Upping the frequency for Fundamentals
Starting from 2021, we’re going to offer 2x Fundamentals a month in the European timezone.
This will hopefully ensure you’re not met with a discouraging “SOLD OUT” now you’ve finally decided to start your Umbraco journey and it will also give you more flexibility in order to fit the training with your schedule.
We also know that a lot of Umbraco web agencies book this particular course for new employees as part of their onboarding program - with this new frequency, it should be easier to fit the Fundamentals course in with the onboarding process, making sure this is the first course they attend - it is, after all, the best place to start your Umbraco learning and the stepping stone to any of the other certification courses.
Can I book now?
Yes! The dates for all courses in the first quarter of 2021 are already online - and as a special treat, if you hurry, you can grab an exclusive 25% discount on all courses if you book before Monday, 30th of November, 16:00 CET.
Why is the Fundamentals course so popular?
Of all the sold training seats in 2020, 26% of them have been Fundamentals. Given that we offer 9 different courses, that’s quite a significant percentage!

The best place to start. Fact.
The Fundamentals teaches you… well, the fundamentals.
And that being the current fundamentals, meaning you get knowledge of the basic building blocks of Umbraco so you know how to build a website from scratch but you also get taught about the latest features and functionality.
Currently, the fundamentals touch upon these topics:
✅ Document types
✅ Building blocks + functionality
✅ Partial views
✅ Language Variants (how to create a multilingual site)
✅ The image cropper
✅ List views
✅ Umbraco Forms
✅ The Grid editor
✅ Nested content and the new block list editor
Flattening the learning curve
When you’re new, it can be hard to know where to start and where to go next. You can find a lot of helpful Umbraco material and documentation online, but when you’re new - this can be overwhelming.
One of the things we hear again and again from our attendees is that they enjoy how well-structured our courses are. And as for the Fundamentals course, it’s a hands-on course we have designed to ensure you leave with an overall understanding of how to use the CMS as well as get an insight into the opportunities you have to take things further.
Your first official Umbraco certification title!
On top of all that, completing the Fundamentals course gives you 100 certification points which automatically results in an official Umbraco certification title: Umbraco Certified Professional.
An official title to add to your CV, boast about on LinkedIn/Twitter or discreetly slide into the conversation around the office ;)
