Getting a new website is the starting point, you then need to build and maintain it. Ecru's experienced trainers can help you learn how to maximise the value of your website and get the most from your online presence. From courses on how to use your content management system, to setting up and running forums, how to keep your website accessible to people with disabilities, writing for the web and search engine optimisation, we have a training course to help you meet the challenge.

Ecru's own easy to use content management system comes with training as standard, however many people find themselves using legacy content management systems that are far from straight forward. We can help, we have experience of using many different content management systems and can create an easy to use training manual and quick user guide for whatever content management system you use.

All our training packages are adapted to the needs of the audience, we make sure the content of our seminars are relevant to your needs and accessible to all.

Content management system training

Ecru's easy to use content management system comes with a bespoke user guide and individual training for users. Our content management system is so easy to use that we usually find a half an hour training session, in person or over the telephone is usually all it takes to learn how to use the system, and telephone or email support is always available to new users.
