Choosing Administrative Training That’s Right for You

Office Dynamics

The challenge may come when you realize there are a plethora of training programs, conferences, webinars and other learning events for administrative assistants and executive assistants. For example, when assistants ask me which training would be best for them between our conference and World Class Assistant Certification live course, I ask them “What are your goals?” I am the only person teaching, we go very deep into the material and there is ample time for skill practice.

I’d like to help you understand better so you can stop asking yourself “what is the difference between an administrative conference and administrative training?” When choosing an administrative conference or training, choose wisely. Skill practice – some Skill practice – ample time to practice newly-learned skills.
