This course offers a course fee subsidy through funding from the Tertiary Education Commission (TEC) for NZ citizen and permanent migrant adults, and young people aged 16+ who are not currently enrolled in a NZ secondary school.

A condition of accepting this course fee subsidy is that you will attend the whole day.
During the workshop, David will explain the basic consoles and how to connect them to your website, as well as basic navigation and reporting. The class will use a live practice website as an illustrative class example. During the course, you will create a Google account and connect the main tools and consoles up to the practice website. You'll navigate around each of these tools and consoles and talk about basic reporting you can set up in each.
