Six Mile Tech

Six Mile Tech specializes in Drupal training. Drupal is a free, community-built website development tool. It allows you to easily create, update and manage a website without coding. Drupal uses a point-and-click interface to let you add pages, menus, images and file uploads and it enforces security, so you can apply permissions to different kinds of users. As your website grows, it's easy to add custom features from the thousands of free modules you can download. Drupal is highly regarded as one of the best website frameworks available and is rapidly gaining adoption all over the globe.

Our unique training programs utilize practical, hands-on exercises and have a low instructor to student ratio to ensure personal attention and guidance in developing Drupal sites.
