Below is our WordPress training schedule for roughly the first half of 2021. Like most, we are keeping fingers crossed that 2021 will bring some relief to the pandemic and we can travel again! So we are going to keep some options open for the second half of the year.

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 from Silent Sidekick, please call or email to inquire about pricing.
