NAED provides both certification and certificate programs. By setting and enforcing standards for certification, the Certified Electrical Professional (CEP) and the Certified Sales Professional (CST) seek to assure the public that those holding the credentials posses the knowledge, skills, and competency for quality in electrical distribution sales. Unlike certificate programs, the CEP and CSP programs are experience based. They are designed to measure an individual's application of knowledge and skills by those with real-life experience in this role.
