FAQs

Questions? Check out the frequently asked questions below.

Do I have to prepare anything before attending the course?
-

For in-person training, do bring along a laptop. You also have the option to loan a laptop from us for the duration of the course. You may also want to bring along a jacket in case the room gets cold.

For online classes, do ensure you have a functional laptop and have Zoom installed prior to class. For more details, you may read the Online-based Classroom Learner Guide.

Are there any other prerequisites/ criteria I need to meet in order to attend this course?
-

You are required to have basic computer navigational skills such as opening and closing, dragging and dropping, copying and pasting of files.

Participants with no prior experience in SEO are required to complete the WSQ Search Engine Optimisation Course.

What is the difference between the WSQ SEO course and this advanced course?
-

The basic SEO course covers the fundamental concepts of search engine optimisation and how to rank a website on the first page of Google. The advanced SEO course goes into more detail covering more advanced concepts of search engine optimisation such as managing day-to-day SEO operations. You may go through and review both course outlines in detail and contact us should you have any specific questions on this.

Do you offer career assistance for job seekers looking to get into digital marketing?
-

Yes. We offer career assistance and job placements through our digital marketing hiring and career assistance programs. Visit our career portal for more information.

If I have any questions after the course, can I consult the trainer?
-

Yes, you may contact your trainer after the course. There are other post-training support channels such as the Equinet Academy Insider Community where you may network with like-minded individuals and industry experts and live Ask Me Anything sessions where you may seek advice from a subject matter expert.

What is the difference between online classroom and in-person classroom learning modes?
-

Typically, in a traditional classroom, classes are conducted with 1 trainer to 20 – 24 learners in a cluster or classroom seating format. Group discussions, group presentations, lectures, peer-to-peer coaching are all conducted face-to-face (in-person).

In an online-based classroom, lessons will be delivered via a video conferencing software, Zoom. Lectures will be conducted via screensharing, while group discussions and group brainstorming will be conducted via “breakout” rooms (individual virtual rooms) to split up discussions into smaller groups. Both learning modes essentially offer the same course content and learning outcomes.

Read the Online-based Classroom Learner Guide for a more detailed comparison on both formats.

Can't I learn everything over the internet?
-

Our courses offer a very hands on approach so that you will be able to apply what you learn immediately. Moreover, our trainers are industry practitioners who will be able to answer your questions and offer expert advice in real time.

We also offer post-training support which includes 2-hour Ask Me Anything sessions with an industry expert for up to 3 years, an online refresher seat within 3 years post-training, access to an insider community, and 3-year access to up-to-date courseware via the learning management system.

Are these short courses sufficient to achieve desirable learning outcomes?
-

Equinet Academy’s courses are meticulously designed to provide bite-sized yet comprehensive information that are highly relevant to the industry’s needs. Through a combination of individual project work, peer-to-peer interaction, and practice and feedback, trainees can immediately apply the concepts learnt in class to their real world projects.

You will also have full access to the courseware online which you may review during and after the course, and post-training support to address any challenges you may face along your learning journey through consultation with subject matter experts.
