Smith & Wesson Corp. announced that it has entered into an agreement with the online training company 3point5.com to provide retail sales training support for the Company’s Smith & Wesson, Walther and Thompson/Center Arms products.
In addition, 3point5.com has also introduced new product training modules featuring interactive graphics and tests with information on handguns, shotguns and rifles written by published experts in the field.
Set up as an online campus, 3point5.com offers training to retail sales personnel and reinforces that training with innovative, online product-knowledge testing.
Under the new contracts, 3point5.com will build Web-based training sites for Smith & Wesson and two of its signature firearms brands – Walther and Thompson/Center. The training sites are expected to launch mid-summer.
“The relationship was a natural fit for Smith & Wesson,” said Tom Taylor, Vice President of Marketing for Smith & Wesson. “Sales of our products are facilitated by thousands of professional retail sales associates across the country.”
In addition to manufacturer-specific training, 3point5.com also provides generic product training on everything from hiking boots to skis to sleeping bags.
