- Why does this class cost so much?
- Consider that many certification prep classes range in price from $3500 to $7000.
- Consider the effort that goes into creating a training class.Each hour of pro level classroom time needs 8-10 hours of analysis, design, prep and delivery work to accomplish. Many classes, like Power BI, also require monthly updates which adds another two hours per month per hour of class for review and update.So for each day of class time that is three months old, let’s assume 16 hours cumulative effort per hour of instruction or roughly 400 hours of effort for a certification prep class. For simplicity, let’s call this $60,000 of investment in time and materials to be recouped. This ignores cost of time it took to learn the domain.
Consider that your cost to spend 400 hours of your time to gather the same information, assuming $50/hour is $20,000.
This $20,000 cost assumes you have no other valuable work to do in the 400 hours (roughly 3 months) extra you are spending to do the gathering, which may take longer as you also have to learn the domain.
It also does not include the value of the knowledge gained, which may lead to bonuses and raises. It also does not include the time saved developing BI content for your company. This class pays for itself very quickly.
