Frequently Asked Questions

Not at all. In this course we will assume that you have never written a single line of code in your life. All you need to know is how to use a computer and an internet browser.

No. But you should if you are considering a career as a professional web designer.

Learning even a little HTML and CSS will allow you to fine-tune or customize just about every aspect of your site. You will not need to compromise on your vision or design when you come across a limitation with WordPress, your theme or a plugin. Build your own landing pages, change fonts and colours, add or remove elements, create animations or modify any CSS rule that you are not happy with.

WordPress is completely free and open-source and is published under the GNU General Public License (or GPL), which means it is free not only to download but to edit, customize, and use in any way you wish.

No. This course is not accredited.
