* Create and Promote Your Brand: Tuesday, Oct. 1 and Thursday, Oct. 3, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., $70.

More than 17 percent of all websites in the world are powered by WordPress, and with its quick setup, ease of use, and growing community it’s truly a platform everyone can benefit from.

* Become a Salesforce Developer: Tuesdays and Thursdays, Oct. 1 – Dec. 10, 6 to 9 p.m., $3,995: This hands-on course takes Salesforce administrators from defense to offense in taking care of the needs of their users and organizations. You will learn when to (and when not to) extend the “click and configure” capabilities of the platform. You’ll understand custom Apex and Visualforce development techniques that quickly and effectively create the custom solutions your customers need. By the end of this course, you’ll have a more powerful set of implementation skills and be ready to provide the technical and strategic guidance necessary to handle almost any business request with
