Alternative courses on the same subject: Martec’s Introduction to Store Operations presents a high level overview of all store operations activities across all retail segments except hospitality. It is suited to induction training for those new to retailing and companies that sell goods and services to retailers. NRF’s Operations class, which is also part of the NRF Retail Management Suite, reviews store operations and is more geared to the department store and non-food retail segments than the Martec offering. Martec’s Store Operations class is a full review of everything that Store Operations needs to do or is responsible for. It is more suited to those who aspire to be store managers or have roles at headquarters and who need much more detailed content. Class length is roughly 10 hours verses 1 to 2 hours for the Martec Introduction class above.
