The need for training to meet the challenges of today’s competitive retail environment is widely recognised, but to find affordable, effective programmes is not easy.
However, membership of AIS can help in this area and the AIS training department provides a comprehensive range of training and professional development activities.
Cost effective seminars and training courses are planned and organised to meet the specific needs of the membership. These events encompass the whole range of employee and knowledge development within retailing across both technical and interpersonal skills. Courses are available at varying levels and include topics such as selling skills, visual merchandising, product specific seminars and executive master classes focusing on key business issues. Supplier’s visits are also organised exclusively for members to increase understanding of various product areas.
