Customer Service Professional (CSP) Certification
You are responsible for your Customer Service Professional (CSP) Certification fee. You must be certified as a Customer Service Professional or ‘CSP’ before choosing a Client. This is to make sure you are going to be able to perform as a customer service agent and can be offered client oppotunities. The CSP training can be done in 2 hours or you can take longer; it is up to you. The CSP Certification fee is usually $99.00, but can go as low as $0.00. *This will be explained to you further once you send in your resume. Best advice would be to plan for the highest fee of $99.00.
*VirtualScape Internet Solutions, LLC does not profit from ‘Customer Service Professional’ (CSP) Certification fees and has no control over whether the fee is $0.00 or $99.00 *on any given day.
Client certification is separate and in addition to the one day ‘Customer Service Professional’ (CSP) Certification. Once you have passed and been certified as a CSP, you will be able to see the different Client opportunities in detail and what each Client requires. You can then choose the client you wish to train with and service as a Virtual Customer Service Professional. Client training / certification fees can range from $19.00 – $199.00+ depending on the Client you choose.
*VirtualScape Internet Solutions, LLC does not profit from any training fees. Fees go directly to pay the Client Instructors that train the Call Center Professionals up to 4 hours a day for up to 10 weeks to work on their Company’s software and with their Company’s customers. Time required for training varies depending upon the client you chose to go with.
Why Do I Have to Pay for Training?
You will be working from your home. We are relying on you to be dependable. We have to make sure that only serious and conscientious applicants apply. The company can not afford to pay for training costs then have candidates come and go.
For candidates, this is the same as paying for technical training or college courses. If you want to become a Paralegal, Dental Assistant, Network Administrator and so forth, you pay for your own training and certification before applying for the job role.
This certification requires very minimal training fees and time commitment compared to other trade school certification programs or college course fees, plus the rare opportunity to work from your home base. It also guarantees work immediately after passing client certification. You can choose your hours online 2 weeks in advance for most clients before you even pass your final certification.
VirtualScape is a legitimate work from home opportunity, but there is a charge for becoming certified. You are required to do your due diligence and pass the required certification training. This is simply Call Center work just as you would assist customers in an on site Call Center environment, but this will be from your home office.
Your certification training is fully tax deductible along with many other tax breaks applicable to 1099 status such as: Phone & Internet service, % off home office used for work including electricity and more that you can not claim as a W2 employee.
