Which Type of Training Event Is Right for You?

January 14, 2023


Virtual or In-Person? 

Training events continue to grow in availability and format. Professional training shows your initiative to excel in your profession, not only to your current employer but to yourself and any other potential employers. With so many administrative training and certification programs out there, ASAP wants to share some insight on each of the types of training formats currently available. 


ASAP offers hundreds of on-demand webinars to choose from, so you can find the training you need at a time that is convenient for you. ASAP also offers regular live webinars. See what live webinars ASAP have coming up here.


Attending in-person training events enables you to expand your professional and personal development by gathering with peers to learn, discuss challenges, share, create innovative ideas, and ignite motivation. ASAP offers two annual in-person training events.

Administrative Professionals Conference (APC)

ASAP has been hosting APC for 30 years, providing unparalleled education through sessions and workshops by professional trainers. We acknowledge the incredible diversity of the administrative profession and pull out all the stops to truly offer something for everyone.

Attendees have the opportunity to tailor their experience to meet specific training needs. You choose the sessions you attend based on your interest, abilities, and goals for professional growth.

This year's conference will be held from October 22nd - 25th in Las Vegas, Nevada. Learn more.

EA Ignite

EA Ignite is one of ASAP’s newest and most desired training conferences. EA Ignite is for executive assistants looking to grow into or expand their role as a strategic partner. 

The scope of work for executive assistants is both broad and immersive. On-the-job training is limited, and the role requires advanced skills, in specific areas. Our training sessions are focused on trending topics like project management, strategic planning, and critical thinking. 

EA Ignite is an exclusive training event limited to 400 like-minded peers. Take advantage of immersive training with today’s leading experts and spark conversations with other attendees around today’s innovative processes. If you’re someone who supports a C-suite level executive, then EA Ignite is for you. Learn more. 

Administrative professionals need to be at the top of their game to do their job well, and that requires training and certification. ASAP can help to get you there.
