So if you’re looking how to get started with Joomla 3 quickly and easily, you’re in the right place. Just because it’s free doesn’t mean that you get a cut-down down version of another course. Yes, I do have some advanced courses, but this comprehensive beginner course teaches you all the essential Joomla concepts so you can get your first website built in record time.

I started building websites in 1995 and when content management systems came along, I hated them. The designs were awful, you were forced to change the way you worked and the documentation was woeful. Even simple things like creating a page made no sense. The problem is that most people try to learn by watching a couple of videos and reading a few tutorials. That’s what I did which only led to frustration.

Learning Joomla is a bit like building a brick wall. Many beginners have a basic foundation – they understand the essentials of websites. Then they start piling on a few bricks here and there. But as their wall of knowledge is constructed, it’s full of holes. Eventually they hit a point where their wall can’t sustain any more weight and it collapses. What a waste of time!

Step by step approach

This course takes a step-by-step approach to building Joomla websites. Each lesson builds upon the previous one, so your wall is solid. So whether you’re looking to save money by building your own website, or if you’re an existing web developer needing to learn Joomla, you are in the right place. Join the thousands of students who have taken this course by enrolling today.

Remember that a comprehensive workbook with loads of screenshots is included to save you time. 

About Instructor

Richard Pearce

There's something about 3s. I was introduced to computers in 1983, got on the Internet in 1993, was married in 2003, welcomed my last child into the world in 2013 and I can't wait to see what happens in 2023! My 3 keys to success with online learning are: 1) set a weekly time to learn and implement, 2) if you can't work out something yourself in 10 minutes, ask for help, 3) take small but consistent steps.
