Oakland, CA (PRWEB) September 09, 2011 – The Bay Area Search Engine Academy, an SEO training academy has announced that there are still openings available in their September and October 2011 workshop schedule. Registration is limited to fifteen people in each of the classes, which will be held in Oakland, California.

Thomas Petty, President of the Bay Area Search Engine Academy said, “We keep the classes small so each of the students gets lots of individual attention during the course of the week so they can practice their internet marketing skills.”

Each student is asked to bring a wireless-enabled laptop and work on either their own website 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 on solving common SEO problems.

The Academy starts the week by teaching an easy six-step process that gets its students ramped up quickly without having to know technical code.

“Anyone can learn our six-step process and get good SEO results,” Petty adds. The rest of the week is spent learning more advanced techniques that can get a business listed on the search engines many different ways.

“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 learn to use a repeatable process that gets results,” Petty said. “After all, we use these same techniques with our own clients.”

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. Graduates of the Master-level workshop receive six months of mentoring and support after the course ends.

Petty said, “The follow-up mentoring for Master SEO students is probably one of the most valuable parts of the program, because we cover so much material in one week. This gives students additional support after they leave the classroom.”

Business owners, web designers or employees in charge of marketing can register online at the Bay Area Search Engine Academy’s SEO class registration page or contact them directly toll-free at (888) 807-5658 to get more information.
