The DCO offers the most comprehensive Drupal 9 & 10 live training curriculum available, presented through engaging, live, online sessions twice a week for 12 weeks.

I was surprised by how much I learned during this course before we even touched any code! I came into the course with no knowledge of Drupal, and now I feel like I have a firm understanding of how to build and maintain a site from conception to completion.
