When I decided to make the jump from being a “web designer” to an “internet marketing consultant”, I was unsure about who to gain my certification in SEO from. I was concerned about spending my time and money with a school / educator who would not give me the required skills and credentials to really get my clients results. Many of the “schools” were online courses or required me to travel several hours away or just did not feel “right”. I require the “classroom” atmosphere to really learn and I wanted to be sure I was being taught by a school who really knew their stuff.
So, I found the search engine academy via [an online article that’s no longer available]. The author wrote that “So far, the Search Engine Academy is the only resource I’ve found that is actually certified through an educational institution, the University of Southern Mississippi. You can choose to earn 3.3 CEU’s for completing the comprehensive course.” This gave me enough reassurance to call Tom and ask him why I should take his course and not another. He was able to answer all of my questions and took the time to explain things thoroughly.
I arrived in Sacramento for the 5 day course and was very excited to find that Tom was a great teacher and really knew his material. It was also apparent that he was passionate about the subject of SEO, organic techniques and “best practices”. I felt the entire time that somehow I was getting way more than my money’s worth, and that somehow I had found that “mentor” that I needed to make the transition to SEO “expert”.
I highly recommend him to anyone considering SEO certification.
