PT Accents

The Preferred Trainer (PT) program is at the core of our corporate mission

Our strongest levels of support go to trainers who complete at least one tier of professional continuing education available through LDS & Associates.

Completing Level 1 opens the door to our PT program. This entitle trainers to a 5% discount (often exclusive bundles) on products in our catalog. This 5% is linked to your OnlineStore login.  We update your online store profile to reflect each PT Status update.  However, you can/should also go in and update your account login!

Annual Continuing Education

Calendar year-specific discounts build your profit margin.  PTs save an annual (must be renewed each calendar year) 5% when they attend other training opportunities at LDS such as:

Major Account Holders

We’d like to further increase our Trainers’ competitive edge by extending an additional 10% discount when product purchases for clients hits the $2000.00 mark during a calendar year (re-figured annually). Successful PTs who run 2-3 small/midsize group programs or who see 7+ individuals annually know that’s an easy target to reach!
