April 17, 2015 – Some 2,747 retail garden centre employees have taken advantage of the free Certified Retailer Training Program from Proven Winners so far this spring.

An innovative interactive map provides a live dashboard of certification progress across North America. These trained employees are now ready to hit the ground running, armed with the confidence to sell and useful knowledge of the new Proven Winners lineup for 2015.

There is still time for retailers to take advantage of this free staff-training offer and earn great rewards if they act quickly to get certified.


Each year, the certified training video takes a different slant in an effort to create a well-rounded education base for those who take advantage of this training opportunity.

New for 2015, the content is built around the most frequently asked questions retailers say they are asked by customers as well as a focus on new annual, perennial, and shrub introductions. The feedback has been highly positive among those who have completed the training.

Certified employees become an active voice among retailers in the Proven Winners network where their feedback is highly valued. Certified garden centers are also given priority listing in their local area on the Proven Winners web site.

Most importantly, trained, knowledgeable staff can better assist customers and increase sales.
