The First Online Virtual Assistant Certification Exam Developed by 713Training.Com

In order to test the bankruptcy petition preparation skills of attorneys, paralegals, legal staff and virtual bankruptcy assistants, 713Training.Com has developed the first exam that is administered entirely online. This allows debtor bankruptcy professionals nationwide to access the exam and measure their skills accurately and proficiently.

Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) January 4, 2010 -- The first online exam has been developed for virtual assistants by Victoria Ring, Certified Paralegal and Bankruptcy Specialist. The Virtual Bankruptcy Assistant Certification Exam is comprised of fifteen separate quizzes that measure a variety of skills including an accurate analysis of the bankruptcy petition preparation skills of the virtual assistant. This all important skill is a must for debtor bankruptcy attorneys, which is a fast growing segment in our society at this time.

Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy filings are increasing at an alarming rate. According to PACER (public access court electronic records), for the 30-day time period covering March 1, 2009 through March 31, 2009; a total of 134,282 bankruptcy petitions were filed in the United States with 99,575 of those being Chapter 7 and 33,123 being Chapter 13. The bankruptcy court was open 22 days during the month of March 2009, so this averages out to be 6,104 petitions filed per day, 254 per hour or 10.58 per minute.

That is why a test to determine the skill set of virtual assistants who work for bankruptcy attorneys needed to be developed. It is imperative to protect debtors, attorneys and the court system from poor quality work that can result in innocent people losing their homes and other assets. In the past, the debtor bankruptcy field has been neglected when it comes to training and furthering their education. Bankruptcy attorneys were forced to learn from other attorneys and the office staff simply learned from making mistakes and fixing them.

Now that debtor bankruptcy is becoming such a growing field, many attorneys are starting new practices or adding a bankruptcy department to their current law firm. But with the lack of educational training materials, the job may seem impossible for most attorneys.

713Training.Com, a company that is dedicated to the training, education, and support of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy attorneys nationwide is the leader in the development of training materials specifically for this market. The VBA Certification Exam can be used by the virtual assistant who needs certification to work for bankruptcy attorneys; as well as attorneys who want to use the exam for pre-employment testing of their office staff as well as virtual assistants.
