Certification | Training Fees

You are able to certify for as many opportunities as you are able to realistically service while maintaining each program’s requirements and metrics. (Remember you are responsible for setting your own hours.
*Typical client programs require a minimum of 15 service hours per week.
The Certification Fee is a small investment in your Work At Home Career and will be recouped within the first week of servicing your selected client program.
Why Isn’t Training Paid?

(Good help really is hard to find!)
In order to minimize any financial difficulties during the training period plan for Certifications that are available in conjunction with your current job such as evening classes until you start earning service revenue.

Training Reimbursement is processed immediately once the agent has successfully worked for 14 business days.
100% Class Attendance | Successful Certification = 100% Reimbursement
80-90 % Class Attendance + Successful Certification = 50% Reimbursement
0-70% Class Attendance + Successful Certification = Reimbursement Not Available.
