“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.”

- Dave Gravely
“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 be come an outside sales rep they will need to pass this certification as one of the requirements to become eligible for those positions.”
- Christoper Heling
