Do you have to be trained or certified to be an organiser or virtual administrator?

There isn’t a qualification to become a professional organiser or virtual administrator. At present, we have a few DVD courses available for purchase that will offer an introduction to the profession as well as provide assistance towards setting up your own business.

Click here for more information regarding this DVD.



If you do want to become a Certified Professional Organiser, you can do this internationally. Certification is available through the Board of Certification for Professional Organizers (BCPOR).

NOTE: The certification program is for practicing professional organisers and a minimum of paid organising hours is required to qualify to sit the exam. Please research the CPOR site for full details.
