Our Flagship Training Program
We know you want to grow your territory and business, which can be a struggle without the right tools and training. With so many different aspects to running a successful business from legal to human resources to line profitability, and developing relationships with your principals, it can be very overwhelming.
However, it doesn’t have to be this way.
At MRERF, we’ve been training independent sales reps for over 35 years. We understand the rep world, which is why we developed the 3-year Certified Professional Manufacturers’ Representative (CPMR) program; to provide you with the tools you need to succeed.
