    Unless they have sites ranking or had sites ranked, it's pretty much a waste of time.

    You can't learn SEO by buying any cource. Instead, you should start with experimenting things on sites and you are on one of the best SEO forums so ask people if you need any help somewhere.

    I took this course on Udemy.com called: SEO for SEO Beginners for FREE! Of course it had a lot of useless information and they tend to repeat themselves a LOT, but it is free and it can give you a kickstart to learn new things.

    EDIT: And it has 4.3 stars

    Be mindful of the fact that most 'SEO guides' are geared towards selling the reader something. The more guides you read the more you'll realize they are all pretty much saying the same thing, just in a different way somehow.

    Im not saying its useless info, im saying don't go paying for it when it exists entirely free.

    Paid courses are worth it... for the guy charging the fee's.

    There probably IS out there in the vast ocean of crap advice and gurus a course that is actually good... but good luck finding it. You're better off just starting with a book off Amazon and then reading up on the forums.

    There's another "free" course on Udemy titled "What Is SEO? Learn SEO Basics & Optimize Your Website"...

    Over 30k students enrolled and an overall rating of 4.4 out of 5 from over 1400 reviews. Surely worth a try?

    seo is simple, but people can make it 100 pages pdf and 50 hours of videos to waste your time and money.

    just look around here about:

    - onpage seo
    - offpage seo
    - link juice

    No, dont buy courses, buy articles and publish on your domains. Then learn how to rank through the countless resources available online.
