The GWD Training site is committed to making sure that our training courses are available online for free and that those who want to are able to take part in appropriate professional development.
A number of online modules are available for you to complete at your own pace from anywhere with internet access, whether that be your office, on a train, or the comfort of your sofa, making them ideal for people who find it difficult to travel to events.
These courses are intended as an introduction to WordPress and other web based business solutions and are provided free of charge without warrenty. We will be adding new courses regularly.
The modules have been designed to suit all learning styles and because they are done online it means you can spend 20 minutes here or an hour there working on them at your leisure, there are no time constraints and you can resit the quiz for each module as many times as is necessary.
