Below is our WordPress training schedule for August and September 2021.

Based on feedback from last year’s schedule, we are combining basic and advanced blogging into one session. You will also see there are only four sessions, which will run for four consecutive weeks. When there are enough people interested in making changes to the front end of their website, we will schedule a fifth session for working in Divi Builder.

Training is included with all Silent Sidekick websites. If you do not have a site created by Silent Sidekick, please call or email to inquire about pricing.
