Team One Makes the “F&I Masters” Training Program Available Online

February 13, 2009

Chandler, Ariz. -- In response to dealer requests for more accessible and less expensive F&I training, Team One Research and Training has made access to their "F&I Masters" training program available online.

For the last 10 years, the "F&I Masters" program has been conducted by invitation to a select few dealership personnel at Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz. The three-day advanced program graduated several hundred managers and produced a large number of the top F&I performers in the United States and Canada. Many of the graduates of this program have gone on to become F&I directors, general sales managers, general managers, and even dealer principals.

The new online program will provide a wide range of F&I training but will also include weekly Webinars, referred to as "National F&I Meetings," Certification as a "F&I Master," F&I tips, techniques and advise, ongoing F&I training and online events, F&I menu and software reviews, dealership compliance solutions, and F&I product reviews and information.

The cost for the entire program is $49 per month, with no contractual obligation. In order to offer the low price the dealers and managers requested, Team One has broken from their 17-year prohibition on product advertising or endorsement for this program and website.

"In order to meet the requests from the dealer base to make this advanced service available at a cost they can handle in the current economic situation, we will offer advertising and product endorsements to selected F&I product and service suppliers who want to support the dealers in this tough time," said Team One spokesman George Angus.
"This might be a good opportunity for dealership decision makers to get the latest product information without the hard sell."
