The Virtual Latinos Learning Badge Program
Virtual Latinos is thrilled to announce that as of January 2022 we are officially launching the first Virtual Latinos Learning Badge Program! A program we have been working on for a while now, designed to help our amazing VAs acquire new skills, from different fields, that are in high demand in the job market today.
This program is exclusive for the Virtual Latinos community and all the amazing Virtual Assistants and Virtual Professionals in it.
We’ll be continuously selecting courses on subjects such as Marketing, SEO, Advertising and Graphic Design to enhance our community’s experience and provide the best training we can find out there. We want to help you have a competitive advantage in your job search and increase your chances of getting hired.
These badges and certifications will represent a symbol of your trajectory and knowledge that our Clients will look for and value when making hiring decisions. Once you complete any of the badge programs you will be awarded a certificate of completion and a Badge that we will include in your Virtual Latinos profile and in the PDF that clients receive when you apply to a job position. You will also be able to showcase them wherever you want to brag about your accomplishments and newly acquired skills.
We currently have prepared a total of 5 different badge categories, each divided into multiple levels (Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum). These levels represent different skills and topics you can acquire. The more badge programs you apply to and complete, the more you will learn, and the more attractive your profile will be! We will be working on adding more Badge Programs to the list in the future.
- Marketing: Marketing Foundations (Bronze), Digital Marketing (Silver), Email Marketing and Automation (Gold), Content Marketing (Platinum)
- Advertising: Social Media Foundations (Bronze), Instagram & Facebook (Silver), Twitter, LikedIn, Youtube (Gold), Digital Media Analytics (Platinum)
- Graphic Design: Design Fundamentals and Canva (Bronze), Logo Design (Silver), Adobe Package Basics (Gold), Adobe Package Intermediate (Platinum)
- SEO: SEO (Platinum)
- Google Ads: Google Ads (Platinum)
These exclusive courses will be launched one-by-one and announced accordingly on all our communication platforms (Telegram and Email). Starting with the Marketing Bronze Badge, premiering on January 3, 2022. Registration will be open starting on December 06, 2021 and will last for two weeks.

Why You Should Enroll to Earn a Badge
Enrolling in the Virtual Latinos’ Badge program will not only provide you skills and information on topics you might not have, but it will also help you catapult to your next professional step.
At Virtual Latinos, we believe that knowledge is key for professional advancement and improvement, and we want to provide that to the members of our community.
In order to be eligible to apply to take the courses you must first:
- Apply to be part of our Virtual Latinos Community and be accepted
- Have completed all of the steps to have your Virtual Latinos profile ready
- Signed the Acknowledgment form
Note: Virtual Professionals that have not been hired will have priority in the selection process, but all members of the Virtual Latinos community will be able to apply and participate in the draw.
Having been selected for one badge does not automatically give you a slot in the next level badge program. You will have to register and win your space for each badge of your interest.
To be eligible to apply to a second, third or fourth level of any badge program, you must first complete the levels that precede it. Ex. To register in Marketing Silver you must have completed Marketing Bronze.
