In one weekend you will gain all the tools and knowledge you need to start a web design business. We have developed a programme that gets you up and running in no time at all.
We believe that you can only learn the really important aspects of starting a web design business face to face from someone who has been there and done it.
Books and videos are all very well but the real value comes in the tutor to student communication, the hands-on learning and the group dynamic.
Our weekend courses have a maximum of 6 delegates and take place at a hotel on the edge of Chester. There is free on site parking and it’s close to the M53 motorway and Chester railway station. The course starts at 9.15am and finish at 6pm on both days.
Every delegate gets their own dedicated WordPress website to work on over the two days of the course. Even better you get to continue working on your site for up to a month after the course free of charge. Have a look at our example websites to see what you could achieve.
