Training

The Institute offers three training sessions for WordPress.

Training at the Extension county level is provided by regional trainers. Please contact your trainer for more information.

Quick Start WordPress Training

ITS offers a Quick Start WordPress training class. This training is designed for working with the UTIA WordPress theme and is a “hands-on” training, delivered via video, through K@TE or if a student, Canvas. Participants are given a tour of the WordPress environment and have their own page in the WordPress training site to edit and add block elements. When training is completed, a user should be familiar with the WordPress Dashboard and understand the concept of using blocks to build and edit pages. Concentrated attention will be with the WordPress blocks and the custom UTIA blocks. A user will also learn how to log in and out, add to the navigation and manage their profile page.

Training is 2.5 hours and participants receive a 2.5-hour training credit.

Advanced WordPress Training builds on what was covered in the Quick Start Training session. Participants have their own page in the WordPress training site to edit and add block elements.
