Training

We strive to provide at least one training session every month. Sessions range in length from 2 to 8 hours. The longer training sessions are split into two days.

In the past we have offered the following training options:

Complete beginner

- Drupal 7 Crash Course - 2 hours, designed to introduce the basic functionality of Drupal 7 and allow the participant to make an educated decision if Drupal is the right choice for their project.

- Drupal 7 on UKIT managed infrastructure - 2 hours, learn to use Drupal 7 in a managed environment supported with UKIT. Covers Drupal core and the approved contributed modules that come with a standard install.

Beginner / Intermediate

- Drupal 7 in a day - 3 hours, more in depth than the crash course, designed to allow the student to step out of class and have enough knowledge to develop a basic Drupal web site.

- Drupal 7 in two days - 6 or 8 hours, even more coverage than the previous three options, with a survey of Drupal core functionality and a selection of key contributed modules, designed to prepare the participants to develop a more advanced CMS.

Intermediate / Advanced

- Drupal 7 : Learn to build your site by destroying ours - 3 hours, intermediate / advanced level - unlike other classes, in this one we start with a clone of a fully functional college-level site and learn how to administer it and modify it

We are developing the following advanced options to be offered in the future:

- Drupal 7 Theming - 3 hours, intermediate / advanced level - designed for a Drupal site administrator who is familiar with the system and wants to develop a custom theme or modify an existing one

- Drupal 7: Views - 3 hours, advanced level - learn to harness the true power of Drupal by using Views and Node Reference modules - build custom lists of your content, create relationships between different pieces of content, customize the delivery of your content to the readers.
