New York, NY (PRWEB) January 14, 2015
The AMA and Pharmaceutical Training Group, Inc. is pleased to announce that the CNPR Certification has been awarded a prestigious E-Learning Courseware award (ECC) by the PRMA Institute.
Thousands of entry level pharmaceutical sales candidates have benefited from the CNPR Certification program. Now conveniently available online and at over 300 universities; this accredited pharmaceutical sales training course educates and certifies pharmaceutical sales candidates for a career in pharmaceutical sales.
The NAPSRx® (National Association of Pharmaceutical Sales Representatives) has developed the CNPR program for the industry in 1998 to educate candidates so that they will be able to differentiate themselves from other candidates and meet job requiremements. The majority of entry level candidates do not know enough about the pharmaceutical industry, drug patents, FDA regulations, CDER regulations, laws governing the pharmaceutical industry, the anatomy, pharmaceutical terms and abbreviations, drug sampling rules, effective physician selling skills, who to contact at pharmaceutical companies, general interview questions, etc.
Qualified or aspiring pharmaceutical sales applicants should be familiar with clinical pharmacology, medical terminology, plus rules and regulations for selling pharmaceuticals to effectively sell to healthcare professionals. Applicants who have no previous pharmaceutical sales experience but who have acquired industry sales training, pharmaceutical product knowledge, managed care guidelines plus selling regulations will always be more qualified versus others without it. No successful pharmaceutical sales professional will be successful unless they have to up-to-date pharmaceutical industry education and product knowledge. Our association provides vocational pharmaceutical sales education (CNPR® Certification) that candidates add to their resume to attract pharmaceutical employers and qualify for pharmaceutical sales interviews.
The real power of the CNPR Certification is that sales professionals learn to communicate with healthcare professionals, physicians and pharmacists. The CNPR certification was recognized for the award after a rigorous evaluation of the CNPR course’s usability and instructional design. The award indicates that the CNPR Certification demonstrates the characteristics associated with excellent instruction.
Brad Sullivan a CNPR Certification Coordinator from the NAPSRx has said, “After spending over 13 years refining the course and several months developing the online version, it is hard how to put in words how much this certification means to the pharmaceutical sales industry. We have the world’s first and only certified course for entry level pharmaceutical sales candidates.”
