SEMA Accessory Sales Professional (SASP) exam is based on the SEMA Professional Restylers Organization (PRO) Sales Training Manual and includes 50 multiple-choice questions focused on customer relations and sales strategy, salesperson knowledge and practices, business structure and sales processes, marketing and promotions, and SEMA PRO-recommended business practices and preparations.
   

For a limited time, SEMA members can take the SEMA Accessory Sales Professional (SASP) exam at no cost. The exam, which helps restylers update their business practices and gain a head start on boosting sales, is available free-of-charge until June 12.

The fee is waived to assist restylers and resellers who have been affected by the Coronavirus situation. With many SEMA members having experienced a disruption in their businesses and employees sheltering at home, now is an ideal time to obtain SASP certification. The designation validates expertise in   customer relations and sales strategies and positions professionals as leaders in the automotive restyling field. Nearly 150 restylers across the country have obtained SASP certification since the program was introduced about a year ago, and they are already reporting an increase in sales.

The five-section exam is based on the SEMA Professional Restylers Organization (PRO) Sales Training Manual and includes 50 multiple-choice questions focused on customer relations and sales strategy, salesperson knowledge and practices, business structure and sales processes, marketing and promotions, and SEMA PRO-recommended business practices and preparations.

“We’re hoping to assist members rise above challenges during this time of need,” said SEMA Director of Councils Denise Waddingham. “By participating in this program, employees can get updated tips and strategies to improve their business practices, better preparing them to return to work.”

Participants who pass the exam will also receive a sales professional certificate and badge to recognize them for their achievement while providing business owners with a valuable marketing edge.

Originally valued at $19.99, SEMA-member company employees can now take the exam for free and obtain the manual free of charge.
