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.
If interested in applying to be a CSE, please follow these steps. Do NOT click the Pay Now button below, until after you apply and are notified by NAASE staff that you are approved. (The 1-time cost for our Certificate is $119)
- Send us an email requesting our CSE Application form.
- Fill out the form in full, including any resumes or Profile pages, etc.
- Wait to receive approval from NAASE; (decision typically made in 1-3 business days).
- Upon approval, use the PayPal feature to make appropriate payment.
