Really great course!

My dealership paid for this course because they realized the importance of developing existing employee talent (even experienced staff). Sounds silly, and I was not looking forward to taking a course at my age but the parts manager course taught me lots of new things I didn't know before. The course is very detailed, plenty of examples, and useful spreadsheets. I'm glad to be part of a great team.

Learned lots of new tricks

I've been a parts manager for a couple of years and didn't feel like I truly understood everything. So, I'm glad I took this course, it helped fill in the holes because I was unsure of a few things. I learned lots of new tricks and even referred back to lessons when something goes wrong at the store. I would recommend taking this course.

Lots of great tips

I would recommend the parts manager course to anyone. This course was good at showing parts managers many skills you will need to run the parts department efficiently. There were many in-depth examples of pricing strategies, it did a great job explaining inventory levels, and how to work with the service department better.

A great course for General Managers

This course has been extremely helpful in understanding the many layers of the parts department. I'm actually a General Manager and found the parts department intimidating. The parts manager course explained lots and was easy to follow. Now, the parts manager is shocked that I know so much about his department.
