Drupal Global Training Days is an exciting initiative from the Drupal Association to introduce new and beginning users to Drupal. The Association partners with companies and local Drupal community groups around the world to make newcomers to the Drupal community feel inspired and empowered to start great work.
Once a quarter, free or low-cost training events take place around the globe with a single, but flexible, curriculum. It's also a great opportunity for companies to showcase their Drupal services and the impact they've had in their local communities. The next Global Training Days are Friday, September 9 and Saturday, September 10.
Dates in 2016 (all are Friday-Saturday)
- February 5 - 6, 2016
- April 8 - 9, 2016
- September 9 - 10, 2016
- December 2 - 3, 2016
One day, or two.
Help grow the community you love.
Each training day is its own workshop. Attendees get helpful information for evaluating Drupal as a framework and as a career path. They also learn enough of the basics to leave a workshop having successfully built a Drupal site.

Need Help Building a Curriculum?
The ideal workshop is designed for people who are just getting started with Drupal and would love face-to-face advice from community-leading experts. But each training host can make their training their own. The Drupal Association can help make sure each training is a success. Email us to find out how.
