Certified Sales Engineer© [CSE]

Become a recognized leader in technical sales, via NAASE’s “CSE” designation.



Unlike many other professions, sales engineers do not have a specific professional designation (like PE, CSI, CCE, PMP etc) to include after their name to display their knowledge/qualifications. We at NAASE are changing that via our new “CSE” [Certified Sales Engineer©] offering.

Open To All Industries

Sales engineering certification is open to all NAASE members, who qualify. Every industry is applicable, including but not limited to:

  • IT & Computer hardware/software
  • Building Materials / construction
  • Manufacturing / equipment
  • Hi-Tech / Microchip
  • Biopharma / Medical
  • Other technical services


There are several prerequisites needed in order to become a CSE, but none of them require a formal written exam. NAASE bases its CSE program on vetting several candidate factors. If needed, there may be a phone consultation/interview.

One of the key requirements is that the candidate must have received a B.S. (or Business-related B.A.), plus have at least 3 years of professional sales engineering experience. (B.S/B.A requirement can be waived with 4+ years of relevant experience).Other factors include posted LinkedIn Endorsements and Recommendations, etc.
