About Us

Web Design Training Services was formed in 2008 by David Partis, developing out of a passion in training that David identified in his previous career at Hewlett Packard managing the HP Education department for a number of years.

It was on the starting up of Designhand that David realised he had the opportunity to fulfil his passion for training.

The Founder – David Partis

David PartisDavid originally started Designhand Limited in late 2005 out of a requirement to market a holiday home on the internet. After completing several international Web training courses David moved out of the corporate IT world to start his business.

The holiday house web-site Whitechapel Cottage was David’s first web-site and ironically David uses the original Whitechapel web-site in his first few courses.

David’s talents and interest in training have evolved over 20 years in the IT industry including servicing, mentoring and training roles.

David also teaches community education classes at Massey High School, Rutherford High School, Selwyn College, Edgewater College and Northcote Colleges in Auckland and through the REAP (Rural Education Activities Programme) in Taumarunui, Taupo and Taihape.
