Learn the basics of Joomla 3 for FREE!

Over 20,000 people have taken this course

This is the original getting started with Joomla course that has been online since 2008. Now fully updated for Joomla 3, this course has been watched by tens of thousands of students worldwide. But the best part is that all 16 lessons and the 100 page accompanying workbook are free!

So if you're looking how to get started with Joomla 3 quickly and easily, you're in the right place. Just because it's free doesn't mean that you get a cut-down down version of another course. Yes, I do have some advanced courses, but this comprehensive beginner course teaches you all the essential Joomla concepts so you can get your first website built in record time.

I started building websites in 1995 and when content management systems came along, I hated them. The designs were awful, you were forced to change the way you worked and the documentation was woeful. Even simple things like creating a page made no sense. The problem is that most people try to learn by watching a couple of videos and reading a few tutorials. That's what I did which only led to frustration.

Learning Joomla is a bit like building a brick wall. Many beginners have a basic foundation - they understand the essentials of websites. Then they start piling on a few bricks here and there. But as their wall of knowledge is constructed, it's full of holes. Eventually they hit a point where their wall can't sustain any more weight and it collapses. What a waste of time!

Step by step approach

This course takes a step-by-step approach to building Joomla websites. Each lesson builds upon the previous one, so your wall is solid. So whether you're looking to save money by building your own website, or if you're an existing web developer needing to learn Joomla, you are in the right place. Join the thousands of students who have taken this course by enrolling today.

Remember that a comprehensive workbook with loads of screenshots is included to save you time.

    “I have always been the type of person to try something and then learn how to do it. I have tried Joomla before without great success. The Joomla 3 - the Basics is a great resource to use. Through reading the workbook, watching the videos I have established a firm basis to expand my knowledge and it was free. Going on to do the full course now. Thanks Ian Clare”

    I have been working with computers since way back in 1983. As a teenager, I discovered I had an ability to explain things simply and although it took some time, I eventually incorporated this skill into my work. My web development career started in 1995 and I started teaching online in 2008. These days I love producing online courses that are easy to understand and produce fast results. You'll usually find me staring at some sort of screen, but when I escape, I'm either juggling four kids or taking a hike through the beautiful bushland that surrounds my hometown of Sydney, Australia.
