Employee Training & Development

At Elliott Electric Supply, our employees are our greatest asset. We will provide you with the training and learning opportunities you need to be successful in your career with Elliott Electric Supply!

On-the-job Training

Your initial on-the-job training will teach you everything you need to know about your daily job responsibilities. Thereafter, we provide weekly in-store training meetings, frequent opportunities to attend formal training classes and webinars presented by manufacturers, NAED sponsored courses, and independent study courses and videos as on-going educational opportunities for you.

As new policies, procedures, and products are introduced, we will provide formal training to keep you informed. We also maintain a list of the industry's best online training resources along with our own 'eTraining' Web system, both of which will be available to you on our company intranet at all times.

NAED's Electrical Products Education Course (EPEC)

The EPEC course system is an industry-recognized training program designed to give sales people a professional breadth of knowledge about the products we distribute. Comprised of three levels, each with five modules, EPEC is the most comprehensive training program ever developed for our industry. EPEC is only recommended to individuals who have at least eight months of experience in electrical distribution.

As an employee, if you complete EPEC, we will pay for the course materials (~$1500) as well as award you cash bonuses for completion.

Leadership Development Program

The purpose of the Elliott Electric Supply Leadership Development Program is to provide a pool of highly qualified and knowledgeable individuals who are prepared to assume the role of Branch Manager, Operations Manager, or Salesperson as the need arises. The success of Elliott Electric Supply relies as always upon our employees, especially our managers and sales force.

Compass pointing toward leadership

How to Get Started

All recruits must have the ability to learn quickly, work hard, exhibit strong customer service skills, communicate effectively, be a problem solver, and be self-motivated.
