Why study an ISM course?
ISM qualifications are as perfect for those aspiring to a career in sales as they are for those who already have one and are looking to move up the ranks. Taught at five different levels, all of the courses ISM offers tackle a wide range of sales knowledge and skills, all of which are key to a lucrative career in the field. For those not yet familiar with it, ISM provides Level 2-4 courses, consisting of beginner to intermediate material as well as practical preparation for starter jobs in sales. Levels 4-6, on the other hand, are perfectly suited to those with their sights set on a promotion within their current sales career. Whichever category you fall into, an ISM qualification gives you the edge you need to stand out from your competition.
Because the ISM course content has been designed in partnership with employers, salespeople and sales trainers themselves, the things you are taught in the course of your choice are all relevant and practical to the workplace and, unsurprisingly, highly-regarded by employers. Boasting the skills and knowledge that ISM courses offer is a proven way to increase your earning potential and get ahead in your career and the world of work in general.

- Sales Executive
