Imparta is delighted to be able to offer Association of Professional Sales (APS) accredited qualifications to its clients. In order to become APS accredited, Imparta’s consultative sales training methodology went through a rigorous evaluation and mapping onto the APS qualification framework. The Imparta Consultative Selling Skills (CSS) programme mapped seamlessly with the APS Level 3 Qualification. The APS also concluded that on completion of the Creating Client Value (CCV) programme offered by Imparta, learners can be awarded an APS Level 4 Diploma in Sales.

Ben Turner, General Manager of the APS, commented, ‘We are very pleased to be working with a company of Imparta’s reputation, and to recognise their programmes through our qualification framework. We were hugely impressed by the thoroughness, depth and quality of Imparta’s sales training programmes. The APS is focused on bringing the highest standards of professionalism and ethics into the sales training industry, and working very closely with companies like Imparta helps us achieve this.’

Richard Barkey, Imparta CEO and Founder, explained, ‘Many sales organisations are keen that their salespeople are recognised for their sales skills and the comprehensive training they have completed. The APS gives these clients the opportunity to provide this recognition from a body that is at the forefront of raising standards in the sales industry.’
