Custom editor training

We can customise training documentation to suit your Drupal site. Instead of learning from a generic site, we teach you how to use your site. We generally take 2 to 5 days to put together a package that covers the basic content editing and administration of the site.

The quantity and quality of documentation will depend on existing documentation, access to resources who understand how the site has been built, and the quality of the site build.

Your custom training will be available as an online resource using Any trainee will have access to download a PDF version of the documentation once the training has been completed.
