I am in the process of developing training materials on how to install, configure and use WordPress. I am currently moderating the Socrates theme support forum and many of the questions revolve around basic care and feeding of WordPress. Until I have my material ready I want to help people by directing them to an existing course that I have located. This will get them started for now. I had a link on this page to a good WordPress beginners course. I have taken the link down for now since it appears that their site has been hijacked by a Chinese website.
