The Institute of Certified Sales Professionals (ICSPs), otherwise called Nigeria Sales Institute, is the representative body of Salespeople in Nigeria.
Established under CAM Act 1990, ICSP has been the domain for men and women who have made a deliberate and well considered choice to take up Selling as a laudable profession and to pursue it with all the professionalism , rigour, ethics and of course, the fun, it rightly deserves. It officially commenced operation in 2012.
The ICSP is committed to developing Sales talent and is also recognized as a Diploma awarding institution with a full range of qualifications in Selling and Sales Management.
Why You Need A Professional Sales Certification?
For years, Selling has been seen as an all-comers affair in Nigeria. Organisations hired ‘available’ people, sent them out with ‘targets’ to meet or ‘get fired,’ with little or no Sales training. This trend kept creating ‘Salesmen by chance’ rather than ‘Salesmen by choice,’ with all of its problems and failures.
Driven more by fear, rather than passion, a Salesman-by-chance may never be able to successfully unlock the Selling spirit locked up within him in his entire lifetime, thus exposing him to untold frustration and pains.
The ICSP Professional Sales Programmes are designed to shape and sharpen the right attitude that every would-be Salesman and those already in the practice require for a fulfilled career in Selling. It is an opportunity to become a professional Salesman by choice!
The modules for each programme were carefully selected, structured and customized for each individual Sales function as well as cater for the needs of the Nigerian Market and beyond.
The programmes are innovatively and uniquely envisioned to run on a study-as-you-go basis (i.e. self-study) and are therefore fully backed up with candidates-friendly tutorials (One Saturday per month at an ICSP Tutorial Centre nearest to you), 24/7 virtual classes for facilitator-candidate interactions, case studies on real-market issues and role-plays.
Whether you are gainfully employed, unemployed, under-employed, employable or presently unemployable, you live each day by selling something consciously or otherwise. Becoming conscious of what you are selling each day and acquiring the right attitude are the first steps towards an enviable life-style and financial freedom.
