The short answer is:
Yes, we do provide training for our virtual assistants and virtual marketers, but not for everyone. Read below to understand the details.
The long answer is:
Since our company’s inception, Virtual Latinos committed itself to not only build a portal and company to connect businesses from North America with virtual assistants in South America, but to also become an important resource and entity that provides professional, high-end training to the members of its community.
We invite about 15% of all virtual assistants that we admit into our community to be a part of our group of “Certified” virtual Assistants and virtual marketers. Learn more here.
Everyone who’s a part of our “Certified” group does, in fact, receive training. In our case, our training and certification programs are focused on providing digital marketing training with US-based lessons and courses. For this reason, the short answer above is “Yes”, as our company does invest in paying for courses and training materials to ensure that our virtual assistants are highly qualified and skilled in the services they offer.
Those virtual assistants who are not invited to join our “Certified” group, still get access to our training resources. They get to choose which resources to use, such as what courses to take, which articles to read, and which guides to follow.

Does Virtual Latinos offer training resources on how to work as a virtual assistant?
Yes, our virtual assistants hiring company does offer and provide our assistants with access to various resources that help them learn more about how to efficiently and successfully work as a remote worker, virtual assistant or virtual marketer. It’s important to mention that although we do provide access to various training resources, we do not require our virtual assistants to complete them (Except those in our “Certified” virtual assistants program).
Each individual assistant chooses whether or not to read and self-teach themselves the tools, strategies, and tips on how to work efficiently. Yet, because everyone has a different level of work experience and skills, some virtual assistants may need more training than others.
Are virtual assistants trained by the Virtual Latinos team?
No, our team does not individually train or coach the members of our virtual assistants’ community – except those top candidates we invite to be a part of our “Certified” group.
Therefore, whether you hire through our Directory or through our Agency, you or someone from your company will need to train your virtual assistant or marketer based on your specific requirements and needs.
In the same way that a business hires a regular employee, the business/company will need to invest some time and resources to train and onboard any new assistants so that they can become proud and active members of your team.
