CPMR – Certified Professional Manufacturer’s Representative
May 2 CDT - May 7 CDT
Certified Professional Manufacturers Representative (CPMR) is for anyone providing outsourced sales functions to manufacturers, regardless of industry. It is a professional designation earned by an individual, not a firm.
I just wanted to drop you a note about my experience with CPMR. I attended the 101 course virtually last week. It was a great experience and use of my time. I learned many things that I will use going forward in my career as a rep. Because I attended virtually I think I missed some of the after hours collaboration and relationship building. I plan to attend 201 in person next year. – Josh Metzker, Hood and Company
