Robust Curriculum to Train the Trainers

We designed a robust curriculum designed to enable a new Drupal content author to be self-sufficient after being trained using the ZenSource Lotus Administration—our foundational open source Drupal authoring environment.

Each instructor is ZenSource Trainer Certified with advanced Drupal knowledge, as well as the communication skills needed to effectively train content authors of any skill level. Upon completing the course, each attendee will receive a ZenSource Advanced Drupal Author Training certificate and will be able to apply their skills to train other authors.


Hands-On Training with your Real Content

Training is conducted through a combination of instructor-led direction, as well as workshops specific to your environment and site implementation.

These hands-on workshops are conducted in small groups and one-on-one sessions that cover the full spectrum of content authoring responsibilities for each piece of website CMS functionality.


Drupal Admin Experience Testing and Optimization

In addition to author training, our client success team will also deep dive into your Drupal admin - testing to make sure that all of its features are rock solid for all of your requirements and real world content author use cases. 

As part of this effort, we'll also provide recommendations to your developers and UX leads for how to streamline the admin for authors and make creating content as easy as possible. 


Developer Training

We also offer developer training to help onboard your in-house development and IT teams so they are able to maintain and develop on ZenSource. Since ZenSource is built on Drupal and is 100% open source, our developer training dives deep into how to install, maintain and enhance your site on top of our Drupal Distribution.

We cover everything from system requirements, environment set up and project install all the way to layouts, theming and module development. Our hands-on developer training is designed to jumpstart and onboard developers of any level of Drupal experience—whether you’re already a Drupal developer or just learning if for the first time.
