Some training suggestions for assistants

Practically Perfect PA

Quite often I am asked which courses I would recommend for assistants that are just starting in the profession and want to undertake some training to increase their skills and help them move up the career ladder.

How Weight Training Will Affect You In The Long Run

Research has shown time and again that bone strength and density can be improved with the use of weight training, even in those who already suffer from the effects.

The truth is that anyone can complete a marathon if he or she trains properly. He only needs to have the desire, time and the right tips on how to train for a marathon. “You can run a marathon without training properly, but you won’t enjoy the experience.” Other experts, like David Whitsett, author of The Non-Runner’s Marathon Trainer, suggest that beginners should have, at least, five months to train.

Eat Your Career

My number one goal is to help ensure that participants get a TON of value from their training. After all, if you can’t get approval from your leaders to participate in training, little else matters. Of course, you’re still an adult with free will; you certainly can (and should) take part in training outside of work hours, and you can always pay for it with your own money. To gain leadership approval, you need to create a business case to support your training request.

How Much Training Do You Really Need?

Step It Up VA Coaching

Is it really true that the more technical training and certifications you receive, the more valuable you are to clients?
