Popular Joomla Training Topics

Many clients prefer a flexible Q & A style of training, sometimes staggared in short bursts over a number of days, (or even just when you get stuck), whilst others prefer a more structured progression through the core tasks of managing a Joomla website. It's 100% up to you.

Basic training on how to add and edit pages and new menu links can typically be completed in around 1-3 hours depending upon your level of experience, whilst many people prefer more in depth training on more advanced subjects, or additional follow up sessions to refresh the basics.
