Free CMS Training at Webstix

Webstix, Inc. offers monthly Content Management System (CMS) training classes at our office on Madison’s east side. Below is the schedule. Please check back here before attending in case there are changes. You must register if you are going to attend a class. If there are no participants for a class, it will be canceled.

WordPress and Joomla CMS Training Classes

Taking notes during training

The CMS training class session agenda is:

  • (5 minutes) Introduction
  • (50 minutes) Basic page and menu editing.
  • (35 minutes) Answer any questions or do specific training
  • End after 1 hour and 30 minutes.

This is open to our clients and to the public. The classes are free of charge. You can come to find out more about WordPress, to get a refresher course (or send in new people if you’ve hired new employees), to brush up on your web/CMS skills or to ask specific questions about your Content Management System website.

WordPress Training Schedule / Upcoming Classes

We alternate between WordPress and Joomla, where one month will be about Joomla and the next two months will be training in WordPress. The only Joomla training that we’re doing is on the 3.x version.

These classes are in our office, not online. You will need to come to our office to attend this training. There’s a conference room we have reserved.

You must RSVP (register) for classes using the form below.
If there are no attendees registering for a class (24 hours before the class), the class will be canceled.
