Search Engine Workshops looks back at 5 years of sem seo training

When it comes to sem seo certification and training you have admire the longevity of Search Engine Workshops. They’ve been around for 5 years this January and that says a lot. I don’t endorse any sem seo training programs on this blog because I’ve only completed one program back in 2000 and I want to maintain my neutrality (this is an ad free blog).  With that being said you should take a look at this program if you are looking for sem seo training then decide for yourself.

This January 2007 benchmarks 5 years in business of conducting private “hands-on” SEO skill building classes to small groups of students from all over the world. We have taught small groups of students from across the US and Canada. Plus many have traveled to study at the Workshop from countries as far away as Belgium, London, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Israel, Asia, South Africa, India, Australia, Brazil, Mexico as well as many other places.

The program offers 3 different options depending on your level of skills. A 2 day beginners’ workshop, a 3 day advanced workshop or a 5 day all encompassing workshop as well as an Ultimate SEO Mastery Workshop. To top it off each of the workshops includes a 6 month mentoring program.

The 6 month mentoring program is deliverable to each student AFTER they have successfully completed the workshop and once they have successfully passed their certification exam. Mentoring is personally delivered by either John Alexander or else by Robin Nobles, limited to one hour per month, for a total of six hours. You can use all of your hours in one month if you choose, or space them out over the six-month period. All mentoring hours are pre-scheduled ahead of time based on a mutually convenient time and can include support by phone calls, e-mail, running reports, visiting Web sites, etc. We’ll keep track of the hours and let you know when you’ve reached the total of six hours.

The success of Search Engine Workshops is evident by the number of certificates listed on websites and  “franchising” in the form of the Search Engine Academy.
