8 CMTSE DIRECTORY 2017 – 2018 Work with a CMTSE In order to be competitive, manufacturers are faced with increasingly challenging decisions about the technology available to them to improve throughput and productivity, and about those they can rely on for the expertise they need to make the best decisions for their unique applications. Manufacturing technology equipment builders, and their distributor and integrator partners are aware of the competitive pressures affecting manufacturers in the marketplace today. CMTSEs stand above the rest in their knowledge and experience in the industry. Created in 1993, the Certified Manufacturing Technology Sales Engineer (CMTSE) Certification program was born out of an industry need for a higher level of education in technical and sales expertise in order to best meet customer needs. Individuals eligible to register for the CMTSE training and certification process are required to have prior sales experience in the manufacturing industry. They must learn a standard, industry-based curriculum and successfully complete a final exam that measures their broad knowledge of manufacturing technology and processes, specific machine tool controls and technologies, as well as professional sales skills and an understanding of business economics and sales professionalism. The CMTSE credential is the only industry-recognized professional certification program that acknowledges individuals who possess the skills and knowledge needed to perform effectively as manufacturing technology sales engineers and trusted business advisors to their customers. CMTSEs make a commitment to their profession through applied learning and testing of an extensive body of knowledge in professional manufacturing technology sales. The CMTSE certification is not a one-time event but a lifelong commitment. To maintain their professional credential, all CMTSEs must recertify every three years. To do so, they are required to submit documentation of ongoing professional development through a variety of activities, including training that augments their proficiencies. CMTSE—ask about it, look for it, expect it from your manufacturing technology sales representative. For more information about the CMTSE program, visit, ALABAMA Glenn E.
