Drupal 7 in a day training class
Get a solid introduction to Drupal 7 in an intensive one-day training class. Learn essential concepts, build rich functionality, and apply best-practices through hands-on exercises. You will build a new site from the ground up while learning the the key steps for creating and administering any Drupal site.

Planning roadmap and support
After the class, we’ll work with you to apply these concepts to your own projects. At a one-on-one planning session, we’ll model our proven process to combine your new technical skills with the planning, content and communication strategies for sustainable web management. With a project roadmap tailored specifically to your needs, you'll be prepared to dive right in. To keep the momentum rolling, you’ll have access access to weekly skill-building sessions where you can get help and share ideas.
