A ‘YouTube Creator Academy Completion Certificate: Maximize Your Channel’ certificate was awarded to each student who completed YouTube’s inaugural video course. The course was completed in June 2013
It is worth your while going through the YouTube Creator Academy course yourself when YouTube runs these again.
You will learn what matters most to YouTube to rank, gain subscribers and produce a great channel.
Even after 18 months in YouTube masterminds I found this a good revision plus new learnings.
