The Bay Area Search Engine Academy has opened registration for their upcoming SEO classes and internet marketing training for businesses. Registration is limited to fifteen people in each of the classes being held in San Ramon and Santa Clara (near San Jose), California.
"We keep the classes small so each of the students gets lots of individual attention during the course of the week," Thomas Petty said. Petty is the President of the Bay Area Search Engine Academy, and will be teaching both hands-on workshops. "We teach a lot of advanced techniques, but anyone can learn them. We want to make sure everyone understands it so they can put it to use as soon as they leave the classroom."
The Academy starts the week by teaching a six-step process that gets its students started quickly without having to know technical code. "Anyone can learn our six-step process and get results," Petty adds. The rest of the week is spent learning techniques that can get a business listed on the search engines many different ways.
Each student is encouraged to bring their wireless-enabled laptop and work on either their own Web site or their client's in the class. They are each given class time to present problems to the other students, get constructive feedback, and help each other.
"Some of the terms people hear are 'SEO', 'social media marketing', 'internet marketing', and so on. We dispel the myths around all of this, and make it clear so business owners can get results with what we teach," Petty said. "After all, we use these same techniques with our own clients."
The Bay Area Search Engine Academy is part of the larger Search Engine Academy, started by John Alexander and Robin Nobles many years ago. They teach a standardized curriculum at all their academies around the world.
Once a student has completed the workshop and passed the exam, they receive a certificate showing they have have a thorough understanding in search engine marketing. In addition, students can request nationally-recognized continuing education units (CEUs) through the University of Southern Mississippi (an additional $60 fee covers the cost of the paperwork).
Interested students can register online at the Bay Area Search Engine Academy's registration page or contact them directly toll-free at (888) 807-5658.
