Continuing Education in (Internet) Marketing: Phoenix, California
The institutions below provide training in Internet marketing, including SEO, Social Media Marketing, and AdWords / PPC. However, be sure to check with each institution as to their schedule of classes, as not all subjects are offered at all times.

- Maricopa Community Colleges. Offers thousands of new learning experiences each semester through our continuing education, workforce development, community education and generational programs. Many community members enjoy the use of our fitness centers at an affordable price.
- The University of Phoenix. While technically an “online university,” they do offer a degree in Marketing, and that will have some coverage of SEO, Social Media, and even perhaps Internet advertising. But, again, this is technically “online” and just shares the name with Phoenix, Arizona.
- Phoenix SEO / Internet Marketing Meetup. Friends helping friends learning search engine optimization; meets once a month and was founded in August, 2008.
- Arizona State University, Continuing Education. Funded by the taxpayers of Arizona, this is the largest continuing education program in Phoenix. It has many courses on marketing, including Internet marketing in all forms. Schedules, of course, may vary.
- Grand Canyon University. Mainly for teachers, but may have some marketing and Internet-oriented courses of interest. You may have to cross-register with the “normal” college, however.
Training Options: Phoenix Online and Beyond
Phoenix is roughly 711 miles from our location in San Jose, California. With plane fares estimated at $500 round-trip, plus workshop time of 8 hours and 1/2 hour of preparation time for each hour of instruction… assuming you have a group of at least 5 persons, an in-person, private workshop training in SEO / Social Media / and/or AdWords would run roughly $1500 plus expenses. So your options are to either use the continuing education resources listed above (be sure to check their course catalogs for course offerings, as these vary over time), to use online training, or to contact us for a private workshop. We also provide one-on-one training online.
Some Phoenix history.
By 1868, a small colony had formed approximately four miles east of the present city. Swilling’s Mill became the new name of the area. It was then changed to Helling Mill, after which it became Mill City, and years later, East Phoenix. Swilling, having been a confederate soldier, wanted to name the new settlement Stonewall after Stonewall Jackson. Others suggested the name Salina, but neither name suited the inhabitants. It was Darrell Duppa who suggested the name Phoenix, inasmuch as the new town would spring from the ruins of a former civilization. That is the accepted derivation of our name.
Phoenix officially was recognized on May 4, 1868, when the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors, the county of which we were then a part, formed an election precinct here. Source: http://www.visitphoenix.com/about-phoenix/history/index.aspx.
