was excellent and very positive. Looking back now, I can see where I can improve on the course.
For the past year, I’ve been planning out how I wanted to provide the best and most comprehensive web design course for beginner web designers.
From my experience of the past course, I discovered that coding is a difficult hurdle for many when trying to build a website. And for that reason, I’ve incorporated many of the current high-quality visual tools available to eliminate as much coding as possible.
In this course, you’ll find lessons on everything from the basics of finding a domain name and website hosting to design and finally maintaining the site after it’s launched. It includes both theory and practical lessons in web design.
I’ve been doing web design since 1998 and I’ve crammed all the hard lessons I’ve learned into this course. As the saying goes, “anything is easy when you know how,” and this course will teach you how.
There is so much information in this course that I’ve divided it into 15 modules and will release a new module on the 1st of each month until the course is complete.
When you enroll you will have instant access to all published modules to date and you’ll get access to each new module when it’s published.
Are you ready to make great looking websites? I thought so!
I look forward to seeing you on the inside.
