Livermore, California (EastBayDaily) — The Bay Area Search Engine Academy, a California training academy that teaches internet marketing and search engine optimization training classes in the San Francisco Bay Area, has opened registration for their next hands-on workshop. The class will be held during the week of June 20, 2011 at the RT Fisher Educational Enterprises, Inc. facility near Jack London Square in Oakland, California.
Thomas Petty, President of the Bay Area Search Engine Academy, said, “The search engines change their rules all the time. We’re constantly updating the material for our classes so students can learn the latest techniques for getting their websites onto the search engines.”
The workshop is a hands-on class where students are encouraged to bring a wireless-enabled laptop to work on their own websites in the classroom. Because the classes are kept very small, each student gets individual attention from the instructors.
Petty said, “These aren’t large seminar type events. We want each person to get plenty of time to get their specific questions answered and problems addressed.”
The workshops are designed for business owners and entrepreneurs who have only the basic understanding of the web. The Master-level workshop is five days long, and includes search engine optimization, paid placement strategies, social media and blogging techniques. Students who sign up for the Master workshop also receive six months of mentoring from Petty after the course has finished.
“Whenever you walk away from a class, there are always questions when you start to implement what you learned. We cover that with a further six months of personal mentoring to make sure the SEO knowledge sticks,” Petty said.
The Bay Area Search Engine Academy also offers employees of companies seeking training credit with college-level continuing education units (CEUs), but they must be requested ahead of time.
Those wishing to register for the workshop should do so through the company website at http://www.bayareasearchengineacademy.org or contact them toll-free at 888-807-5658.
