Recommended Virtual Assistant Training Resources
There are a tons of training programs available to Virtual Assistants today. BUT, you really need to do your research to make sure you sign up to a reputable program as many scams exist online.
I’ve been a VA since 2009 and know quite a bit about the industry. Do your due diligence before taking the plunge into any sort of training by connecting with other VAs to hear their feedback.
Here are the programs I’ve tested and recommend for Virtual Assistants…
Virtual Assistant Career
The VAC is a Virtual Assistant Business Start Up System. This is for someone new to the industry or for someone who needs structure. The VAC is a fabulous program and gives you everything you need to get your business off the ground; including a website. Tawnya has been a leader in the Virtual Assistant industry since 2003 and knows everything there is to know about being a VA. I highly recommend taking a look at this program. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me, or to Tawnya and let her know that Danielle sent you. You may think that $997 is a lot of money but it is not when you break down what you get in this system
- Virtual Assistant Start Up Training System from an industry leader (priceless, in my opinion)
- 1 Year membership to the VAinsiders Club ($333 value), plus a 50% lifetime discount to the club.
- A website/blog for your Virtual Assistant Business with 1 year of hosting
- 4 reference ebooks
- Lifetime access to the private VAC members only forum area
- Business plan
- Private coaching session with Tawnya
This is another one of Tawnya’s products. This is a membership that is for VAs at any stage. The VAinsiders Club has an endless amount of training for VAs. As a VAinsider Club you’ll have access to:
- The RFP job board
- Tracking Tracks
- Over 100 business templates
- Group Coaching
- Get-it-Done half-day workshops
- Private forum area to network and ask questions
- and much more
I have found most of my clients on the VAinsiders Club job board. One part of the VAinsider Club that I really enjoy and notice that others don’t take full advantage of is the private networking area in the forum. It’s where I go to ask questions and get answers from other expert VAs. This area is exclusive to the club members. VAinsider Club members also get a discount to Tawnya’s famous VAvirtuosos Seminar Series which is held every fall. Which I will be talking about next.
VAvirtuosos Seminar Series
The VAvirtuosos Seminar Series is a virtual conference that is put on once a year. I always attend it and help host it. Even if I didn’t help host it, I would attend. I think that every VA should write this conference into their budget NOW. At only $37 to it’s something we should all be attending.
These are all training programs that I recommend at this time. There are several programs out there and if you have any questions about them please reach out to me.
