Training and Support for your WordPress website

One-on-one WordPress training

Struggling with your WordPress website?

Now that you have a brand new, live website, you’ll need to learn how to update and maintain it!
That can seem overwhelming and confusing to learn.  We will teach you how to feel comfortable updating you website how to use the WordPress dashboard.

At the end of your wordpress training session, you will walk away with the knowledge to perform (at a minimum) content updates, create new pages and an overall ability to manage and update your website.

How WordPress Training Works

Why training?

Make a list of any issues you are facing with the website, or anything in particular you would like to learn or update on our website.  If you are after a general introduction to your website, just mention that in the initial contact form.

Preparation Begins!

We will need access to the website so we can get familiar with the site.  This means anything outlined in step One, we can prepare.  This saves you time as the one on one training session can run more efficiently and more productively.

One on One Training

Meet at Richmond and start the training!  Sessions are one on one and usually go for 1-3 hours, you will be advised before the session how long its estimated to take.  Sessions cover the provided Agenda.

Get Started

You will walk away able to start working on your website! If any post training support is needed, we can assist.  Second and third sessions can be organised depending on the level of skill and knowledge needed.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does training cost?

WordPress Training is $130.00 + GST per hour.

Do you provide documentation?

We provide screencasts with voiceovers from the session. At any point during the training session you can request to have screencast made. This will help you remember how the more complex parts of your website work.

I cannot get in touch with my developer.. Can you help me?

It’s one of our most common FAQ’s – When a developer leaves, or a relationship ends badly after the completion of the website.  Or sometimes once you’ve paid, the developer isn’t “interested” in you anymore… All we need is access to the website and we can assist.

What do I bring to the Session?

We do not provide any formal training documentation so bring a note pad and pen to take notes. Although it may seem simple at the time. Writing it down makes all the difference later.  Ideally you would bring a laptop with your website and images/content on the laptop so you can actively participate in the session.  There are power sources available throughout training.

How do I find my website login details?

Login details are commonly provided to you on the completion of your website from your developer.  We can provide assistance on how to find these details if you have lost username/password to the website.  We cannot complete training without access to the website.

How can I pay?

You can pay with cash on the day or via internet transfer within 7 days after the session.

I want to learn how to build WordPress Themes from Scratch... Can you help?

No.  Wordpress Melbourne offers training for businesses, community groups and organisations that need helping learning a current website. WordPress training for a developer cannot be done in training sessions – For this we suggest you contact a TAFE, university or look at online courses.

We offer custom development if you are looking for a website solution.

Is there an official certificate/statement of confirmation which you can provide in regards to the time spent training?

No. We are not officially associated with wordpress.org. We are WordPress web developers who also teach WordPress Training.

Do you provide quotes?

Yes we do. Especially if we need to do preparation work before the session.We will let you know if we plan to spend time cloning the site, researching plugins and themes etc. Usually we allow two hours on average for a session. However, If the session goes for three hours then we charge for three hours.
