WordPress Bootcamp

WordPress Bootcamp

This comprehensive WordPress training teaches foundational skills through advanced topics over four consecutive days. The WordPress bootcamp covers the same materials as the introductory and advanced WordPress courses, although it is delivered as an intensive WordPress course in a single week. Participants learn fundamental processes from WordPress setup, to updating WordPress sites as needed, using Media in WordPress, installing WordPress themes, and troubleshooting common WordPress issues. The WordPress bootcamp starts with entry-level topics then migrates to more advanced skills as the week progresses. If you would prefer to take the introductory and advanced courses separately, you can find dates for them in the WordPress classes section of our site.

WordPress Bootcamp Course Dates

All classes are led by a live instructor. Class times listed are Eastern time.
