Some of Our Teachers
Steve is the founder of OSTraining. Originally from the U.K., he now lives in Atlanta in the U.S.A.. He was a teacher for many years before starting Alledia.com, a web development firm. After several years of full-time web work, he found the desire to teach coming back again and started Open Source Training.
He now travels widely teaching people how to use Joomla, WordPress and Drupal. He has been heavily involved in various Open Source projects, writing books, starting user groups and serving as a board member.
Director of Online Training
Rod holds two masters degrees and has been training people how to do "things" for over 25 years. Originally from Australia, he grew up in Canada and now resides just outside Cincinnati, Ohio. He has worked in both the non-profit and for-profit worlds, in small companies and large corporations.
Rod's extensive open source experience includes WordPress, Joomla, Drupal and Moodle and he really knows how to help you get the most out of the system you chose. Rod plays ice hockey a couple of times a week and rides his Goldwing motorbike pretty much everywhere he can.
Prices and Availability
Our training sessions are $2500 per day plus travel costs for one OSTraining instructor.
We recommend that one instructor teach a maximum of 16 students.
We have enough teachers available that we can nearly always meet a training date that you request. However, if you can plan dates at least one month in advance, that will allow us to best meet your needs.
