We’ll answer any final questions and talk about next steps for the final exam and final project.
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.)
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.
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!
“It might not sound all that novel – a website in a day. After all, anyone can head into a drag and drop WYSIWYG site-builder and hack something together in a day. Let me tell you – this ain’t that!
This is an SEO-optimized WordPress site, custom-built for every client. I’ve been involved in a bunch of these and honestly, no two are alike. And they’re built to scale and rank.
I’ve never walked away from one where the client wasn’t thrilled with both the process and the final outcome. Which is NOT the norm for most web development projects in my experience. Not by a longshot.
