The annual Tennessee Tech University Pharmaceutical Sales Training and Certification program will be held on Tuesday, March 30, at 6:30 p.m. in TTU’s Roaden University Center Multipurpose Room. Hosted by the American Pharmaceutical Sales Association, the program is open to the community, but space is limited and pre-registration is required.

The cost of the three-hour program is $140, and upon completion, participants will have an opportunity to earn an APSA certification that can be used as a springboard to securing pharmaceutical sales employment.

APSA offers the only certified training program that is geared to help job seekers enter into pharmaceutical sales in a live classroom setting.

The curriculum consists of a pre-hire and post-hire overview, role playing and tactical issues, pharmaceutical time management, labeling laws, FDA functional laws, physician sampling and detailing, medical terminology, and a detailed question and answer forum.

All college students, alumni, and local community members who earn their certification will be admitted into the APSA’s PharmaLink© program until a job is earned.
