Without a strong sales team in place, everything is affected. It is precisely for this reason NJMEP launched the Technical Sales training program with assistance from outside sources. Focused and refined to directly meet the needs of New Jersey’s Manufacturers, NJMEP set about finding the most dedicated members of the workforce interested in developing their Technical Sales skills.
Training was far from simple and engineered specifically with the needs of the manufacturer in mind. With seventy-six hours of training supervised by NJMEP trainer Kathy Durante, and twenty-five hours of general manufacturing, Society of Manufacturing Engineers-created online training, students were empowered with the tools necessary to exceed expectations. Here are some noteworthy graduates from this class.
