Traing to become a virtual assistant

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a good school or a training course that I could take to become a virtual assistant? I don't have any ecperience in this field. I would like to find a school that would be very thorough. I would appreciate any help.

 

Thanks

First off, the training schools for VAs won't teach you the hands on requirements you need ie) Well versed in Microsoft Office, etc. You really need to have some secretarial skills before you go about attending any of the online schools for VAs. Saying that I know Red Deer Unversity actually gives you the hands on skills. But if you already have these skils, you may want to consider VAU, AssistU, UofVAs, VATP or even our Virtual Assistant Startup System.

 

Do you have any skills in this area? If not, you may want to take some adult or online classes in MS Word, Excel, etc. Also, what is your work experience in the corporate world as an adminstrative secretary? Answers to these will give us some ideas on where to guide you in working towards becoming a VA.

 

If you sign up for our newsletter, you will get a downloadable spreadsheet of all the VA training programs that we are aware of so far and acknowledge.

 

Hope this helps!
