PA Courses for Development and Success

PA courses help personal and executive assistants gain the key knowledge and expertise required to succeed in supporting managerial, directorial or other members of staff in a variety of contexts and at different levels.

PA courses cover the core competencies and transferable skills required for general PA success, such as communication, administration and time management; however, as PAs are in demand across a wide range of industries they are often required to demonstrate more specialist knowledge of the field, industry or business sector they are working in, and may need to take more specific training. These PA courses may include:

  • Business Awareness
  • Finance for the PA & Administration Personnel
  • Legal PA
  • Social Media Skills for a PA
  • The Team PA
  • Working with More Than One Boss
  • Virtual Assistants

Aspiring or existing PAs can benefit from gaining an accredited qualification in the field, typically a diploma or certificate, to demonstrate their competencies and enhance their opportunities for career development.

Administration

Courses in administration skills can be widely beneficial for personal assistants in any capacity. Such courses could range from basic office skills, such as note taking, dictation, receptionist and secretarial skills, to courses specifically aimed at the PA role, which encompass a variety of essential skills required in the position.

PAs are recruited to make a business more efficient, so professionals will also benefit from PA courses in areas such as time management, presentation and communication skills.

Executive positions for PAs

The most important function of a personal assistant is to be efficient in every duty, and this is certainly true for PAs who aspire to attain a position at an executive level. Training is available that can offer a variety of skills required at a high level, where the personal assistant is expected to have an extended understanding of the business.

These courses will involve training in improving personal effectiveness, communication and presentation, so that the personal assistant can effectively support the business owner or executives when dealing with high level clients and partners.

Further professional development for personal assistants

PAs are often required to manage and source resources, so they need to stay fully updated on industry best practices. It is important for PAs to take regular refresher courses or advanced-level training, to ensure they are staying in step with the pace of the business and/or digital world. 

Find your ideal training from the PA courses above, or view the full range of Office and Admin training courses where you will find courses for all areas of business and administration.
