Not directly, but it’s because of a good reason that benefits you.
We’ve found that most training providers in general (not specifically notary training providers) are either supply sellers first and trainers second or trainers first and supply sellers second.
That means that they’re usually not really good at both. Let us explain. Suppose you sell supplies. One day you might realize that you can also sell training to your customers, but you’re not really a trainer; you’re a supplier. Since your specialty isn’t training you might not make a great course.
Now suppose you’re a trainer. You probably made a great training course, but one day you realize that you can make more money by selling supplies to your training customers. Since your specialty is not retail, you’re probably not going to be able to offer the best prices.
We don’t know which other notary training vendors that sell supplies are trainers first or which are suppliers first, but we do know that you can usually find supplies at much less expensive prices by purchasing them directly from suppliers that specialize in notary supplies.
