I just wanted to tell others that this program is a wise investment. I recently took the exam and scored a 91%. Since passing the exam I have been receiving calls from companies wanting interviews. Most importantly, the certification and training has given me the confidence that I was lacking before.

I was just wondering if I should take the CNPR at a college or if I should just take it online through the NAPRx. I know there is a huge difference in pricing if I take it online. My buddy who is a pharmaceutical sales rep recommended me to take this certification program when I inquired about getting into this career. Any feedback would be appreciated.

I would take the CNPR online. From my view it was a very worthwhile program and I am now working in the industry. I took the course online and it was certainly cheaper that way and I could study when I had the fre time.

Well I would worry purchasing the 2007 or 2008 manual is not up to date, the current one is the 2012 manual, and that is the one the test is based off of. Can anyone tell me how long it took them to study for it, and the level of difficulty? I studied for the LSAT's before. It was hard, and when I took the practice test the timing part of it made it very difficult, although I felt I could of answered all the questions in time if given more time. Although the LSATs exam, you get 5 multiple choice answers, it is very lengthy.
Does anyone know if it's any easier or harder comparative to the LSATs?
I would appreciate any input. Thank you.

H.H. in Lawrenceville, Georgia said: I'm looking at getting the NAPSR online program's manual--- does anyone think that the manual would be sufficient enough in order to pass the TEST? Didn't know if I should order the practice quizzes too?? (Many years ago I was a pharmacy tech for 5 years and have recently left teaching.) I just want to get more knowledge and hopefully make my resume look a little better!! Appreciate any comments here.

I'm taking the program right now. I haven't taken the test yet, but think that the quizzes help me. I can email you the quizzes and the answers for $20. Let me know.

If anyone can help me as a recent college graduate- I'd appreciate you tremendously.

I'm a recent college grad and have always wanted to be in the medical industry. I have a retail sales background and my last two years of undergrad approached a physician who allowed me to do the marketing and public relations for his aesthetics practices- thus creating my own marketing consulting company where I helped both medical practices and estheticians grow their business. I did this in order to exit retail and gain some experience in the medical industry. During my time working for the medical practice, my interest in Pharm sales grew.

Is there anyone who can give me advice about getting into the industry? Know any companies who hire recent grads? Someone who can honestly tell me if the NAPRx exam is worth my times and money?

Im currently living in Chicago and rigorously looking for an opportunity in this great city!

I'd appreciate any and all replies about this!

I can be emailed at chandra@jaiageny.com

Brad: Hi that is good to hear. I did get the book the 2012 from NAPSRx directly. It's pretty interesting material!
I have a question though, you said that you work for a generics company, and those are pretty huge, but who do you actually sell the medication too, because it wouldn't be physicians? Do you sell to Walgreens/CVS, etc? Thanks for the info and support!

I would have to disagree that the NAPRX is a scam. They have very affective training programs for all level of pharmaceutical sales. My employer (inVentiv) certainly always looks to hire applicants who have completed pharmaceutical sales training (CNPR).

Go ask employers and HR staffers and they will all say that is a good idea to get educated and industry knowledge before applying or interviewing. The CNPR is very well respected within the industry.

There probably not many pharma sales jobs in North Dakota if that is why the above person is mad. Don't blame the trainers, just move to where the jobs are.

I am so glad you are speaking up. You have no idea of how deep this scam goes. They do discredit people that speak up. I have an entire file I have been compiling and forwarding information to the Attorney General. MRI had problems when they found their company was being falsely used to steer people to the program. Any reputable (or real) recruiter will have a contact phone number and web site. A recruiter telling you to get certified that will never speak to you is part of the scam.

If I was entry level I would apply right to the companies. Recruiters are typically used by pharmaceutical companies when they seek Speicalist Reps or Reps with existing physician relationships.

Recruiters typically only want entry level people if they are trained. Undertstand they get $$ for finding someone special. I would apply directly to the pharmaceutical companies directly.

Recruiters should also get their fees from the company and not from applicants. Do not pay recruiters as good ones get fees for placement. The only thing you need to do is present yourself professional, acquire all intustry training and then interview well.

I will ask my brother who's wife works as a pharmaceutical sales rep for a list of recruiters that she recommends. I will make sure that they are all employer paid.

The only thing you should pay for is your degree and education to qualify for job openings.

Brad Kenny in Chicago, Illinois said: With New $150M Headquarters, Astellas Seeks More Qualified Reps for US Sales Growth

With projected US growth to continue as Astellas prepares their new North American headquarters. In addition, more qualified representatives are needed nationwide to fill positions at various companies.

U.S. growth for Astellas helped account for the company’s 15.6% jump in net income during the year that ended March 31. The U.S. is part of Astellas’ “Americas” region, which saw revenues rise 6.7% in the 2011–12 fiscal year to $2.32 billion—part of a total nearly $12.4 billion in total global sales—paced by sales of its urinary disorder treatment Vesicare and the anticancer treatment Tarceva.

With the new headquarters, based in Illinois, a new light has been shed on the need for industry trained pharmaceutical sales representatives. The National Association of Pharmaceutical Representatives® (NAPRx®) has developed the CNPR® Certification program to educate candidates so that they will be able to differentiate themselves from other candidates. The majority of entry level candidates do not know enough

Wow, I just added these postings to the legal file I have compiled. I am also forwarding it directly to the VP of Legal Affairs at Astellas to get his input on your using Astellas to sell your program. This is not a smart move. I also happen to know that your "recruiters" suggest that candidates be certified by NAPRx or the Medical Sales College, which costs $10,000. I like how ordering from you is so much cheaper. Brad, please post a phone number or e-mail address. I'm sure people would like to speak to a real human behind this huge scam.

