License Holders: Interested in Teaching Online?

6 Steps to Earning Passive Income

Have you considered taking your unique knowledge and experience in the fields of plumbing or electrical to the next level and teaching Continuing Education to those in your field who could really use your expertise?

Here’s how to do it!

The first step is to create your content. For educational content to be approved by your state agency, check the regulations for continuing education, South Dakota Plumbing Commission, Nebraska State Electrical Division, Arkansas Board of Electrical Examiners.

Step 1 Create Your Script

Research your topic, draw on your experience in the field, and utilize the available legal resources, such as code, to write the script for your class. Take advantage of other industry professionals and colleagues to provide quality feedback on what you’ve developed.

Step 2 Film Your Script

Now, with script in hand, go to a professional videographer to bring your content to life. While in the studio, you’ll stand in front of a green screen and ‘teach’ your script from a teleprompter. 

Here are a few recommendations. If you don’t want to use one on our list, just google around to find a studio near you.

In South Dakota: dakota video + post

In Nebraska: Mr. Video Productions, Dundee Digital

In Arkansas: SeeSpotRun Productions, ARCOM Productions Inc., 360 filmworks

Step 3 Edit Your Video

Once the filming is done it will be edited, in many cases by the same studio which filmed the project. This is where all the magic happens. This could include:

  • Animations or graphics,
  • Closed-captioning,
  • Regulatory or statutory content,
  • Infographics, or
  • Background soundtrack.

Step 4 Create Your Questions

After video completion, you’ll want to develop questions for the students so that you can measure student comprehension and we can create transitions throughout your course.

Step 5 Send Your Videos and Questions to

When your video is done, contact to create an education provider account so that you can submit your video and questions to us.

We now create your online class in our Learning Management System (LMS).

Within a week, we’ll give you login credentials so you can make sure the course flows to your liking.

Step 6 Complete the Approval Process

Once you are satisfied with your course, you submit it to your state agency for approval through your education provider account. Your state agency audits your class and the moment you are approved, your course appears on the Course Lookup, where targeted buyers can purchase your class using any major credit card.

Your work is done!

Now it’s time to sit back, relax, and collect a monthly check for 70% of all enrollments!

Licensees register for your course directly from the Course Lookup. Your account manager will monitor your listing to maximize your sales, everything from your course description to your logo to your instructor biography. We handle all credit card processing fees, and any customer service or tech support questions students may have. Once license holders finish your class they are asked to leave a review and then have their hours automatically reported at

It really is that easy to earn passive income teaching and selling the expertise that you already have.
