Excellent, well scoped and thought out. All key foundation aspects of wordpress covered,Excellent. very patient and extremely knowledgeable ,It was not really a course taken to aid my career as such as I will not be doing enough web design to warrant risking it on my business. This was a personal course. however, I do now know how difficult it would be to build a functioning website so when an agency quotes me for a new site I can tell them how much I think it is worth!
The course is very useful for beginners in web development and people who are not interested in coding but would like to build there own website. It is very chilled out although it still provides a lot of inside into the worldwide web. I would definitely recommend this course to anybody who would like to build own portfolios of work.,The trainer was clearly an expert in the field and had a substantial amount of patience explaining all the details to the beginners.
