Steps To Starting A Computer School In Nigeria

Conduct a research study

No pilot wants to fly an airplane blindly. This phrase can be related to not studying a business before getting into the business. So I strongly recommend that you do some business research and write down how much it costs to set up, maintain, and the potential revenue from the business.

Technical skills (i.e. computer literacy)

Teaching skills

Buying Devices 

To run a computer training center, you don’t have to invest a lot of money in devices other than computers. Because computers are the most important piece of equipment in a purchase, it is advisable to purchase the latest, most up-to-date computers. You will need an internet connection, chairs, tables, computer tables, relevant software necessary to run selected courses, etc.

The following is a list of some of the services provided by a computer training center;





Spiral binding

Laminating (optional)

Online registration (optional)

Hiring staff

In order to operate an IT training center, you basically need two types of staff: on the one hand, teaching staff and on the other hand, non-teaching staff. Hire experienced teachers in this field based on the courses on offer. You can hire by class, and if students arrive in large numbers, consider having permanent teachers.

Market Your Business 

 ‘A Bad Product With Good Marketing Works Better Than A Good Product With Bad Marketing’ . Carry this ideology with you and you will understand that by the end of the production of all marketing every effort should be put in. Write down all of the advertising and marketing media that you would like to use to attract customers, be it direct marketing, online advertising, print advertising, or television advertising. Find out where you want to advertise and make a detailed plan of how much money you want to spend on those adverts. Then, advertise your products.


In conclusion, the most important thing is that you enjoy each stage. Don’t be afraid to fail. If you don’t, you have failed too. So go ahead. Someone else could beat you, so act quickly now. All the best!
