A salesman is an ambassador of his company to the external world. He leaves a lasting impression on those with whom he interacts and form an opinion about the company from his behavior. By no stretch of imagination, we can consider the production staff or, for that matter any other staff of the organization wielding the same influence as the salesman does.
Besides, selling demands creativity, doggedness and initiative. Thus, a successful salesman should have a combination of brain and brawn. As he is to be self-directed, he needs strong motivation.
A salesman needs human relations skill much more than others. As he interacts with a variety of people in diverse situations, he must show diplomatic skills and composure. He should show tact and intelligence while dealing with his customers.
The Certified Sales Management Professional program provides frontline sales personnel and managers with the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to drive bottom line performance. It focuses on improving organization and forecasting skills, as well as other technical competencies aimed at guiding salespeople towards higher performance.

Learning options for any study style


Ideal for self-starters and those with unpredictable schedules. The self-study option means you can learn on your own anytime, day or night — whatever best accommodates your schedule. The CPIM Learning System includes both printed books and access to an online, interactive platform.


Ideal for individuals who prefer a structured study environment. Instructor-led classes are offered by approved ASCM partners worldwide. These traditional classes combine the Learning System with the guidance of an APICS-recognized instructor and provide valuable peer discussion and networking. 


Ideal for those who want instructor support but can’t attend classes at a set time. Instructor-supported online classes are offered through Fox Valley Technical College. You will be assigned one instructor for the 16 week course, but there is no required meeting time, so you can complete assignments on your own schedule.

Corporate and group

Ideal for small and large groups for self-study or instructor-led classes. We’ll help you organize groups of self-study or instructor-led classes at your facility or virtually. Whether participants are local to one site or geographically dispersed, structured learning and online group reporting will help track progress and optimize your training investment.
