Description

Customer Service professionals need to know a whole lot more about the various ways of delivering services to the customers. It is no longer sufficient just to know the basics.

There have been so many changes in customer expectations and with service delivery, which is why we have created a completely new series of qualifications and certifications. The Customer Service Certification Pathway has been created to support students in their aim to gain relevant qualifications that practically apply to the ever-changing world of customer services.

The Customer Certification Pathway has three main parts: The Customer Service Foundation Program, Customer Service Intermediate Program, and the Customer Service Expert Program.

First, you need to complete the foundation level – The Customer Service Foundation Program which focuses on the fundamentals, general knowledge, terminology and basic concepts used in Customer Service. There is no examined component at this level. Completion of this program earns you 2 points toward your Customer Service Expert Certificate.

Next on the Certification Pathway is the Customer Service Intermediate Program which is made up of 8 courses. All Intermediate topics include (in no particular order):

·Communication Strategies

·Contact Centers

·Making Decision and Assertiveness

·Delivering presentations and Public Speaking

·Conflict Resolution

·Customer Relationship Management

·Sales

·Retail

From the eight Customer service Intermediate programs that are available, you will select a minimum of five programs to complete and progress to the Expert program, each Intermediate program will earn you 3 points toward your Customer Service Expert Certificate (minimum 17 points entry requirement). There is an examined component at this level. The exam consists of 50 multiple choice questions, related to the subjects you have chosen.

The next and final level is Customer Service Expert program. This is specifically aimed at Customer Service Supervisors and Managers who wish to consolidate their knowledge and experience and achieve formal recognition of their skills. There are two examined components for this program: three mandatory exercises and, one 20 questions multiple choice exam. This program is worth 5 points.

You must have a minimum of 22 points to achieve your expert certification.

Customer Service Foundation Program (2 points) + 5 x Customer Service Intermediate Programs (3 points each). Customer Service Expert Program (5 points) for a total of 22 Points.

Each course provides preparation for the exams and successful candidates receive a certificate.

Once you've completed the course, email our exam department at exams@artofservice.com.au to purchase your exam voucher and sit your final exam.
