5 Real World Jobs & Businesses You Can Land with Online Courses
by: Joe Arnold
We are currently living through a massive societal shift. We carry an incomprehensible amount of information with us every day in our pockets. Accessing information outside of traditional institutions was already trending before 2020. Then the Covid-19 pandemic sped up the process by a decade or more.
The pandemic forcing the entire world inside made colleges and trade schools to teach remotely. The world learned in a few short months that we had been learning and working the same way before the information revolution.
The diminishing value of college degrees
Now that the barrier to information has crumbled, colleges don’t hold as much power. People who want to improve their situation by obtaining a better job, shouldn’t be forced into tens of thousands of dollars of debt.
A degree doesn’t guarantee success anymore. It is simply a way to communicate to employers that you have obtained certain knowledge. Now that we have access to the internet, job seekers and entrepreneurs can access this knowledge for a fraction of the cost through an eLearning platform and online courses.
Many eLearning platforms offer affordable courses that will prepare you for real work situations. No prerequisite courses, no reason to drown yourself in debt to prepare yourself for a career.
To be honest, several companies interview job applicants who graduated college with business degree but couldn’t give any valuable input to a real life business, and many who graduated with a major in marketing who couldn’t plan a basic marketing campaign. Such is the real life value of many college degrees these days!
In this article, we will demonstrate how eLearning courses, such as Trainovate’s CPD accredited programs can prepare you for your next career, build your knowledge to advance in your current occupation or even start your own business.
Here are 5 jobs and business ideas you can do with eLearning:
Becoming a Safety Officer
Our eLearning platform proudly offers a NEBOSH course for an International General Certificate in health and safety management. This is accredited by the National Board in Occupational Safety & Health (NEBOSH) in the UK.
Safety and health are relevant to every workplace environment. While many more dangerous jobs like construction and engineering require safety certifications, this course can be applied to an array of professional settings.
Anyone in a management role or looking to start their own business should consider health and safety as one of their top priorities.
NEBOSH is the most trusted safety qualification of its kind in the world. With this extensive 107 step online course served on our eLearning platform, participants will be certified to effectively manage common workplace hazards, assess risks, implement a detailed action plan, and minimize workplace accidents.
Landing a job as a Sales Agent
The ability to sell is a valuable skill. Our online sales course can teach you the necessary skills to land a new job or launch a business selling products face-to-face or online. The course covers how to close more sales, build customer relationships, how to write and utilize a sales script, and other tools that are applicable across all positions.
Jobs in sales are usually commission-based. With the preparation provided by Trainovate, you will be in a position to utilize a tried-and-true sales method that will deliver results.
A certificate with CPD points will even give you a leg up on other applicants looking for a new position as a sales agent or help sell your product or service.

All businesses require an auditing management system; let it be quality, safety or environment. Constantly evaluating the company’s policies, contract commitments, and regulatory requirements is essential to keeping a business running smoothly.
Our Mini-MBA program prepares you for higher level roles in your company and gets you ahead of that next promotion.
Applying for Hotel and Restaurant Jobs
Pre-covid the restaurant business was one of the most brutal industries. Restaurants were among the most affected during the coronavirus lockdowns. Many service industry businesses didn’t survive the pandemic; this opens up the opportunity for future entrepreneurs.
Many of the online courses offered on the Trainovate platform can prepare you for a career or new business venture in the hotel and restaurant space. Our eLearning courses on Health and Safety Management Systems, Managing Risks, and Occupational Health and Industrial Hygiene will give you the skills needed to succeed in the service industry.
Starting your Online Advertising Consultancy Business
Starting an agency is a great business with low overhead and huge growth potential. The ability to buy digital ads from technology companies like Facebook and Google are skills that don’t require a college degree and every business desperately needs. Helping companies advertise can easily be done from a laptop and all the knowledge can be obtained online.
Business owners don’t have time to master the FB Ads Manager or Google AdWords. They need knowledgeable marketers to deliver their message to potential customers. Those familiar with these platforms can leverage their knowledge in marketing to create consistent revenue.
