Our Courses

Web Building for the Terrified (one-day course)


Basic knowledge of computers is necessary, and you must know how to save files.

You will need to prepare whatever text and images you want put into your site. These can be on any type of removable media - a CD, a flash drive (also known as a memory stick) or a floppy disk.

You must have a domain name (web address) and a web host (a company that provides storage for your web site) before you start the course. If you already have this, great; if not we can register your domain name and host your site for you.

Course Schedule:

  • Select a site design
  • Add text and images to your page, using a simple programme that you will take away with you
  • Customise the appearance of your page
  • Add links to other pages, and to other websites
  • Make your page Google-friendly
  • Save your pages
  • Create new pages
  • Upload the pages and images to your web space
  • Make changes to your pages and replace the files on your site with fresh files
  • Choose and create e-mail addresses so that your visitors can contact you

Website Maintenance (half-day course)

This course is aimed at people who have already created their own web page/s, or who already have a website which they wish to maintain themselves.

We will work with html files that you have transferred to portable media, and you will learn how to optimise these pages for search engines, upload them to your web space, make changes to your pages, and create e-mail addresses. Let us know your requirements, and we will be happy to tailor the course to your needs.

If you do not own a domain name or if you do not have a web host, we will provide you with instructions for these prerequisites.
