Please NoteIVAA Training, Resources & Tools

Today, many Virtual Assistants niche or specialize in one or two areas of business to better serve their clients and, therefore, seek certifications in those areas. Certification is the official approval to do something professionally or legally.

Because the Virtual Assistant industry has grown at such a rapid pace and the types of services are so numerous, IVAA has decided it is in the best interest of our Virtual Assistant members to discontinue our Certification Programs.

In its place, IVAA is developing a new program called “Training, Resources & Tools.”

The list of resources will consist of industry leaders who offer education and training in services our members may offer to their clients. Many of these industry leaders have certification programs

By training and certifying in your niche, not only are you investing in yourself and business by showing potential clients:

  • You are an expert in your niche.
  • Your VA business is the “cream of the crop.”
  • You are a competitor in an ever-changing, rapidly growing industry.

As you move forward with any education, training and certification, remember it is important to take the time to research the education you are looking at before making your decision.

When you choose training, please sign up via the IVAA Education and Training Resource List as we are affiliates with many of the programs.