I AGREE WITH EVERYONE. THIS NAPSRX OR CNPR IS A SCAM BIG TIME. You are basically buying a textbook and that's it because no pharmaceautical compnay recognizes the certificate and could care less. They advertise jobs by linking to other websites and just posting jobs and half of these jobs don't even exist. I tried looking for half of these jobs and those companies do not exist in those locations. They do teach the course at Universities, but that doesn't mean anything. It only means the company was able to market their class well, but it won't help you what's so ever. BEWARE!

CNPR - Certified National Pharmaceutical Representative - Best Sales Positions Available

Certified National Pharmaceutical Representatives (CNPR) have one of the most lucrative positions in sales. Candidates looking to break into this industry successfully should be sure to include their federal certification number on their resume.

The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most lucrative business sectors as evidenced by its yearly billions in global industry revenue. As such, many careers have been developed to cater to the varying needs of the industry. One good example of such a career option is pharmaceutical sales, which is believed to be one of the most sought-after careers in the job market today.

The reason behind this trend is that pharmaceutical sales offers extraordinary salary potential, which may go as high as six-figures annually. Other amazing perks are special bonuses, a company car, flexible work hours, as well as unlimited opportunities for career growth.

Needless to say, many people who already have a career in sales are slowly but surely transitioning into pharmaceutical sales. If you’re one of those people who are ready to take your sales career to the next level, there are a variety ways to do just that.

For starters, educating yourself about the pharmaceutical industry is an important first step. CNPR’s are educated about various pharmaceutical drugs, regulations, and companies (especially the biggest and most successful ones). It’s also important to keep yourself updated on industry trends.

Justin-Lilly Sales Mgr. in Chicago, Illinois said: I work for Eli Lilly and we recently hired several CNPR Graduates. I know several of them would be willing to sell their used NAPRx Training Manuals. Some are 2007 and others 2008. Email me if you want to purchase any of them at jst_lilly@yahoo.com

There findings conclude that employment opportunities will be best for those with some college education, the appropriate industry knowledge or technical expertise, and the personal traits necessary for successful selling.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics report, “There are many certifications designed to raise standards and develop the skills of sales representatives, wholesale and manufacturing. A few examples are the … the Certified Sales Professional, and the Certified National Pharmaceutical Representative. Certification may involve completion of formal training and passing an examination.”

Yes the company is a big ripoff and they 'claim' to be legit just because they have the course linked to universities. NAPSR just shows the unviersities a bogus certification and a book and the universities basically offer the course as long as people enroll. The certification is as legit as me printing out one for myself. Someone should really look into sueing this company! Because even though $300 isn't all that much to anyone person, ripping off a whole lot of people and getting their money isn't right and they are making big bucks tricking people. The money NAPSR is making is as sinful as selling crack to people.

I have an associates degree and I've applied to several pharm sales rep jobs and they told me I can do entry level but not without the CNPR so I am working on

If you are trying to learn about the Pharm Sales Career, the NAPSRX is ok for that. If you are trying to break into the industry and are taking the course to get a certificate so use to get employment, it is a waste of time and money. They offer the course in colleges because it is an 'educational' course, but as far as it helping you land a job, it won't do that. Most of the 'job opening's they post are phony, they don't even have offices in those areas that they advertise, and they are linked to other sites that may have postings so basically you are paying for nothing! They also have reps that post jobs, and then when you reply, they ask for your CNPR #, those are their company people trying to fool people to think that their certificate is important. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY, IF YOU GET HIRED AT A COMPANY, THEY WILL TEACH YOU EVERYTHING!

Personally, I think the company needs to get sued! I was thinking of doing that, but then didn't have time to go after it. I bet a lot, a lot, a lot of people who waste their money there think of going after them, but then give up because of busy lifestyle, otherwise they would be out of business by now. THEY ARE A BUNCH OF CONARTISTS MAKING MONEY OFF OF PEOPLE WHO WISH TO GET A JOB IN PHARM INDUSTRY AND THEY KNOW THAT EVERYONE WANTS TO GET IN THAT INDUSTRY. SOMEONE NEEDS TO GO AFTER THEM!

Brenda Probert in Denver, Colorado said: I know of many people who got hired with their CNPR. By the way pharmaceutical companies do not have offices for their sales reps. Pharmaceutical sales reps work out of their homes. I guess AFG Girl has no knowledge of the industry and I am sure she is not CNPR Certified because if she did she would know that all pharmaceutical sales reps work out of their homes.

What I have knowledge of is that CNPR will get people nowhere! It is a waste of money and the company should be closed down for advertising false claims and posting fake job posting ads!

Yeah, I bet if a person keeps looking into it, they will see that the company is just a 'rip off' as you stated. They go by NAPRX, NAMSR, CNPR, etc. A lot of people think that just because the course is taught at colleges, it's valid. They are conartists, that's all I have to say.

The NAPSRX is a great organization and the CNPR is a valued pharmaceutical sales training program. I have been a member of the association for years and have done some CME training for this group. Don't let anyone tell you or try to fool you that this program is not valued. I have been a friend of Brian's from the association for quite a while. Give him a call if you need anything. I am glad to put in a good word for the trade association!!! Thanks Brian and keep up the good work.
