Frequently Asked Questions
What Will I Need?
To begin you will need to purchase Web Hosting, a Domain Name and a WordPress Theme. These are important to get up and running with WordPress.
But I Thought WordPress is Free?
WordPress itself is free but Web hosting is not, that is something that has to be paid for. Without Web Hosting you cannot run WordPress.
There is a free version of WordPress but in this course we only focus on the professional version. More of which will be explained in class.
Do I Need Anything Else?
You can use your own images, WordPress Theme, videos etc.
We do supply some standard images, videos etc. We do also let you use a copy of our WordPress theme, this theme is probably the best theme on the market right now. Although we do let you use the latest version of the theme to practice on we do suggest that you buy the theme itself as this will allow you automatic updates.
How Often Do You Run Courses?
We offer courses a couple of times per year.
Usually we run courses in January, during Summer and in September. Currently the courses in September are run through Blackrock Further Education Institute in Blackrock, Co. Dublin, in which they take the bookings for the courses.
Do You Offer Private or 1 to 1 Courses?
Yes. We do offer private and one to one classes, by arrangement.
The private and one to one courses are exactly the same as the group training, except with the benefit of being in a smaller class or individual setting, where you will have my full attention and get the most for your money.
What Are Your Payment Terms?
For private classes a deposit will be required in order to hold your place for the desired time, with the outstanding balance to be paid on the first class.
For one to one classes there is an hourly charge. Please contact for further information on fees.
