CERTIFIED ELECTRICAL PROFESSIONAL (CEP)
"We all need salespeople who understand the problem
and can deliver a solution that works brilliantly for both sides.”
― Chris Murray
Effective selling is still a skill that requires nurturing and intentionality. Investing in the professional development of a sales team gives a company a definite edge when it comes to the competition.
NAED has partnered with Florida State University to offer the CEP-Sales lifetime certification program. This program offers sales professionals the opportunity to learn, grow and revitalize their sales numbers and careers. This one-of-a-kind designation is a powerful way for them to validate their skill set and to elevate the level of professionalism in today's industry.
Multiple CEP-Sales designations are available:
CEP enhances the performance of professionals working in the electrical distribution industry by setting standards and assessing individuals against these standards. Upon graduation, students will earn a digital badge they can use on social media, business cards, and emails. Using the CEP designation in this way shows customers they can be confident that they are working with a committed and talented sales professional.
"One of the things in the industry that has been a shortfall is trying to mentor outside sales people. The CEP sales program seemed to be a program that we could use to develop the level of expertise for outside sales and also as a development program to bring people up to the outside sales role."
"I see it becoming a minimum requirement as we have developed it more and more for all of our staff to even obtain certain positions within the company. If they want to become an outside sales rep they will need to pass this certification as one of the requirements to become eligible for those positions."
