Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 01, 2011
360training.com, the premier provider of online compliance and occupational training, announced the launch of its new “Industrial Distribution Online Course” , developed in partnership with the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) and the Texas A&M Industrial Distribution program, the recognized leader in industrial distribution research and education.
The new Industrial Distribution Training courses are designed for individuals and companies involved in the wholesale and general distribution of electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and roofing materials. Drawing on TEEX and Texas A&M’s expertise and extensive experience, the “Distribution Online Series” covers primary supply chain concepts: working with manufacturers, understanding distributor operations, solution-based selling, and quality management. The courses demonstrate application of the concepts through real-life examples.
“We’re launching these industrial distribution courses, specially developed by TEEX, to enable individuals and companies to capitalize on their existing supply chain and consumer networks in the construction industry,” says Alex Sayyah 360training.com’s VP of E-Commerce and Marketing. “There are no prerequisites for these easy-to-absorb learning experiences, which are even easier-to-implement,” Alex adds.
The 4-course program includes: Introduction to Distribution (Overview of the distribution industry and functions: Sales, Operations, Finance, and Technology); Principles of Distribution Sales (Overview of the solution selling process: identifying prospects, getting appointments, interacting with customers, closing the sale, and starting your relationship with the client); Quality Processes (Defining quality, a history of the US quality movement, and the importance of measuring, improving, and ensuring quality across the supply chain); and Manufacturer-Distributor Relationships (Measuring and managing communication, trust, and commitment to improve supply chain relationships).
360training.com’s new industrial distribution training offering is available on a per-course basis or as a bundled package. For more information, visit: http://www.360training.com/corporate-solutions/industrialskills/.
