Servicing Clients

The clients you will provide Customer Support Services to are often leaders in their industries; many are Fortune 500 companies with names you’ll recognize.  As such, they have exciting opportunities, as well as high standards for servicing and performance.

The sooner you complete the Application & Registration process, the sooner you’ll be able to gain access to these opportunities — and the quicker you can start earning an income from home.

You can work with world-class clients in the tax, vacation, office supply, and even theme park industries.

Client Certification Courses

Because our clients have such high standards for servicing and performance, before any of our CSPs can begin servicing a client program,  they must take and successfully complete a client certification course.   

The cost of the courses range between $19 - $250.  Client Certification courses are not paid by Assistlight but an investment the Individual Contractors (CSPs) make in themselves.  The is required by all clients in order to be able to service their account.  

The courses provide information on the client’s systems that CSPs will use during servicing, as well as the performance metrics laid out in the operative Statement of Work and other information about the client program. 

Much like a Doctor or Computer Engineer would invest in a college or certification course to become an expert in their field, our CSPs are required to do the same.  This helps you be successful in being one of our top performing CSPs.  

What to Expect:

Courses range anywhere from 28 days to 8 weeks in length. Each session is normally 4 hours long and in most cases an addition of approximately 2 hours of self-paced work - which may be required to be completed prior to the next day’s class.   100% attendance is required. Everything is virtual. Videos and audio components are built into the online experience. 

Make an Informed Commitment

The Course Certification experience closely reflects the real world. The Opportunity Announcement (OA) will provide you with all the information you need - including information about certification.

We use the OA as a guide to decide whether a given client program is the right opportunity for our CSPs.

Before Expressing Interest in a Client Opportunity,  we suggest that you,

  • -- Take the time to learn about the opportunity inside out. 
  • -- Read through the OA
  • -- Take the time to attend information sessions and ask questions BEFORE you make the commitment to the certification course. 
  • -- Pay attention to the technology and assessments that is required to be eligible to service the client.
