HOW DOES THE CRS DESIGNATION WORK?
The Customer Service Manager Certification (CSMC) designation program is a self-paced training and certification program on customer service fundamentals, industry terms, and best practices. The CSMC program is self-study and 100% online. That means you get to set your own pace and take as long as you need.
With case studies and the appropriate coaching, participants will master the skills necessary for appropriately attracting, retaining, and creating loyal customers and clients in order to build a business with exceptional customer service. Best practices for all points of contact with customers will help to instill the confidence to handle each customer with care and respect.
