As a leading distributor, ADI is a large organization that moves at a very rapid pace. With so many new products and technologies becoming available in our industry, we understand the importance of keeping our sales professionals up-to-date so they can support all the technologies we offer. We want our sales team to serve as a valuable resource to our customers, and understand that we need to give them the right tools to do so. To continue providing exceptional service and the best experience to our customers, we have made the education of our staff a major initiative at ADI.

ADI University offers a blended learning approach using eLearning, web instructor-led industry certification training, and mentoring opportunities. Through our online portal, our sales staff has easy access to training programs that are personalized for them, and we can measure and track results.  ADI learning and development is not limited to eLearning. We also provide our employees with an extensive catalog of classroom learning led by internal subject matter experts as well as third parties like Dale Carnegie. Our training team collaborates with product management, sales, and support to deliver quality content that is relevant and engaging for our sales employees.
