The Advanced Certificate for the Executive Assistant: ACEA® is an intensive and interactive executive level training course.

The role of the Executive Assistant is on a journey and the responsibilities of this highly demanding and visible role continue to grow exponentially. ACEA® equips current and aspiring Executive Assistants with the skills and knowledge they need to excel.

To become a true ‘business partner’ to an Executive, it is imperative that Executive Assistants have a deep understanding of the business and their Executives’ role & responsibilities. Organisations are looking for Assistants that possess ‘Executive Level’ business acumen and skills now more than ever.

** Now available online** Traditionally delivered in classroom format, we have responded to demand and developed a modular online course, which will cover the same subject matter but delivered virtually. This course is very interactive, and as we know the ‘shared experience’ is also very important, we have worked hard to ensure that this is maintained.

Uniquely delivered from an “Executive Led” perspective, the ACEA® course focuses on elevating the role of the Executive Assistant, by delivering a fundamental understanding of business and organisations, as well as practical skills, including:

  • Strategic thinking
  • Corporate visions & missions
  • Understanding the linkages between strategy, projects & operations
