Standard & Advanced SEO Training Classes
Learn from Bruce Clay in two distinct search engine optimization training courses. Choose our 3-day Standard training to cover all the latest advances. Add on the 1.5-day Advanced SEO training course if you want to go deeper into technical SEO and the tools as well as be able to earn your certification.
You can take both SEO classes in one week at our Southern California location. Each class offers a unique education, but they're meant to be taken in sequence; the Standard course is a prerequisite for the Advanced training and SEOToolSet Certification test.
About the Standard Course
The Standard SEO Training course is packed full of fundamental SEO, technical information, and tried and true methodologies — plus an introduction to other web marketing disciplines and how they play into SEO. This course works well for marketing, web and IT personnel, site owners and managers, and anyone responsible for organic traffic.
Plus, our SEO classroom training teaches you how to use the tools you’ll need to run your website strategy.
With your registration, you get a 12-month subscription to the SEOToolSetTM — our proprietary SaaS tools that empower your SEO. And during your time with us, you’ll learn how to use our tools!
The SEOToolSet offers unique data necessary for SEOs. A subscription to the tools normally includes one website project, unlimited users and pay-as-you-go options for additional website projects, link monitoring, and keyword ranking monitoring.
But as a bonus for taking Bruce Clay's Standard SEO Training course, the SEOToolSet is yours for a full year — for up to three website projects! And if you also take the Advanced SEO course, your SEOToolSet subscription is good for up to five website projects, adding substantial value to your course fees.
Cost for Standard Training course: $1,795*
*See our Training Prices page for special offers.
About the Advanced SEO Training Course
Our Advanced search engine optimization training leading to optional certification is for those who want a more complex look into the practice and technical “back end” of SEO, and who plan on being “power users” of our SEO tools. Advanced SEO Training is also the prerequisite for those who wish to become an SEOToolSet Certified Analyst (upon passing a test after classroom SEO training).
The road to SEO certification is comprised of two SEO classes, starting with the Standard course and continuing with the Advanced training. You may take them in succession during the same week or up to six months apart.
Certification offers you the right to display a certification seal on your website and other marketing materials; this is an industry-recognized standard of excellence and commitment to white hat SEO practices.
Cost for Advanced training course: $1,195*
*Special discounts can apply; see our Training Prices page for details.
Perks for Attendees at Bruce Clay SEO Training Classes
Attendees at our Southern California classes receive:
- An interactive, in-person classroom environment where questions are encouraged
- Opportunities for networking directly with the instructors and other attendees
- Lunch provided daily (except Friday) and refreshments
- A full-color manual containing slides and materials from the course
- A one-year subscription to the SEOToolSet, our proprietary tools and reports for SEOs
Both search engine optimization training courses are taught in the same week, so many students find it cost-effective for travel expenses to take advantage of the full-week classroom SEO training.
However, for those who are local, taking the Advanced SEO training and SEO certification at least a month after the Standard course allows time for the tactics learned in our SEO classroom to be applied, giving added perspective.
Cost for both Standard and Advanced SEO classes together: $2,990 USD
