Vail, CO (PRWEB) April 30, 2006
Starting a service business in an exploding industry with constantly changing technology where service provider and client are separated by great distances may seem impossible or even crazy. A new training program shows entrepreneurs how to overcome these enormous challenges and launch successful virtual service businesses.
Virtual Business Training announced an innovative training program to facilitate the development of viable and sustainable businesses for Virtual Associates and Virtual Assistants (VAs) who use cutting-edge technology to provide administrative, creative, managerial, technical or personal services from their own offices to clients across the country and around the globe.
According to a 2000 George Washington University Forecast of Emerging Technologies, the VA industry is one of the fastest growing home-based businesses and is expected to reach a $130 billion dollar industry by 2008. Gretchen Berg, founder of Virtual Business Training, states, “The industry is facing rapid growth in a short period of time. Advances in technology will remove geographical boundaries and enable additional service sectors to provide services remotely. We will be hard pressed to meet the demand for trained virtual associates while maintaining industry integrity. Virtual Business Training is dedicated to ensuring the education of virtual associates and meeting the demand in an ever growing market.”
Virtual Business Training is unique in that it simulates a virtual work environment by spending more time on task and less time in the classroom. The program cultivates tomorrow’s virtual associates through practical instruction, hands-on client simulation exercises and peer collaboration in a dynamic online learning environment. The 10 week program will begin each quarter starting in June 2006.
