A lot of WordCamps and WordPress meetup groups hold beginner workshops. Unfortunately, most of these aren’t recorded.

In this article, we will share free WordPress training videos that cover all the topics discussed in a WordPress beginner workshop.

WordPress Workshop

A WordPress beginner workshop aims to help new users get started. The topics discussed are:

They also talk about using WordPress (creating posts, adding pages, embedding images and videos, changing the template, adding widgets, customizing menus, installing plugins, and many other tips and tricks).

We have covered all these topics in our free WordPress training videos, including step-by-step video tutorials and complete courses.

Let’s take a look at some of our most helpful WordPress tutorials:

How to Attend a WordPress Beginner Workshop LIVE

The best way to attend a live WordPress beginner workshop in person is to find a WordCamp or a WordPress meetup group near you.

WordCamp is a non-profit conference that focuses on everything WordPress. There is a WordCamp held just about every week worldwide. You can see the full schedule to see if there is one in a location near you.

Alternatively, you can find a local WordPress meetup group in your area. Currently, there are more than 749 local WordPress meetup groups in 108 countries.

WordPress meetups website

Unlike WordCamps, WordPress meetup groups are smaller and allow beginners to interact and mingle with the WordPress experts in their area.

It’s important to note that not every WordCamp or WordPress meetup group holds beginner workshops. You should check the schedule to make sure it’s being offered.

If it isn’t, then you can always contact the organizers to see if they can offer a live beginner workshop. Most of the time, meetup and WordCamp organizers are very receptive to suggestions.

We hope that you found our WordPress training videos helpful replacements for WordPress beginner workshops. You should also check out our beginner’s guide on how to learn WordPress for free and our expert picks for the best free WordPress business themes.

    Kudos for tackling a common WordPress beginner issue – a lack of recorded workshops. Your free training videos, covering key topics, impressively simplify understanding. With 1000+ tutorials on your YouTube channel, attracting 23 million views, it’s a goldmine for all users. The inclusion of resources like the WordPress Dictionary and WPBeginner Engage Facebook group enriches learning. Your commitment to free content, community building, and live workshop guidance truly stands out. Keep making WordPress accessible for all!

    Thanks wpbeginner for this awesome guide on WordPress workshops and meet ups.
    I have always skipped these events and never been thinking it would be useless, but I was wrong about this.
    I will interact with WordPress meet ups which are held routinely every month.
    I had no idea about its usability and benefits.
    But now I have understood the importance of grouping with WordPress experts.

    Hello WP
    I don’t think I have ever attempted anything that is so confusing and overwhelming as trying to own a WP site. Even to get your training videos is a major in cryptic mazes and frustration at a level I have not experienced for many years.
    I think I will prob give up with WP and find an easier option that is clear and concise and more info and less words of confusion
    Sorry but it’s not for me

    I find your site just as frustrating as trying to figure out I am wondering if I made a mistake in switching over. I am unable to figure out the simplest things like how to transfer my site counter over to the .org address. I have no idea how to add widgets and other simple things. I’ve tried copying and pasting codes as tutorial say but…NOTHING happens.
