Want a Sales Person Who Can Hit the Ground Running?
The Argentum Sales Counselor Certificate Program is designed to help build knowledge and competencies so that senior living professionals are able to speak with common vernacular from the very beginning of their employment, which leads to better performance, job satisfaction and retention. As an added benefit, the curriculum saves your company 2-3 days of training, so that you may refocus your invaluable onboarding efforts on skills development, in depth sales execution training, case studies, and competitive differentiators.
Certificate Program Details and Fees
The sales certificate curriculum covers the 3 fundamentals of successful sales:
- Industry Knowledge
- Marketing Strategy
- Consultative Sales Process
The Argentum Sales Counselor Certificate Program includes internet-based training modules. Participants may view the training in as many sessions as needed, and should expect to spend about three to four hours total taking the training course.

- New Employees: Learn knowledge critical to best serving prospective senior living residents
- Current Employees: Round-out knowledge and add a resume talking point

What Are They Saying?
“Commonwealth Senior Living has found the certificate program incredibly worthwhile. For sales professionals with little experience within senior living, we experienced a significant ROI as these individuals onboarded more succinctly and expeditiously compared to others with similar experience who had not completed the program. We are committed to building this certificate into our formal onboarding plan, as this program has already led to the success of our new sales professionals early in their tenure.”
—Kristy Ruppe Craddock, SVP of Sales & Marketing, Commonwealth Senior Living
“Being fluent in our industry’s terminology early on allows a sales counselor to easily guide the prospect through each of the steps present in the transition from life at home to life in a community. I found tremendous value in decreasing this learning curve, and would recommend the Argentum Senior Living Sales Counselor Certificate program as a great course for any sales professional, specifically those who come to us from outside the industry.”
