With 20+ years of experience in search industry evolution and practice, we know how search works! Our SEO classes and optional SEO certification program are constantly updated with new topics and methodologies.

Classroom-style training: Our full U.S. course is 4.5 days, taught near our headquarters in Southern California. The continually updated lessons (with more than 440 slides!) address the changing face of SEO and digital marketing as a whole, yet always teach the white hat methodologies BCI is known for. This is what provides lasting value to a website strategy.

Classes include extensive question-and-answer discussions that assure the material is understood, plus the opportunity to talk with other students. This is search engine optimization training for every level of experience.

Our school also reaches internationally, as our global offices provide training worldwide.

Conference workshops: Bruce Clay is the classroom SEO training provider for major marketing conferences including Search Marketing Expo (SMX). These are 1-day ​workshops specially designed for conference attendees.

Custom onsite training: For larger clients looking to train key players in the company, such as the marketing and content departments, we can provide a 1- or 2-day training class at your selected facility for 24 or more students. This onsite classroom SEO training could be the ideal solution to ​ensure that everyone involved in your website strategy is on the same page. Contact us for details.

Standard Training Advanced Training
Dates August 21-23, 2017 August 24-25, 2017
Number of Days 1.5
Location California

Our Advanced search engine optimization training course leading to optional SEO certification is for those who want a more complex look into the practice, the technical “back end” of SEO, and who plan on being “power users” of our SEO tools. This SEO training is 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, taken in succession in our SEO classroom during the same week or at a later date.

Certification offers the right to display our 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 Discounts page for details.

Both SEO classes offer unique perks: an intimate and interactive classroom where questions are encouraged; breaks and lunches that are great for networking or talking directly with Bruce Clay and Mindy Weinstein about your website; a chance to be interviewed for BCI’s YouTube video series; special guests; and much more.

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: , 990
