PA Courses

Our PA Courses are aimed at people looking to move into a PA role or existing PAs looking for a certified PA training course which will also improve their efficiency and build their CV.

We have three-day and five-day PA Courses and a full PA Diploma version, including MS Office certification and training. Saturday and some evening versions are also available.

PA Courses in Virtual Classrooms

We also offer introduction level, PA level and Executive PA training elsewhere on this site.

The virtual and live classroom courses are delivered and practically based on live and very experienced PA trainers who have been training PAs for several years. Our PA Courses have the correct mix of interactive learning, practical exercises and skills covered to ensure our delegates gain job readiness at the end of their training course. Our training has been expertly designed to make our courses very employer-focused.

Souters was established in 1988 and had been running live classes continuously.

“I attended this course to refresh and enhance my PA skills. It was an intense week of classroom-style learning, together with practical typing tasks. The tutor was competent and delivered the training extremely effectively. I will definitely be able to apply the skills I have learnt in my PA role.” – Student on PA Course
