CERTIFIED VIRTUAL ORGANIZING PROFESSIONAL is a designated mark identifying an educational program designed to introduce and enhance the science of virtual organizing delivery dynamics to those within the organizing and related professional disciplines, which is now being made available by Sheila Delson, CPO-CD, CVOP, Master Trainer and leader in the professional organizing domain. This program offers educational and testing preparedness for certification in the professional organizer field and will be of value to those entrepreneurs who have made organizing and management, both business and personal, their chosen career path.
Within the CERTIFIED VIRTUAL ORGANIZING PROFESSIONAL program, students will find practical tools and resources that promote the study of the organizing science and an understanding of the various systems within this important discipline.
The act of becoming “certified” demonstrates an individual’s commitment to their profession. Certification demonstrates that you respect and value the importance of industry ethics and have a desire for continued learning.

The Virtual Organizing Training for Professional Organizer program provides candidates with extended industry knowledge, self-discovery, increased skills, client delivery methodology, and credibility that is built upon program integrity.
Certification as a Virtual Organizing Professional (CVOP™) indicates that you are committed to your work through continued learning and your support in sustaining the industry’s integrity through best practices. Becoming certified also signifies a higher level of training to perspective clients, making you an “expert.” Trends are showing that becoming an expert in your field may have a crucial effect on future business success. Superior knowledge-based training is recognized through Certification training and proves you as a committed and well-qualified provider as a Certified Virtual Organizing Professional™.
The accrediting body for the Certified Virtual Organizing Professional™ is offered through my parent company, FREEDomain Concepts, LLC, which is responsible for monitoring ethical standards within the CVOP body, as well as providing continued educational classes (CEU) to ensure accreditation integrity. Virtual Organizing (VO) is a sub-service within the field of professional organizing. VO requires a different delivery method from traditional on-site service delivery and requires a higher skill level that can only be achieved through appropriate training.
The Virtual Organizing Training for Professional Organizers program is international and supports Professional Organizers from a global perspective as well. We have graduated students from Canada, Netherlands, Germany, and South Africa. The Program is an intense, multi-media, live in-session, and independent performance program that runs throughout a 6-week period. All program candidates must meet the following criteria:
Stumped with how to continue to do the work you love while helping clients you want to serve? Offering virtual organizing services may be the solution you’ve been waiting for. You can offer this in addition to traditional organizing services, or it can become the only way you’ll work in the future.
Hi! I’ve been a Professional Organizer since 1994.
Being active in the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO) throughout my career has been important to me and I love giving back by teaching the unique skill set of Virtual Organizing to others.
When I have a deep passion and drive to serve, I throw myself into learning, leading and teaching.
I’ve served in many leadership positions over the years and have chaired and served on many committees.
I live in Florida now, but when I lived in New York State, I sat on the NAPO-NY chapter Board of Directors.
I was honored to receive the NAPO Founder’s Award in 2013.
While serving as ICD® Education and Certification Director, I was a co-developer of the industry’s first certification for Professional Organizers. At the same time, I was a co-developer of the respected ICD® Clutter-Hoarding Scale®.
I served ICD® as the past Education and Certification Director, and in that role was the co-developer of the industry’s first certification for Professional Organizers and co-creator of the ICD® Clutter-Hoarding Scale®.
I don’t like to toot my own horn; but you can see that I haven’t just been a Professional Organizer.
I’d love to help you as I’ve been honored to help so many others grow in their careers as Organizers and in the Professional Organizing industry.
And, as the person credited with creating the concept of Virtual Organizing, I’d love to have you join us if you feel the program is right for you right now.
