    Hi Sean and Nazeem, Many thanks for your great one on one tutoring in my home in Cape Town. I was able to go at my own speed as I already had some prior experience with Joomla! and many doorways were opened during the training including some tricks of the trade. I will certainly use Learn Joomla and do the advanced template customization course once I've done a bit of php to get me up to speed. Many thanks.
