Joomla training videos from OSTraining[edit]

OS Training provides online training to teach people how to build websites. For Joomla, they developed free classes on five topics: a beginners guide, maintenance, security, creating multilingual sites, and SEO. Each class contains multiple videos. With over 80 videos suitable for various skill levels, the official Joomla training covers most of the tasks you could possibly want to do with Joomla. The videos have been there for quite some time now and some of them may seem outdated, but the basics have remained the same so these tutorials are still a useful resource.

Joomla User Groups around the world hold a range of events locally and internationally. Check out the Joomla Events Calendar for events that are coming up near you, or follow various groups to find out more about resources they may publish after the event.


Extension developers often have tutorial videos on their website as well. Akeeba, the developer of Akeeba Backup and Admin Tools, has great videos on how to use their extensions.

These are just a few of the tutorial videos available. If you type in “Joomla training” on YouTube, you’ll find there are many more to choose from, for all levels: beginner tutorials, developers guides, one-time explanations on how to fix certain errors, and complete crash courses.
