Here are some testimonials from some happy customers, to read another 95 happy reviews on Google click here.

Jamie is very knowledgeable about WordPress. While he must have delivered this training many many times, he still is interested and enthusiastic in sharing this knowledge. He quickly hears questions and varied expressions of ‘I’m lost just here’ and answers helpfully and informatively. It is easy to listen to his soft voice. He provides excellent follow up material. Now I need to see how I implement the ‘know how’ he has shared.

I attended an excellent half day introductory WordPress course online. The course was really well structured and paced and was very clear and practical. Jamie’s really knowledgeable and I came away feeling like I had a strong grasp of the basics. I’d recommend it highly.
