In the WordPress Advanced class, you will work closely with your instructor in a small class setting on a test WordPress website while in class. On this site, you can experiment with various plugins and theme configurations that you will be able to apply back at your office. Our instructors will not be able to work on every student’s specific website, but the knowledge you will gain will be able to be immediately applied once you leave class.
