WordCamp Organizer Training

WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences that focus on everything WordPress. Each WordCamp is different, reflecting the local WordPress community it represents, but usually a wide range of people from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other.

This course is required training for all new WordCamp lead organizers, as well as being useful for anyone wanting to know more about how WordCamps work. It contains quizzes you may use to test your knowledge of various aspects of WordCamp.

The primary source of information for the questions in this course is the WordCamp Organizer Handbook, as such this course does not contain any content on its own – all questions will be based on the information in the handbook.
