Make a Living as a WordPress Professional
From WordPress fundamentals to professional practice.
By now you have likely heard the oft quoted stats that WordPress powers more than 20% of sites on the Internet. Demand for experienced and qualified WordPress professionals is extremely high, and it is on the rise.
There is a shortage of high-quality WordPress developers.
Right now there are jobs going unfilled because there are not enough people to complete them. Agencies are struggling to find new talent. Clients are struggling to find actually qualified providers.
Professional WordPress Training
What started as simple tutorials on WordPress design and development has grown to so much more. When I launched WPSessions, I had no idea there was such a hunger for higher caliber WordPress education and resources.
While the first few live sessions answered a lot of introductory-level questions, there remained a huge educational gap in the industry. Sure, there is a lot of information scattered all across the internet, but that’s also the problem – it’s scattered. I had to learn everything the hard way, jumping from blog post to blog post, trying to find information that was both current and correct.
I don’t want it to be like that for you.
Clients Want WordPress Sites
Today, more and more clients are seeking professional and easy-to-use websites, and WordPress is their solution.
Not only is this becoming more sought after in small businesses and non-profits, WordPress is resonating with a large audience. From Fortune 100 companies, to government sites, to higher education, to performers, and all the way down to the one-man businesses – everyone is seeking WordPress as their platform. More importantly, everyone is seeking skilled and qualified professionals to help develop that platform for them.
There’s never been a better time to learn the fundamentals (and some incredible time-saving tips) than right now.
No Shortage of Work…
Personally, I have to turn away so many well-paying jobs because I simply don’t have enough time to complete them all myself. I can’t even send them away with a referral because all (literally 100%) of the developers I know and trust are overbooked, too!
Starting now I’m going to change that for good. I’m putting out a multi-part curriculum to help train as many people as possible to produce quality WordPress powered websites.
“WPSessions has a simple focus – to educate you by bringing incredible talent together to focus on specific topics you need to know. They could charge much, much more, but their focus isn’t on money as much as it is education. Check it out now!”
– Chris Lema, Educator
WordPress Video Tutorials
Each course in this module contains multiple, exhaustive video lessons along with articles, resources and quizzes, all helping you understand the finer points of building a WordPress website from concept to completion. Each of these courses below feature a different piece of the website lifecycle.
The hobbyist will get a great overview of WordPress fundamentals in the introductory course.
For the designer looking to add a new skill set to your toolkit, you’ll find several lessons that introduce basic development concepts that will take your work to the next level.
No, this particular module will not make you an expert in each of these programming languages (nor does it attempt to teach them to you), but it will provide you with a strong working foundation as you set fourth to become a developer in earnest (if that’s your goal).
“WPSessions is perfect. I don’t want to learn something twice, I want to learn it right the first time.”

Left an unfulfilling job for a life-changing experience.
“At the risk of sounding cliche, learning to build websites with WordPress changed my life. Faster than I thought possible, I went from a part time job I was unhappy with to freelancing full time and earning enough to allow my wife to leave her full time job and be a stay at home mom. Aside from being able to work flexible hours from any location, my favorite part of the job is providing useful solutions for real people and businesses, knowing I’ve had a hand in their success. There’s no faster or better way to learn than from someone who has ‘been there, done that’ and can light the path for you.”
— Jarrod Pyper, Web Developer
“Not only have I gotten good information from the sessions, I am given a boost of energy and creativity. I work from home and appreciate this chance to participate and interact in a live group of equally interested WP enthusiasts.”
