Top-Rated Retail Training & Courses to Maximize Productivity

We know first-hand what managers and executives do in the retail space. Our content creators have many years of management experience in retailing, consumer goods, logistics and related digital technology.

What the stats say: According to Gallup’s State of the Global Workplace: 2022 Report

All this contributes to staff churn, which is high and continuing to rise.

Our industry training programs are designed to help employers turn the tide on falling engagement and wellbeing in the workplace.

Capability academies are a modern take on employee training. They serve specific business objectives with content focused on addressing key company needs, by integrating:

  • Educational content 
  • Training programs 
  • Digital tools 
  • Mentors and coaches

The targeted approach of capability academies distinguishes them from corporate universities, which often have far more generalized content than a company can use. 

Capability academies make for a more valuable learning experience and makes it easier to upskill deaprtments or teams.. This gives businesses a much easier to measure, quantifiable return on investment.

Capability academies give CEOs an edge - and help businesses to maximize their potential in a fiercely competitive marketplace.

What This Means For Your Business

Capitalize on this forward-thinking approach, and equip your workers with new skills faster than competing companies can. 

The fruits of your employee labors here will show in your company’s customer service - and you can expect word to spread about the high-quality experience your business offers to employees and customers alike. 

All in all, our capability academies can help you to rein in costs while enhancing your company’s brand - its most significant asset.

We understand that you might continue to have some questions about our retail training programs. Detailed below are answers to select questions that we have often been asked about retail training.

Customer Testimonials


" I found the Fundamentals of Consumer Goods course very useful and it helped me to have a deep understanding of the core components and processes of Consumer Goods industry. "


Lead Solution Engineer, SalesForce




" We have a long-standing relationship with Martec and they are our prime provider of online Merchandise courses. Their courses are comprehensive and the online system is easy to navigate. The webinar sessions supporting the courses are certainly helpful as this gives our staff opportunity to clarify points mentioned in the course that they need more information about. Additionally, the hands on activities during the webinar sessions are challenging and Brian effectively walks the participants through the learning objectives of the activities. "


Senior Learning & Development Specialist, Dubai Duty Free


" I recently took Martec’s “Building the Business Case and ROI” eLearning course and found it very informative and helpful. The information is presented in a very organized, straightforward and clear manner. Martec shows you how to build a solid ROI model using commonly available financial statements and metrics. ROI estimates are often requested by prospects during sales cycles and what we took away from the training will enable us to help prospects justify investments and accelerate sales cycles. "
