"Narrowing the skills gap, one chapter at a time."

This video-based certification course will help you create and repurpose content that both humans and search engines will love.

Self-Study Group Format

The format of a virtual self-study group is as follows:

• Each participant gains access to a HubSpot Academy account.

• Each participant commits to review one video-based Lesson per week and complete any quizzes in preparation for certification exam.

• Each participant obtains assistance by posting questions to a discussion area set up on the Boston PHP Message Board for each Lesson. Each comment will receive a response. Participants will also receive a weekly group e-mail update form your Senior Percolator (facilitator).

• Each participant will receive a certificate from HubSpot Academy upon completion of 12 Lessons and successful completion of final exam.

NOTE: There is no classroom instruction. There are no webcasts. There are no scheduled appointments of any kind.

Once you have access to HubSpot Academy, you simply proceed at a pace that best fits into your current work/life schedule.
