ASA is pleased to announce an educational partnership with The Commonwealth Group (TCG) buying group to provide access to ASA University training at a special price for all TCG distributor members. 

ASA University’s comprehensive library of peer-reviewed, industry-developed online courses will be available for purchase via ASA University’s online store, and able to be accessed directly from The Commonwealth Group’s website. 

In addition, members of The Commonwealth Group will have access to ASA University’s prepackaged, off-the-shelf training tracks. Each of these unique educational pathways targets a job role in the wholesale-distribution industry and provides a solid foundational basis for the jumping-off point of any career in the industry. 

“The alliance between The Commonwealth Group and ASA is very powerful,” The Commonwealth Group President Mike Lepley said. “ASA University is another example of the phenomenal value ASA provides our industry. These cost-effective training courses provide the good, old-fashioned ‘blocking and tackling’ techniques that are crucial for new employees entering the wholesale industry. This content ASA has developed goes beyond the features and benefits of product, thus we are confident these new training modules will be extremely valuable to our members.” 

The Commonwealth Group members can access this special pricing by visiting The Commonwealth Group website at and clicking on the ASA University logo at the top of the TCG website to gain access to ASA University’s storefront of online offerings. 

“This educational partnership helps fulfill the critical need to create training pathways to grow the best trained, most professional employees in the industry,” said Taylor Kenney, vice-president of education for the ASA Education Foundation. “By partnering with The Commonwealth Group, we have the ability to educate a new cross-section of industry professionals, which will enhance the profitability and longevity for all.”

This direct, discounted access to learning content will serve to seamlessly enhance the reach of training within the PHCP wholesale-distribution industry.
