6 Reasons Why You Should Invest in Online Training

Dealer XT 09 Feb 2022 5 min read

Every dealership can benefit from online training tools. Here are six reasons why you should consider investing in this type of training for your car dealership. 

1) Comply with State and Federal Regulations, Including the CLRA - In the automotive industry, compliance training is a must. Online compliance training can be tailored to your dealership’s needs, including topics such as state and F&I compliance rules.

2) Prevent False Claims from Customers - Unfortunately, thousands of dealers are currently facing false claims from their customers after the sale. Many times, customers will claim that a dealer staff member made a promise that they didn’t actually make. This is why easy access to online training for your staff is so important. It keeps your staff up to date and you have a record that you provided that training to your employees. 

3) Increase Productivity - When employees have access to quality online training, they are able to learn new skills more quickly and become more productive. Being able to download notes, having easy access to online support, videos that can be replayed, assessments and quizzes that can be taken anytime during the course help dealership staff learn better and faster. 


4) Improve Customer Satisfaction - Online training gives employees the ability to learn new information at their own pace, which leads to a better understanding of your products and services, improving customer satisfaction rates. 

5) Easier Communication Across Locations - If you have several locations, online training will give all your employees the opportunity to learn the same lessons and information.

6) Know what to do if you receive a CLRA demand letter (CA Civ. Code §1750) - Getting a CLRA demand letter from a lawyer in the mail can be very scary. As the laws change, having proper compliance online training on what to do (and not to do) when you receive a CLRA demand letter is critical to your defense and minimizing financial losses.
