Essentials Courses

Essentials, ASA University's flagship brand, is comprised of separate and distinct courses, each targeting specific areas of a typical wholesale distribution business. By focusing on the ultimate goal of improving profitability, these courses provide the critical message about the value of each member of the wholesale distributor's team.

Most Essentials courses are available online or in book format. The Essentials courses contain self-grading end-of-chapter quizzes, a glossary, and a final exam. In addition, the online versions of the courses contain learning games, engaging activities, and audio narration.
