The University of North Florida’s Division of Continuing Education has partnered with Sandler Training® to offer sales training solutions to businesses and individuals in Northeast Florida.


“UNF is very cautious about who we choose to partner with. They must be considered a leader in their field, considered by their customers to be providing the very best training available, and they must be of stellar character,” said Robert Wood, dean of the Division of Continuing Education at UNF. “It’s for these reasons that we have chosen to partner with Sandler Training® to be our vendor of choice and our partner in offering sales training to the Jacksonville community and the state.”


Sandler Training® is a sales and sales management development firm helping corporations, entrepreneurs and professionals develop strategies to reach the level of sales performance and leadership they desire as well as develop skills in sales and management mastery through ongoing reinforcement.

“We are excited about our partnership with UNF, as their reputation in the Jacksonville business community has grown to be the go-to resource for businesses looking to develop their people in many different disciplines,” said Michele McManamon, vice president of Sandler Training®.


Courses will be held every Monday, starting October 12. For more information or to register, contact Michele McManamon at (904) 646-1900 or by email at
