Providing Professional training for individuals and businesses will satisfy a huge demand.
Because the academic curriculum in many universities is out of date and largely irrelevant in today’s industries, more university graduates need to ‘update’ their knowledge and skills to stand a good chance of employment. Faced with rapidly changing technologies and stiff competition in a difficult job market, more Africans are seeking professional training and certifications to complement their university and college degrees.
Certifications from both local and internationally-recognized professional institutions are acknowledged to increase a person’s prospects of getting a job (with better-than-average pay) and advance their careers (especially via promotions). The most highly demanded professional certifications are in Information Technology (IT), Engineering, Finance & Accounting, Law and Management training (including project management, supply chain management and several others).
Many of these professions are strictly regulated by local and international private or government-backed organizations. These institutions often require candidates to be trained according to a specific curriculum before writing the certification examinations. As a result, a growing number of accredited training and test centers have entered the market to exploit the huge demand for professional training and certifications.
The business concept here can be very simple: Provide high-quality training in an area of great demand in the country of your operation. It’s important that you provide a couple of outstanding training packages that become your trademark. You don’t want to be another Internet shop in Africa that provides IT training; instead strive towards becoming an authority in your field. You can then charge accordingly for your training sessions and expand your business by employing qualified trainers who are instructed by you, so your trademark training continues to grow in popularity. The great benefit with providing training packages is that you will usually not need much financial capital to invest: your knowledge, skills, and social capital will drive your business.
