"We strongly encourage all our new hires to complete the CPC program in their first 90 days, and have second thoughts about anyone who can't do that.
Once they get their certificate we immediately print new business cards for them with the coveted initials after their name, and we use that status in our ads.
CPC training gives them a quick boost in knowledge and helps build their confidence.
Not everyone in the industry is an old fogey like me, but CPC training helps fill in the gaps"
