Automotive Career Training (ACT) - The Ultimate College of Automotive Management Experience
How can you get every customer to agree they want the benefits of every F&I product you recommend, before you start your F&I product presentation?
What strategy can you use to be the highest profit producer in the F&I department and successfully achieve 50% or higher penetration on your F&I products with Cash, Lease and Internet customers?
How do you get lenders to buy marginal deals so you can help increase car sales for the dealership?
How do you ensure lenders buy more deals "as is" to increase your dealer's cash flow and reduce contracts in transit and rewrites?
How do you motivate senior management in your dealership to "want" to promote you into F&I full time?
The College has been providing the answers to these questions for years while graduates of the College have become top producers in F&I, Special Finance, and Sales Management positions throughout the United States.
Automotive Career Training (ACT) is taught 100% online and includes our tried and proven 200 hour classroom F&I training curriculum plus 50% more curriculum focusing on advanced relationship selling and management techniques. Online F&I Training provided by the College begins by providing salespeople the skills they need to increase their income while still selling cars during the F&I training process. Most salespeople can complete the online F&I training program (which also includes; special finance training, loan underwriter training, F&I Director Training, Desk Training, Lease Management Training, and more...) in 10-20 weeks by attending part time, depending upon their schedules. Training is self paced and students can access the program 24/7 from anywhere they have internet connection without missing any work or income.
Graduates of the ACT program are awarded 5 different certifications once testing confirms 100% understanding of the curriculum. A sample diploma with all 5 certifications is featured below for reference. We have been able to reduce the tuition from $14,000+ when taught in one of our classrooms to only $2,495.00.

A few examples of Automotive Salespeople who increased their sales and income after attending Career Training provided by the College of Automotive Management.
"I had sold cars for 3-4 years making between $3 - 5K per month before coming to The College of Automotive Management. I heard about The College of Automotive Management through a friend and also did my research over the internet. I completed the program and it gave me a much better foundation than my previous experience. After I graduated, I continued to work at my local dealership, improved my sales and gross profits per sale, and made it known I had the goal of being promoted to Finance. After a year of continued hard work and consistent effort, I was promoted to Finance. I would recommend The College of Automotive Management. It provides a great foundation to be successful in the automotive industry."
"I had worked briefly as an automotive salesperson for about 2 months, but did very poorly because I didn't speak or understand English very well and I had no training or skills. So I quit the industry. 3 years later, I found out about the College of Automotive Management and knew this was the answer. When I graduated, I felt very confident with my skills. I even felt confident enough to interview at luxury stores which is where I wanted to work but didn't feel I would qualify before I went to The College of Automotive Management. I was hired at South Bay Mercedes as a Salesperson. I became top salesperson my second month! I thought I wanted to eventually be a finance manager, but after doing finance for a few months I realize that I can make more selling cars than our finance managers do and love developing my own business and making new friends. I cannot believe how much my income and my life have changed. Thank you College of Automotive Management!
“After I graduated from the College my dealership told me that they would consider me for a finance position. After only three more months of success working in the Sales Department and increasing my sales production the General Manager, who was also a College of Automotive Management graduate, promoted me to Finance Manager. I am now a full time Finance Manager for one of the biggest Auto Groups in the Inland Empire.”
“I was working in the sales department for a Nissan dealership in Pennsylvania when I came upon The College of Automotive Management’s website. I have a Master’s Degree and I am sorry to say that it doesn’t even compare to what I received from The College of Automotive Management in regard to helping me earn and increase my income. I continued to increase my sales after graduating from the College and a little after three months I was promoted to GSM! I even set up our dealership’s Special Finance Department! My income quadrupled overnight! ”
"I was an Internet Sales Person/Manager at a used car dealership earning about $6,000 per month. I wanted to attend a comprehensive automotive sales and management training program to enhance my skills and performance in my position and have better opportunity for advancement. I was familiar with The College of Automotive Management from other employees at our dealership. The program was extremely informative and to the point. They taught specifically what is needed in the roles of sales, internet and finance. I would recommend The College of Automotive Management to get the foundations for what you need to be successful and also get the hands on experience you need as well. With this training, you can be at the same level or higher as other people with years and years of experience in the dealership. My income rose from $6,000 per month to $17,000 per month, and I was subsequently promoted to Finance Director. Now, when I need help training my top quality candidates for my dealership, I call The College of Automotive Management."

“I was left in charge last night from 5pm till close with 4 salesmen and a deal came in, so I got my first opportunity to desk my first deal! I appraised the trade, penciled the deal, re-penciled the deal, closed the deal for the salesman, contracted the customer and made $4,045 gross payable. While signing the doc's, the customer asked me, "So how long have you worked here?" I replied " Ten days now". He said "No really, how long have you really been here?" I explained how I had gone through this wonderful F&I course in California as I proudly pointed to my diploma up on the wall."

When I was told about The College of Automotive Management, I couldn’t imagine what a school could teach me especially after 13 years of automotive experience. Within 2 days of class, I found that I didn’t know what I thought I knew. The school changed my life.”
Sharon Van Brunt – Special Finance Director
"I was working as an automotive salesperson for about 3 years and was making an 'average' income of about $4,000 per month. I wanted more income and better opportunity and I learned about The College of Automotive Management from a friend I knew in the industry. I have made $12,000 - $15,000 as a Finance Manager, and have since been promoted to Finance Director. The College opened many doors for me and gave me the skills to succeed. Thank You College of Automotive Management!"
