Dealership University, a developer of interactive training and marketing solutions for the powersports industry, today announced the introduction of its new Dealership Compliance class entitled ‘Privacy Acts and Red Flags.’ This 1-week, instructor-led online training class is designed to educate powersports dealers and their staff on the new Federal Trade Commission (FTC) requirements for dealership compliance as they pertain to the Privacy, Safeguards and Red Flags Rules.
The online Privacy Acts and Red Flags class, conducted by Dealership University’s lead instructors, offers dealers an in-depth overview of the new federal requirements, discusses dealership roles and responsibilities as part of the FTC guidelines and provides dealers with a systematic way to train their team and have proof of ‘Good Faith’ should an unexpected FTC audit occur. In addition to the online material, dealers will receive a “Done for You” Identity Theft and Red Flags Program template, a Safeguards and Compliance written program template and eight more “Done for You” tools to make dealership implementation thorough and easy. Dealership University instructors are also available online or by phone to discuss questions or provide additional information about a topic covered in the material.
“Until recently, many dealerships were unaware they were affected by these new federal requirements,” said Rod Stuckey, president of Dealership University . “We have designed our Privacy Acts and Red Flags class to help dealers understand the rules and assist them with establishing and implementing reasonable policies and procedures to ensure their timely compliance without all of the hassles of creating the program from scratch. Best of all, since this is an online class, dealers can complete it without expensive travel or valuable time out of the dealership.”
Dealership University is currently taking enrollment for its Privacy Acts and Red Flags online classes in December and January. Tuition is free for Dealership University members and $379 for non-members. To allow for proper interaction between the instructor and class participants, each class is limited to 25 students.
