It is taught twice a quarter in Dayton, OH or Houston, TX.

Here’s what attendees of the class had to say :

“They did a great job of unfolding the system, showing us how each item was important, how it worked, and how I can use it. When we got into that learning environment, they made it really fun. We talked about the real world, and they asked questions to make sure we saw connections.” Jim Taylor, Internet Sales Director, Capital Toyota and Lexus of Chattanooga

“I highly recommend that dealership staff take advantage of these courses. I wish I could keep the instructor on speed dial, she really dove in deep to all aspects of new Contact Management.” Lisa Dodd, Salesperson, Madera Toyota
