In the course WordPress Fundamentals you will learn how to build and manage a website with WordPress. WordPress is one of the most widely used Content Management Systems and many features of WordPress are free to use.
The course starts with installing WordPress. Then the different parts of WordPress are discussed such as the dashboard, pages, posts, menus and widgets.
Next the course will discuss the settings you can apply in WordPress. This includes the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) settings, the dimensions of images and page templates.
Then attention is paid to creating pages and posts. The different blocks that make up a page are discussed and headings, links, lists, columns and paragraphs are treated. The insertion of videos and images from the media library is also on the program of the course WordPress Fundamentals.
Then it's time for the coverage of menus, explaining where to place menus and how to link them to pages and external locations.
In the course it is also explained what widgets are, how they can be customized and where they can be placed. The standard widgets and the options for expanding widgets are also discussed.
Attention is also paid to themes with which a WordPress website can be provided with its own corporate identity. The criteria for selecting a theme are treated as well as further adjustments with the customizer.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
