The SCHEELS University system is the foundation of developing experts for our company. We have used this form of training for over 25 years! We know that hands-on, experience-based training is the best way to teach our experts about the products they will be selling.

The SCHEELS University system is dedicated to giving our associates the opportunity to improve their knowledge, experience level, and skill with the products we sell. When a customer walks into a SCHEELS store, they want to talk with an associate who is experienced with the products they are looking to buy.

What do you want the biggest takeaway to be for associates who attend?

scheels university Lindsay

The biggest takeaway for an associate attending a SCHEELS University is the knowledge of how a product works and performs.The first-hand experience experts gain while using the product allows them have the tools necessary to assist customers in finding the right product for their needs.

When an associate attends a university, we want to provide them with an experience that they will be able to use while helping customers on our sales floor. We have done our job when a sales associate is able to say, “When I was at SCHEELS University, I used this product, and this is what my experience taught me.”
