“The HD Supply sales team sells MRO, non-traditional healthcare products, into the healthcare space. AMS training has enabled them to have a better understanding of the overall dynamics of the healthcare marketplace and enabled them to be more valuable in providing solutions to meet their customer’s needs. Even tenured sales reps and sales leaders have found the learnings enhanced their customer relationships with the added value and knowledge they bring to the customer.”

Sales Training Manager, Sales Effectiveness

“The HIDA AMS program is instrumental to the foundational training for our Field Sales Development Program (FSDP,) the bench program for our Primary Care sales team. While HIDA has always been an excellent resource for all of our Account Executives, I’ve been able to leverage content such as Selling Distribution Value and Probing & Listening as building blocks for our newest team members. Every FSDP rep and alum is HIDA Accredited in Medical Sales—creating value and trusted partnership with our customers from day one!"


Course Feedback

  • “I found the course work to be extremely useful and highly applicable to what I do on a daily basis as a distributor rep. It is informative and will translate well with customer interactions.”
  • “I’ve been in diagnostics sales for almost 24 years. I feel like I’ve been through virtually every type of sales training in some form or another throughout my career. The John Costigan phone-selling webinar series was the single best and most useful sales training I’ve ever gotten. I have concrete tips and feel more inspired which rarely happens after sales training seminars.”
