  60. I am looking forward to becoming a VA and work for myself. How long did it take everyone before you could even get work from VA Porgams? Did you have take medical terminology, training classes, etc.? I am told 1 year. Thanks so much I am so impress with all the names for VA

  61. Wow! I’ve been certified! Found out this week that I am one of the first four to be awarded and the first in the UK.

    Looking forwarded to proudly displaying my logo.


  62. I have been working as a VA for a year and a half and love the idea of being certified. I can’t wait to get started towards that goal!

  63. This is GREAT! I look forward to becoming certified. This simply adds to the many different talents I have to offer my clients. Thank you!

  64. So happy to be VAcertified now! I can hardly wait for the directory to be up so I can see who else is certified!

  65. I am so excited to receive this certification. I am very proud to display the certification on my web site.

  66. I am looking forward to learning more about the certification program and agree that it is an excellent credential to share with clients.

  67. I am interested in becoming a virtual assistant, but have significant experience already. I have a BBA in Management, over 30 years experience working with different office machines and applications, since I was actually around when PCs came on the market when I was 17.

    I have also completed 9 online masters courses in Instructional Technology, and through this time, I was a group leader for more than 10 groups. My portfolio of my work is my website.

    The training I would need the most, is the skills specific to virtual assistants, and the methods in setting up and starting a successful business.

    Two years ago, I moved to be near my father after my mother died. I was a certified math,science and business education teacher, but found my certifications would not transfer without significant expense of more coursework and more testing. When I have so many demonstrated technological skills I felt it was a waste of time and money to further pursue education.

    Please let me know what it would take to become a VA and reputable training facilities.

  68. I want to become a VA and learn how to run a business from home, I am in the medical field and I work in a hospital setting and also I have administrative experience, but I need some training to get back on track.

  69. I stumbled upon becoming a Virtual Assistant while on maternity leave. I am not excited about going back to Corporate America so I’m please that there is a certification to help make my decision to stay home easier

  70. There is nothing better than having the freedom to work from home, be your own boss and avoid the corporate ratrace 😉 Good luck with your new career!

  71. You appear to have the technical side covered to become a Virtual Assistant and just need help taking your business virtually. With some common business help and support from other VAs, you may just find that is all you need. I suggest joining the Virtual Assistant Forum and post your questions there.

  72. I feel so liberated to work at home and have all of these avenues opened up to me. God, this is exciting.

  73. This is great information. I a newly started VA business with a specialization in the legal environment in Charlotte, NC.

  74. I have been in business for a couple of years now, but I’m not certified. I would like my VA certification to build credibility with my virtual audience.

  75. Credibility in the eyes of your prospective clients is highly important to the Virtual Assistant landing that next client. It highlights your VA business over your competitors who are not certified and makes your VA business one clients can trust.

    Clients originally came to me requesting this VA Certification Board to help make the task of finding the best VA for them easier, the reason we developed :)

  76. I am new to the Virtual Assistant industry. I have provided administrative support for various levels of management for over 12 years were the demand for strong organizational, customer service, technical, and interpersonal skills was at a high demand. With my enthusiasm to work in a fast-pace environment and my eagerness to learn new initiatives; I am confident that my skills are well-aligned with the role, and that I would be an excellent fit as a Virtual Assistant. My struggle is getting started.

  77. I will be concentration on an Internet Research VA niche. Is your certification niche specific or general?

  78. It is a general VA Certification taking in all niches. is the only virtual assistant certification program in the world that looks at everything that makes you YOU. That means you are credited for your unique skills and experience.
