Administrative assistants often work long hours in offices. They help companies stay compliant with current regulations, keep everyone on task and on schedule, greet customers and clients by phone and in person, act as the outward persona of the company, file documents and keep everything running smoothly. It's no exaggeration to say administrative assistants are often the heart of an office. They have extremely important jobs. In many cases, they determine schedules and are the first people customers and clients encounter. Administrative assistants can help a business succeed if they have the proper training and the right tools.

Why Online Training for Administrative Assistants?
Administrative assistants are busy and not every company can afford to send their office professionals away for training. Online training is advantageous because it is a budget-friendly and flexible solution. Administrative assistants interested in taking their career further or companies interested in ensuring their admin staff has the training support needed can take advantage of online training.
Online training allows administrative assistants to work at their own pace and in their own time. They can study on the job, after work, during a commute or any time they have a few moments. Online training is also highly flexible. Administrative assistants can choose to study topics that are most important to them and can pick and choose a personalized course of study to follow — all without having to commute to and from classes. The Right Training for Administrative Assistants
Properly trained administrative assistants can help a company succeed, but what is the right training? Training should be:
- Designed to teach the way administrative assistants learn best. Some individuals learn best in a group while others excel through self-guided study. Lorman Education Services offers articles, e-books, audio books, MP3s, case studies, white papers, on-demand training and other formats, so each student can learn at the pace they are most comfortable with and in the way that works for them.
- Thorough. Generalities may not work because different office professionals will be at different stages of their career. A thorough program allows students to target areas where they need help. Lorman Education Services offers thousands of articles and training materials for office professionals to choose from, ensuring each professional can choose the materials that work for them. There are also industry-specific articles and training materials available.
- Designed by professionals. Lorman Education Services training materials are developed by industry leaders, ensuring training is relevant and on-target.
- Updated often. We release new materials every month, ensuring information about technology, compliance, best practices and other areas of office administration is always comprehensive and up-to-date.
