NAMSR designation as the accreditor for the RMSR Certification program is stated in revisions to a manual issued recently. The manual provides guidance and procedures for the medical sales training, certification, and management of the Medical Device & Equipment sales workforce conducting sales functions in assigned territories and medical sales positions. “The NAMSR is recognized for its long and successful track record for successfully running the RMSR Certification program for a wide variety of medical device companies, personnel, and students,” said Lisa Hannenberg, vice president of accreditation services. “The NAMSR is pleased to serve as the approved accreditation body recognized by the industry and its Information Assurance Workforce Improvement Program, and we look forward to continuing and deepening our involvement in this initiative.”
RMSR Certification & Accreditation offered by the NAMSR enhances the credibility and qualifications for medical device sales applicants. When medical sales applicants are RMSR Certified they meet job requirements for medical sales positions open with medical device & equipment companies. An impartial assessor evaluates the certification process, determining if the examination is evaluating the identified competencies and enhancing manufacture, consumer and public confidence in a certification program and the person who holds the certification.
Since the inception of the NAMSR RMSR Certification in 2002, the association has accredited certification bodies that represent more than 1200 medical device companies. In total, thousands of professionals currently hold the RMSR Certification from the National Association of Medical Sales Representatives.

So, one of the key distinctions is that in certification, you may verify education/training received (as a job requirement)
The RMSR® Certificaton is becoming more important to applicants as medical companies look to hire new reps with some medical industry education and training. The industry has seen a huge increase of requests to interview certified and trained RMSR® Certified reps. Medical device and equipment companies will always look at candidates and interview applicants who already possess medical device industry training and certification.
