WordPress Advanced Testimonials

I fully recommend this course for anyone looking to develop their WordPress skills. Alice is an expert in her field and very clear in her teaching and explanations. She was happy to answer any queries and questions and did so in an easy and understandable manner. I feel confident now to get started building websites in WordPress for my clients. I highly recommend this course.
Rachel C, Web Designer
The WordPress Advanced course helped me learn about how websites work, how to set one up from scratch (including website hosting), the importance of having access the cPanel, how to analyse plugins and find errors!
Nadia K, Digital and Social Media Strategist
The WordPress Advanced course is highly recommended. The trainer was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and the modules covered were very helpful.
Michelle B, Event Manager

Fabulous - highly recommend City Desktop Training.
Patricia R, Marketing
Lovely class, great teacher and comfortable setting.
Sabrina N, Political Staffer
The small class size allowed the trainer to tailor the course material to our specific needs and requirements. It gave us all an opportunity to apply the skills and techniques to our own situations. I found that there was not a question that the trainer couldn’t find an answer to.
Morgan Dalglish, Office Admin
I now feel confident to update the company website. Great course, thank you!
Karen Garb,
Great day so glad that I enrolled!
Louis Reed, CEO

Paul Lewis, TAFE Teacher
Course was educational, looking forward to implementing my new skills.
Paul Miskimmon, Graphic Designer
The trainer was a geyser of knowledge - there was no question he didn't know the answer to, and was extremely helpful (and patient!) throughout the whole course.
Linda Hehir, Graphic Designer
Jonathon is an amazing teacher. He is an expert on the subject yet explains it in an easy to understand manner. I am primarily a print designer so the transition to web design is a completely different process. I would highly recommend this course.
L Clarke, Graphic Designer
Jonathon was very responsive and adaptable to questions and tailored the content of the course to meet our specific needs. The after course support included is a great feature too.
Jacqueline Sherlock, Administrator
I enjoyed the course Jonathon was a great instructor.
James Prior, Graphic Designer
John was very informative, open to discussion and helpful with specific areas I questioned, which were offshoots of my WordPress issues. My sincere thanks!
