Sobel University Hosting Comprehensive Sales Course June 19-23

“If a dealer has someone doing a good job, but not meeting expectations, this class will get them fired up and on track," University President Randy Sobel says. “We recently had a first time student make $10,000 in their first month after attending class. It didn’t matter that they were new. They followed the steps and this green pea made $10,000. How much is it costing you to not send your sales staff through class?”

Comprehensive Sales Course is a "boot camp" class for new and experienced salespeople and managers. Students can expect a challenging eight hours of classroom instruction with homework every night and exams every day. Students are also put into role playing situations which helps sharpen their skills.

Dealers have reported a drastic increase in sales volume upon their staff’s successful completion of this class. With five experience levels, salespeople can expect a challenge whether it is their first attendance or their 15th. Dealers looking to enroll students must call as soon as possible as space is limited.
