Emporia, VA (PRWEB) October 3, 2005 — VSSCyberOffice today announced the addition of a new course module to its current online vLearning Center Knowledge Portal, called, “Introduction to Virtual Assistance 101”, a primer, self directed, distance elearning course for individuals who are interested in exploring career opportunities as a Virtual Assistant.
A Virtual Assistant (VA) is defined by VSSCyberOffice as “an independent contractor who supports a number of disbursed clients around the corner or around the globe (administratively in nature) using a combination of collaborative tools and technologies such as efax, cell phone, palm pilots, two-way pagers, instant messaging with video, interactive websites, email, interactive meeting rooms and lots of creativity”.
According to a 2000 George Washington University Forecast of Emerging Technology, the Virtual Assistant (Virtual Outsourcing) industry is expected to reach a $130 billion dollar industry by 2008. According to Victoria Parham, president and founder of VSSCyberOffice “growth and competition in this industry is evolving at a steady pace with new Virtual Assistants launching practices everyday. However, to remain competitive, Virtual Assistants will need to invest in themselves and in their companies through formalized training and mentorship.” “As the industry continues to evolve, companies with larger scale outsourcing budgets will begin seeking the expertise of record-driven Virtual Assistants and Virtual Business Owners to help support their long-term goals and initiatives”, said Parham.
VSSCyberOffice currently oversees a Department of Defense Virtual Business Ownership Training Program Initiative that trains and mentors military spouses online, teaching “How to Start, Grow, and Manage” an online virtual business in cyberspace. The company also offers a Virtual Business Owners Training Program open to non military customers, with an annual tuition of $199.95 which is scheduled to increase in 2006.
VSSCyberOffice is a military spouse and veteran-owned business support services and entrepreneurial training firm.
