Course Description

Build beautiful and dynamic websites without the need for coding. Our simple tutorials and videos will guide you though the whole process and when you graduate you will have a fully functional website for you or your business.

It’s been a long dream for PODTech to create a WordPress course and make web building accessible for everyone. For this course we use the basic free version of Elementor with its simple drag and drop features combined with our much loved theme, OceanWP. 

Together we will build a mockup scuba diving website and finally build your very own website using 2 key principles:

  1. Web Design – taking shapes, images, font type and colour and making something visually interesting
  2. User Experience – how to take ideas and make your designs work in a web browser

Along our journey together we will cover:

Our goal here is to teach you to build your very own website and maintain it into the future without having to pay thousands to hire a developer.

Who is this course for?

Complete Beginner

No knowledge of coding required. This course is perfect for complete beginners who have no graphic design experience and have never built a website before.

Taking the Step from Wix to WordPress

This course is ideal for those wanting to take their website to the next level. If you are thinking of transitioning from clunky web building tools like Wix, Squarespace or Shopify to a professional, industry standard like WordPress. This course will support you achieving your goals.

Graphic Designer but Never Built a Website

Perhaps you are a graphic designer who has designed websites and sent the designs off to a developer and are now looking to keep your web building in-house. This course can help your business grow and take on bigger projects.


This course is great to follow through and learn new skills to add to your CV.

Here's What Past Students Had to Say:

"I had a small amount of knowledge about websites but since working with Simon, I now feel confident to manage my website and make changes because he spent the time to teach me and listen to what I needed."
