Hope you get some great responses. I'll be watching.

Maybe there are jobs for us to go to India and teach English?

You mean a legitimate job? Not without experience or other prerequisites.

Based on your question - I'm thinking you're talking getting said certificate within 6 months... and the position will pay on average 60K/year in the US.

There are always exceptions to every situation - but for the most part, how realistic does it sound? For an unqualified person to take a short training (or even a series of trainings), and walk out with a certificate that will get them a well paying job.

If that was true, how long do you think that will last before said market is saturated?

There are three areas of business.

Speed, Quality, and Cost.

You can only ever be good at two at once.

With the training you are looking for, this means if you want good and fast training, it will be expensive. If you want good and cheap training, it will take a long time. If you want cheap and fast training, it will not be good.

Sorry...

There are a few two year training programs in the health care field, but I think you need a minimum of an associates degree, perhaps even a bachelors to start. Is two years quick?

You could get your STNA certificate, doesn't pay too much, but it's a job. Also look into getting your 120 hour gun certification for being a security officer.

VE training is great, but the quicky that claims high skill is not.
take it in steps, my favorite ladder is CNA, LVN, RN.
7 weeks CNA, 42 units LVN and then the crossover program 30 units to RN
all available in jr college or ROP.
no 4 year school necessary.
cheap debt free ed that pays well.
do not sign up for a degree in nursing with a million prerequisites.

There are jobs you can train for in a short time that pay well. One example, oil refinery jobs. Welding inspector is one where training is short and this can bring in a great income. One downfall is time away from family and I don't want to be an absent father. Not worth it.

Lets here some more jobs that pay very well and don't require much training time. Thanks.

Railroad conductor can pay very well, have great benefits and it requires a very short, often paid training period provided by the railroad companies. There's alot of downsides to this type of work though, especially for the first 2-10 years of your career. Do a great amount of research about the job and the companies before you try to hire in.
