Learn More about Sector Partnerships


The strength of the sector partnership is its unique ability to foster collaboration. Successful earn-and-learn stategies are born from collaboration among partners - businesses, workforce intermediaries, educational institutions, the public workforce system, and other key community organizations. Every partner has a critical role to play: Manufacturers: - Identify the skills and knowledge that apprentices need to learn - Provide industry and/or workforce specific expertise (e.g. curriculum development) - Hire new workers, or select current employees, to be apprentices - Provide on-the-job training - Identify and engage experienced mentors to work with apprentices Educational Institutions: - Develop curriculum for related instruction and deliver to apprentices - Aggregate demand for apprentices - Offer access to financial resources, outreach Public Workforce Systems - Develop sector and career pathway strategies utilizing apprenticeships - Recruit and screen candidates to be apprentices - Provide support services - Contribute funding for OJT training or related instruction

Sales Training Program

DRMA members receive a 60% discount on The Priority Sale, a sales training program offered by the Revenue Path Group.  The Priority Sale is a methodology that will help you find more and better opportunities and turn them into customers. This eLearning platform is for anyone who has lost a deal that should not have been lost or has seen some of the symptoms of the big shift in the way prospects buy today.

Learn More


In the past few years there has been a massive shift in how prospects are buying. Their playbook today is to keep you out of the sale until the very end, then bring in bigger committees to make the final call. This results in a race to the bottom where you and your competition are made to look the same, so you have to compete on price alone.

It’s time for a new playbook of your own, one that fights what Revenue Path Group (RPG) calls the Three Daily C’s: commoditization, compressed selling time and consensus decision-making. Without better, modern strategies, selling teams are unprepared and ill-equipped to sell the way today’s prospects want to buy.

The Priority Sale is a methodology that will help you find more, better opportunities and turn them into customers. Here’s what DRMA members get:

  • Users have access to a structured learning path tailored to today's selling environment and challenges

  • Users have access to 2 eLearning courses/trainings a month, plus additional supportive/supplemental material (worksheets, quick reference guides, video content, etc.)

  • New content will be released on a weekly basis to ensure retention

  • Schedule:

    • Week 1: eLearning course and supplemental materials

    • Week 2: Review

    • Week 3: eLearning course and supplemental materials

    • Week 4: Review

  • Users will be given knowledge checks following each eLearning module for practice and retention

  • Users have access to 1 virtual learning session/month that will take place in the custom learning environment

  • Managers will have access to all above items as well as additional coaching guides, designed to be used with the manager’s sales team to ensure they are interacting with and retaining the teachings appropriately

DRMA members will receive exclusive pricing for seats on The Priority Sale eLearning Platform at only $48 per seat per month.
