Executive PA Diploma - Blended, Distance Learning

The role of an Executive PA or Executive Assistant is a challenging one. An Executive PA needs to be able to anticipate the needs of company directors and senior management and essentially act as their life organiser. This is a job for someone who thrives on working under pressure in a demanding environment and who has exceptional skills in organisation and attention to detail.

This course will take those who already possess these innate abilities and train them in the practical skills that an Executive PA additionally needs for success on the job. Participants will learn up-to-date Microsoft Office applications, become familiar with the latest accountancy packages and either learn or refine traditional secretarial skills such as touch typing and audio transcription. With a combination of these practical skills and the Pitman Training name behind you. You will be a prime Executive PA candidate.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This Executive PA Diploma Programme is ideal for those who aspire to become a personal assistant at the highest level or who are already working as an Executive PA and wish to prove their skills with a diploma qualification.
