Starting in early 2019, all licensed salespeople employed by independent auto dealers will be required to complete an education program every three years.  Dealers will be responsible to maintain current certificates on file so that their sales staff may perform duties.  IADAC has a premier video based program with actual sales training available for sales staff.  Your sales staff can create huge problems as a result of their lack of knowledge of laws pertaining to auto sales transactions.  Reduce your liability by training your sales staff through IADAC.  Sign up HERE to be advised when this program becomes operative.
