Does anyone know, off hand, if you need any kind of license to offer an online certificate in a specific subject discipline? I am playing a run-around game and was wondering if anyone can help me here. I understand every state is different, but if someone could help me here in terms of offering an online certificate online and what it really entals, that'd be great! Thanks!
Jason, it does vary state to state and it also depends on the subject matter expertise you are providing a certificate for. Ultimately customers will seek the license which provides the best mobility or value to them (so working with a national or state agency to give your certificate validity is a good strategy). If you can be more specific to the subject matter expertise I'm sure someone can help shed some light on it.
Thanks, I really appreciate it! I am looking to offer an online certificate in sports management/studies. However, in my state (NY) I don't think it's part of the required subject areas that needs to be certified in order to teach it. Either way though, I plan on getting some form of validity to make it more appealing toward students, while letting them know they're getting a quality certificate.
