SEMA Data Co-op Congratulates Certified Reps

By SEMA Editors

More than 50 manufacturer's reps became certified ambassadors of the SEMA Data Co-op.

Earlier this year, the SEMA Data Co-op (SDC) announced the SDC/MRN Certification Program for manufacturer's reps to become certified ambassadors of the SDC. Reps are uniquely positioned between manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers. Therefore, there is a need to ensure they understand the benefits of the SEMA Data Co-op program and can communicate them accurately to the marketplace.

To qualify for certification, manufacturer’s reps completed four training modules, each one having an exam at the end, to confirm their comprehension of the materials.

“I am pleased to say this program has been a big success, and we have more than 50 reps who are now certified, many of whom were acknowledged at the recent PWA Conference,” said Jim Graven, director of membership for the SEMA Data Co-op.
