FAQ

 

Our Freelancer Bootcamp teaches you the skills to become a kick ass, highly skilled, highly paid, freelance web developer. We take you from ‘what the heck is HTML’ to launching your first website and working with clients. The course has 10 modules, and over 130 lessons which teach you everything you need to create and launch your first high-spec website.

 

You can sign up today for our Early Bird discount, and the course officially kicks off on November 7th. You can start the coursework right away, and work through the coursework in your own time.

You will need a laptop or desktop computer running Windows, MacOS or Linux. A tablet, phone or netbook will not enable you to complete all the tasks on the course.

On the course you will build your own personal portfolio or client website. There are costs associated with building a site which are not covered in the course fee – as these are variable costs depending on what you build. The costs should be billed to your client if you are building a client website, you can advise your client of this before they agree.

  1. Domain cost: You will need to buy a domain name. These cost anything from €0.99 per year, the cost really just depends on how in-demand the domain name is. To estimate this cost, go to godaddy.com and search for some domain names you are considering for your site (stephwebdesign.com etc).
  2. Hosting cost: Websites need to be hosted, and there is an annual fee for this. We recommend two options of hosting in the coursework, which we have vetted. These are Hostinger which is €29 per year, and Siteground which is €79 per year.
  3. Theme: You may opt to buy a theme on the course. This cost is optional, and you will be given free and paid options to choose from which we have checked and vetted. If you buy a theme, the cost is between 29 and €60. This is a lifetime cost, not an annual cost.

If you are working with a client, you can let them know in advance that they would need to pay for these costs. You may also choose to charge your client for completing their website on the course. If so, the normal amount would be €500 on the course – payable when the website is delivered at the end of the course.

I am very please to say that both the Freelancer and Entrepreneur courses are now accredited by the CPD Certification service. You can view the membership details and certification details in the gallery at the top of the page.

When you complete the course, you will be sent a certificate of completion directly from CPD with your name & optionally your company name in it. If you will be using your web design skills to work for your company, it’s possible that your company will pay in full or part for your place on the course.

You have two options for the website you will create on the course.

  • You can create a personal website, to advertise your freelance development skills to potential clients. If you have other skills & experience you can market these on the website too.
  • You can create a website for a client. Some previous students posted on their social media looking for clients, and others created websites for their partner or family members businesses.

If you create a website for yourself, you will be able to use that as a way to market yourself. If you create a website for a client, you will gain experience of working with a client which will be very helpful.

The course is designed to give you a fast track to the knowledge and skills you need to build and launch a professional WordPress website and use it create revenue and promote your business:
  • The course will teach you how to build self-hosted WordPress websites from scratch.
  • It will teach you how to find clients, pitch for work, gather client requirements, and set your pricing.
  • You will be given a basic introduction to four key web development languages: HTML, CSS, JavaScript & PHP and how these can be used to customise your website.
