What happens each week after the program begins?

What's the benefit of Guided Online vs. Self-Guided?
While many people thrive on a self-paced learning schedule, others need a set schedule in order to get their coursework completed in a timely fashion. Further, many Social School students are keen to access additional resources, coaching, feedback and support as they move through their virtual learning, and the Guided Online program's weekly Webinars and Office Hours sessions offer exactly that.
Where do I access the courses?
Immediately upon registration, you will receive a welcome email and login instructions for your custom Virtual Course Dashboard. Inside your custom course dashboard you will find all lessons, materials and resources, unlocked course by course, week after week.
What kind of certification will I receive?
Upon completion of all 5 courses, you will be issued an official Digital Marketing Certificate from Social School. And don't worry – we'll be sending along notifications each week to alert you when your new course has arrived in your dashboard, and to prepare you for what's ahead the following week.
Learn from wherever you are, whenever you’d like.
Welcome to the Self-Guided Online offering of the Digital Marketing Certificate Program, where the courses, tools and takeaways remain best in class, and you’ve got a full 12 months to complete them – at your own pace, on your own time.
This unparalleled virtual training program allows you to purchase individual courses as you see fit, or combine all five proprietary Digital Marketing Courses into one world-class online certificate.
Upon completion of all five courses and their corresponding requirements, you’ll be the proud new owner of a DIGITAL Marketing Certificate from Social School.
How does the Self-Guided Online program work?
The Self-Guided Online program is perfect if you want to learn at your own pace. Maybe you’ve got a full-time job and can’t commit to scheduled weekly On Campus classes or Guided Online webinars, or perhaps you have a holiday ahead and want to build your skills while catching some sun. No matter the circumstance, the Self-Guided Online program is a great option for today’s learners.
