A Certification Training Website provides computer and technology certification training for Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE) certifications, CompTIA A+, Network+, Server+, Security+, Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA), CCNE, Oracle, Java, Sun, Linux, Security, and other certifications. This training can be text based, Flash, audio, or video. You will earn revenue by selling access to this training.
The education and training service industry earns $30 billion in annual revenues. Computer and certification training accounts for nearly $4 billion of this revenue. This certification training website can earn revenue through both advertising and subscription sales.
If you are not experienced enough to prepare certification instructional material, you will need to purchase it from certification trainers. This will be the most significant cost during startup and can take some time.
One additional source of revenue is through the development of practice exams for different computer and networking certifications. These practice exams can be sold on a subscription basis with access to online test simulations, or through a downloadable software simulation exam.
How do I get started?
The first thing you need for a certification training website is content. You will either need to develop the content yourself or contract with technical training writers to develop the certification courses for sale on the certification training website.
This will be an expensive investment to make. This type of training material is time consuming to write and there are few qualified writers available to develop it. A training course of substance for one of these certifications will probably cost several thousand dollars to develop – up to $10,000. However, the sales you can make from this type of material is substantial!
After you have material developed for sale on your website, you will need an ecommerce site to sell it. You can use off-the-shelf software or a hosted ecommerce solution for your certification website to sell the courses.
