What Our Students Think

“Firstly I just wanted to thank you for a very enjoyable course – I have learnt loads and still have so much more to explore in the many resource documents that you provided.”

“I was a student learning WordPress with Andrew. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about the topic and taught me far more then just an "introduction" to the website development platform. I have now gone on to develop an IT company's website. I will attend further seminars that Andrew carries out and he set up a Facebook group whereby students can go to for extra help when they are stuck. This will be a great tool in the future.”
