Learning Basic WordPress Skills
Join the 100+ graduates of this popular, highly effective class who have learned how to create and maintain their own websites using WordPress, the leading Web development tool designed for use by non-technical people. YourPresenceOnTheWeb.com is pleased to continue its partnership with adult education organizations in Southern New Hampshire in offering this empowering WordPress training class.
Are you looking to create a polished, professional-looking website or blog for your small business, your non-profit organization or your personal use?
