WordPress Developer Course

Next Course: August 5th – August 30th

WordPress Advanced Developer CourseIn early 2012, I realized I had a passion for teaching others how to use WordPress. There were tons of resources available for beginners when it came to WordPress, but no great solution for developers who want to become more advanced.

As I have slowly learned WordPress myself, I saw a void in the market and decided to create my own course for developers. The course is called “WordPress Developers Course” and I’m confident that it will turn any WordPress novice into a great developer.

This course can be yours for the low one time payment of $999 only $699!

  • I put the the content of the course to use immediately on a project. I learned a lot of valuable information about how to use WordPress and it put me in a position to continue to explore WP as a tool for my business. Dustin over-delivers on content and the small community we now have will continue to be valuable.

  • I wasn’t to sure what to expect on Dustin’s Developer Course. I thought it might be too advanced for me. However, Dustin has a way of explaining complicated subjects in a way anybody can understand them. I feel much better equipped to run my freelance business. Plus, I’m glad I have lifetime access to the course materials so I can go over them anytime I need too.

Do I Have To Be There At Certain Times?

Another great thing about this course is that you can do everything at your own pace. At the beginning of each week, you’ll be given a course outline that will provide links to all the training materials that you should consume during the course of that week. You can go through these materials any time you like, night or day. As you go through them, if you have questions, all you need to do is simply ask your question in the online forum and I’ll personally respond to every question you ask during the four weeks of this course.

There will be a total of four conference calls. One each week of the course. The times of these calls are not set yet, as I’ll find a time that works best with the most amount of participants.

You are not required to participate in these live calls. The conference calls are held via GoToWebinar and I will be sharing my screen and creating video training/tutorial material on the fly as I answer questions from the class. If you are unable to make it to the class live, you can submit questions ahead of time for me to cover. I will be recording HD Video of these calls on my end and the videos will be made available for viewing and/or download by the following morning.

What If I Get Behind?

Life Happens! Right? It’s not a problem. This material is designed to be a self study course. If something happens and you get a week or two behind on the training materials, it’s not a problem. Those who sign up for this course are given LIFETIME ACCESS to all of the training materials made available in this course.

  • Taking this course has increased my WordPress developer skills. It was amazing what we could cover in 4 weeks time. This was all information that I needed to learn more about. I haven’t seen this level of WordPress course offered anywhere else. It really answered a lot of questions I’d been stuck on before taking the course. It was great to have the combination of demonstration videos and Dustin available for question and answer about the material.

  • The course was excellent. Dustin is a great teacher and put together a comprehensive course that goes far beyond the basics of developing websites with WordPress. The course has not only helped me build new skills but also provided a network for collaborating with other WordPress Developers. Most importantly, I go back to my business with more skills to bring to my clients making their sites better. I highly recommend this course for anyone using WordPress as a platform to build websites.

I Have More Questions

If you have any questions at all, please email me at Dustin@YourWebsiteEngineer.com


As an entrepreneur, I enjoy many parts of my business, including tweaking and adding features to my website. That is, until I can’t figure something out.

Recently, I worked with Dustin in a screen sharing environment, where I could show him exactly what issues I was facing. One of the issues was easy to fix and Dustin had taught me how to fix it in no time, but my other issue was a little bit more tricky.

As Dustin was troubleshooting the item, he continued to tell me what he was doing and the reason behind it. Those tiny pieces of information helped me learn how to troubleshoot my WordPress site more quickly. I appreciated the time that he took to teach me how to make the changes instead of doing the changes for me.

I highly recommend using Dustin as a resource as he will save you hours of headaches!
