absolutely essential to keep a dealership's staff well-informed about
the laws and regulations governing the auto industry. Ongoing training
is necessary to help maintain compliance with stringent federal and
requirements. New laws are enacted continually that affect the way a
must run its business. Not only are dealerships required to abide by
regulations, but they must keep their personnel well-informed on their
responsibilities. As an example, rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court
that if an employer exercises reasonable care in order to prevent
harassment and discrimination, it may be able to avoid liability for

they do not understand the laws. One of the best ways to protect your dealership is to
implement and document a comprehensive training program for all managers and employees.

needs to be more than a one-time event due to staff turnover, new laws and
constantly changing F&I products. Just
having a manager take “the new guy”
under his wing to “show him the ropes” or requiring that the the
new-hire read lengthy, boring training manuals simply doesn’t cut it in
fast-paced and litigious world. Let's face it - this type of training kills productivity. How many hours do you or your personnel spend training new
employees? Don't you think your is time better spent elsewhere? There must be a more efficient way!
seminars are probably not the answer either. They tend to be difficult for both personnel and management. On-site or off-site seminars are generally very expensive, inconvenient and can't provide both complete penetration and
repetition. Often, when the program is over and the slides
are put away, the audience goes home with their notes and a few
memories, but very little retention. Additionally, seminars often cannot offer full protection from
legal liability - that is, the ability to provide proof that training
was completed, and accurate data on how well the material was understood. In order to adequately protect themselves, dealers must be able to document not only completed
employee training but also successful testing.

Proof of completion and
certification, essential elements of training initiatives, are automated and permanently stored in the Learning Management System. Administrators have access to multiple training reports.
After completing the training course and passing the tests, employees will download and sign a Dealership Compliance Policy/Code of Ethics
which may constitute your dealership's own compliance policy and make
the employee personally accountable for his or her actions.
Availability of these records adds significant credibility to the
dealership's assertion of reasonable care as an affirmative defense.
