Staples recently confirmed that it will begin selling Apple products and, to prepare its employees, it recently ramped up its training efforts. MacRumors said it learned of the training and that Apple will sell Mac computers, iPhones and iPads later this month.

Employees are being trained to speak about the features of all of Apple's products. In one snapshot of the iPhone 5 training documents, we see that the associates will be trained on being able to "describe key features of the iPhone 5" and to "suggest attachments that compliment the iPhone 5." We assume "attachments" means accessories, especially since Staples is already selling Apple accessories.

Training is supposed to wrap up on March 26 or March 27, MacRumors said.
