Course Requirements

All participants must have an existing WordPress website for which they have access to the dashboard. WordPress is based on a hierarchical access system. Participants must ideally have full admin access. Editor and author access may not be sufficient depending on the level of understanding and customisation required.

All participants must bring their own laptop computers. Both Apple Macs and PCs are fine. iPads and tablets are not suitable.

This course is an ideal environment to add real content with the guidance of a tutor. It is very interactive and you will be adding and editing content throughout the day. Please bring with you sample or real content you’d like to add. This can include text, images, videos, PDFs and the like. If in doubt, please bring what you have.

A basic knowledge of word processing, e.g. Microsoft Word, is helpful and it is recommended participants make a backup of their website prior to the course.
