where and how to call an about us link

We're planning a corporate website. We did a card sort test
and people find and "about us" section

We wonder a couple of things

1. Where to place it. We think that´s logical on the left
of the logo

Company´s logo | About us | Corporate Products | Other customers |

Maybe it´s not related to products and logical taxonomy is not with left to
We did a benchmark study. A lot of companies: Amazon, Yahoo! ...don´t use
an about us section at all

2. The second question is if a good title.

Senteo's Customer Experience Specialist certification - anyone knows more?

Greetings all,

A coworker is wondering about the value of a "Customer Experience Specialist three-day certification course" offered by a company called Senteo.


Might this be a good way for a non-UX trained professional to absorb lots of information and be a better manager of teams that include trained UX folks? Does anyone have experience with Senteo or their workshops?

Thanks in advance for any first- or second-hand info,
