The Customer Service Representative training program teaches the key skills needed to become a Certified Customer Service Representative and preparation for the RISE UP Certification Exams for Customer Service and Sales Credential, Advanced Customer Service and Sales Credential, and Retail Management Certification. Since it costs a business more to acquire a new employee than it does to retain an existing one, it makes sense that a business must do everything it can to support and satisfy existing employees. Handling complaints effectively and efficiently can result in increased customer loyalty. Today’s Customer Service Representatives (CSRs) and support centers have a vital role to play in ensuring customers’ needs are addressed in an effective, efficient manner.
