Expert Committee

Education and knowledge are of immense value in the MI industry as elsewhere. As the public sector offers insufficient specialist training and opportunities for continued training, our Training Committee mediates between the industry and its retailers and/or apprentices. The expert committee consists of at least three full members of the association and regularly meets twice a year. Its members jointly develop new ideas and concepts for seminars, workshops and conferences at trainee, employee and manager level, with a focus on training in areas that are specifically relevant for retail and wholesale, such as sales communication.

The  Committee’s largest project to date is the conception and establishment of the ‘Certified Music Merchant’ continued training programme, which has been running since 2008. The expert committee constantly reviews the concept and training measures for topicality and relevance to the industry, and updates and develops them accordingly.
