Best Free WordPress Courses for Every Beginner

WordPress Courses

There’s no doubt that WordPress has a huge learning curve. And if you do not have experience working with code you might find yourself in need of a developer, or perhaps you just want a developer to maintain your site, which is where Zen WP comes into play. But regardless of one’s level of expertise, everyone needs a solid and basic understanding of WordPress.

Naturally, taking some WordPress courses would be the best answer, but as with anything, the free ones tend to be of much lower quality. That is not to say that all free WordPress courses are terrible. There are certainly some gems out there if you look hard enough.

Fortunately for you, we’ve already done all of the work and put together a list of the best WordPress courses out there. These courses are 100% free and are, dare I say, better than most paid courses.

2. Udemy

Udemy WordPress Courses

Udemy is a course marketplace, meaning that you should generally expect to pay. But what many do not know is that there are over 100 free WordPress courses on their website.

Granted, most of the independent providers have another motive and that is to drive traffic to an affiliate or their service, but their community rating system helps you filter out the bad ones from the truly great courses.

3. General Assembly

General Assembly WordPress Courses

General Assembly is an educational organization with a number of physical locations around the country. Though they rarely have free courses available, there is a gem on their website that many do not notice.

They have a handful of online courses, one of the being a WordPress course, and though it is a paid course, there is a 14-day free trial, which is plenty of time to go through the course for someone that is just getting started with WordPress.

4. Treehouse

Treehouse WordPress Courses

Treehouse is another paid option but whose seven-day free trial you can use to learn everything WordPress. Instead of General Assembly, where there is only one lengthy course with a very rigid structure, Treehouse offers a number of courses that you can access and use at your will.

This is a great option if you have a little bit of technical knowledge and want to explore particular parts of WordPress use and development after going through some of the more basic courses.
