Wrap-Up

We’ll answer any final questions and talk about next steps for the final exam and final project.

Final Exam:

(1 hour)

After you have completed the Online Training Program and the Live Seminar, you will have a multiple-choice and short-answer final exam. Passing the exam with a score of at least 80% is required for certification​. (In the event you do not pass the exam on the first attempt, you may retake the exam at no additional cost.)

Final Project:

(12-14 hours)

The final project is where you and your team will get your hands dirty actually building a practice 1 Day Website. The final project must be completed within 60 days of the Live Seminar.

You can use a real client as a guinea pig, donate a website to a local nonprofit or build a website for a family or friend. You’ll set the expectations up front that this is a practice 1 Day to let the pressure off, and then get your team together to create some website magic!

Once you have completed the site, we will evaluate the website for best practices and offer feedback. The final project is graded Pass/Fail. You will also complete a survey about your experience and lessons learned.

Optional Shadow Opportunity

You may participate in shadowing one of our real-life 1 Day Website services through our flagship agency Bizzy Bizzy any time within 6 months of your certification. This is not required to achieve certification.

Certification

When you pass the exam and final project and agree to our terms of use, you will achieve the 1 Day Website Certified Agency designation. You will be licensed to use our Certified 1 Day Agency Logo on your website, and you will be listed on our website as a certified agency.

The knowledge you acquire and relationships you build during our 1 Day Certification process will catapult you to becoming an innovator and leader in the web design industry. You will be able to help your clients launch their projects faster to accelerate their success!

“As a copywriter, I regularly get called into projects when they’re already months behind schedule. We all know the story: the client says they’ll provide copy, but… you know… writing’s hard! The developer has finished everything, but you can’t publish a site with lorem ipsum. So once the project is sufficiently behind schedule, someone says to the client: maybe you should call a copywriter to help get this done.
Having worked on dozens of 1 Day sites, I can state unequivocally that the 1 Day model upends this all-too-frequent problem. When I’m part of a 1 Day team, I start the day off with an in-depth interview with the client, learning about them, their offerings, their unique value proposition and what makes them, them. Then I spend the rest of the day writing and working with the client directly to perfect their story.
As someone who’s literally been involved with projects that were years—YEARS—behind schedule, I can honestly say that while the 1 Day process might not be magic, it’s about as close as you’re going to find in the complicated world of web development.”
