Excellent! 5-star performance for sure! Belsian Thomas was clear, methodical, prepared, and knowledgeable. He obviously is expert in WordPress and coding, conscientiously prepared the visuals and his presentation, and is a natural presenter and instructor. He listened carefully answering questions concisely and completely; he generously shared a multitude of insightful tips and recommendations; and he kept the presentation on track to meet all the advertised goals of the workshop. His genuine enthusiasm for WordPress and website design is infectious. I highly recommend attending any program he presents, and feel confident that he would also be a superb dependable consultant and website developer.

I started with almost no knowledge of WordPress and came away understanding the way it works. I feel equipped with the information to secure certain key elements of my future site and aware of what to look out for. They covered SEO, security, Ecommerce as well as design and front end stuff. Belsien was a very knowledgeable leader with important back-up support provided by Noel and Natalie. I'd recommend this to anyone with a basic understanding of how computers work. If you're a computer newbie, take care of that. On the flip side, if you're already a programmer, this may be too basic for you.

Hi Stephanie, at this point we researched it and there isn't an official WordPress certification system in place. But you can probably put on your resume: "completed the SoCal WordPress WordPress intensive workshop."
Perhaps we can give you guys an offline / after class quiz that will give you a "grade." We'll think about it.

A location Westside of LA where free or meter parking is more friendly than downtown is a plus. The Yahoo community center is free with room for 65-67 people. They also have tables so people can write or do notes on computer & other device. To help find must post location is across from Helen's Cycles since some have trouble locating 2500 Broadway, Santa Monica. HBO sign is right in front of meeting room. Location is roughly 1/3 mile from 10 Freeway 26th street offramp/onramp.

Would this be basic WP training then? Or will it cover intermediate topics as well?
