Frequently Asked Questions

What is a virtual assistant?

A virtual assistant is a person who provides various services to entrepreneurs and businesses from a remote location. There are a host of things that virtual assistants can do, including social media management, managing calendars, appointments and emails, preparing reports, personal tasks like booking hotels and restaurants, simple digital marketing tasks, and a lot more.
In short, you’re like a personal admin manager working for a client from overseas.

How do the courses work?

The lessons are all in one site and can be accessed any time of the day. We have recognized that each student in a class has different times when they are free, so we created the lessons and designed them where anyone can just study at their own pace and time when they are free.

But we meet as a group online weekly for Freelancing Course and 2 times for the other courses (orientation and evaluation), Philippine Time. This live group coaching is the time for evaluation, discussions, Q&A, etc. This is also recorded for those who can’t join, so that they can still be updated.

Will you refer me to clients after I finish the course?

Part of your assignments is to submit proposals through freelancing platforms with the coach’s guidance. FVA’s commitment is that we will not leave you until you have your first client. We also have a training-to-hiring program for all of our graduates.

Is there a certificate after the course?

Yes, absolutely. You will get a certificate after finishing the course within the period prescribed. You can use the certificate as your portfolio anywhere since we are DTI and BIR registered.

I didn't go to college. Will I still be qualified?

Definitely! Freelancing doesn’t discriminate against non-college goers. It’s open to everyone as long as you have the determination!

Do I need a laptop? I don't have one.

Using a computer is recommended because you will have application assignments all throughout the course. I have students who work on their lessons and assignments in internet cafes and computer shops, until they get clients. By then, they will have the money to get their own laptop.

I have full-time work/class

No worries! Our lessons are all pre-recorded and you can do them at your own pace, anytime and anywhere you are available.

I'm a newbie. I'm not a techie. What course should I take?

We recommend taking the Freelancing Course. This course is specially designed for newbies. You will be coached on how to set up your freelancing profiles and accounts and will learn the basic skills needed to start working online.

How long will it take to get a client?

It varies. This will be the most realistic answer you can get. A lot of my students get hired before we even finish the course. But this doesn’t happen to everyone. Becoming a freelancer doesn’t happen overnight, so you would need to show constant determination in order for you to get a client. Others get hired after the course, others take months. But as long as you show your determination, you will get your client. And FVA will be here to help you achieve that, even after you finish your course. Again, our ultimate goal is for you to get a client.

I don’t have any knowledge or background about online jobs or freelancing

That’s okay. Our course is specially designed for newbies and this will help you develop skills to work online!

Do I need to be fluent in English?

Some niches require pristine grammar like copywriters, proofreaders and article writers.

But not every freelance job requires perfect English. For some, like graphic design and cover design/layout need only BASIC English to be a freelancer.

How can I be sure that you are legit?

Please check the reviews on our page, our hired students album, and our website.

Can I refund/transfer my enrollment?

Paid slots are non-refundable and non-transferrable (to other courses or another person)
