  • Call Center Inbound Sales Skills: A candidate who successfully completes this test will have demonstrated a well-versed knowledge of call center sales, service, operations, and procedures. Questions are based on situations and issues often encountered in call center environments. The test contains questions that range from basic to advanced.
