I'm really surprised considering your apparent lack of background in this particular arena that you are being offered a sales job. It makes me wonder why, and I can only imagine a handful of answers:1) They have a really OUTSTANDING method of training, and they train you for a very long time before sending you into the field. Pro/E is not known to be especially easy to learn, although with the advent of Wildfire they supposedly have made things a bit simpler. 2) They're having a terrible time finding anyone in your area who is even interested in the job. 3) The reseller top brass are all pointy-haired managers who have no idea what they're doing.
I think you're right to be wary. You really DO need to know how to use the software quite well to be able to handle questions in sales demos and not look like a complete fool. Also without intimate knowledge of the concerns that engineers and designers face on a daily basis you'd be terribly handicapped. Sounds like you could get yourself into a situation between a rock and a hard place. Time to ask some very pointed questions.
