- What consultants with certain skills expect to make.
- What the demand for particular skills are.
- A company's own pay scale and salary structure.
SAP training can be a decent career, but keep in mind that the demand and budget for trainers is always lower than the rates for implementation consultants. However, I do know trainers who don't mind making less money because they love what they do. If I were you, I would see if you could negotiate a pay structure with a reasonable base salary and a number of milestone bonuses based on either performance or materials delivery.
