About RISE Up Training

The NRF Foundation's RISE Up training and credentials will prepare you with the skills you need to launch your career in retail, an industry that is looking for more workers to meet increased consumer demand.

The introductory Retail Industry Fundamentals gives your students an overview of multiple career options within the retail industry and direct access to retailers once they earn the certificate. 

Customer Service & Sales credential solidifies your learners’ grasp of excellent customer service and prepares them to shine in the workplace. 

The Business of Retail: Operations & Profit credential helps learners understand the positive impact that retail has on the global economy and prepares them to run a retail business.

All courses can be completed on a computer or tablet. No special software is required – you only need a web browser.
