If you have been considering a virtual, homebased career, then this may be the program for you!

The StaffCentrix Program is designed to train U.S. Military Spouses (at NO cost to you) to build successful businesses that are financially viable, portable, and personally gratifying. At present, virtual assistants trained by StaffCentrix are typically used by smaller businesses and independent professionals, such as insurance agencies, Realtors, professional speakers and trainers, smaller law firms and solo practitioners, etc.

This program is presented in phases—using a combination of on-site training and online support. Following the on-site workshops, each graduate receives sustained online support at the Staffcentrix Portal – an Internet-based community of colleagues and experts – for as long as he or she remains an “active-duty spouse.”

Spouses interested in applying for this program should possess at least the following:
-A minimum of two years of administrative support experience within the past eight years.
-Internet access and a good working knowledge of how to use the Web, email, attachments, browser, etc.
-A home office (or the space and resources to set up same).
-A computer with Windows 2000, XP, or Vista operating system and basic software applications (i.e., Microsoft Word, Excel, etc.).
-A strong desire for employment or an employment change.
-The ability and willingness to attend all phases of the Program
