ORLANDO, Fla. — Automotive Compliance Education (ACE) will offer onsite Product Specialist certification to attendees of the upcoming Industry Summit and P&A Leadership Summit, organizers announced. The co-located events will take place Oct. 8–10, 2018, at the Caribe Royale Orlando in Orlando, Fla.

Dealers, F&I professionals, agents, and other industry members who would like to participate in ACE certification are invited to RSVP by clicking here. The three-hour-plus review and exam will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 9.

Attendees of both events also are welcome at Compliance Summit, a full day of compliance training and education to be held on Monday, Oct. 8. Speakers include ACE’s executive director, Gil Van Over, attorneys James Ganther and Robert Steenbergh, attorney and former Florida dealer regulator Terry O’Loughlin, and Florida Automobile Dealers Association chief Ted Smith, as well as two hard-hitting panel discussions staffed by dealership counsel and personnel.

On Wednesday, Industry Summit offers a full day of advanced F&I training from award-winning and nationally recognized trainers.

“F&I and compliance are inextricably linked, and you will not find a better training event — with more qualified instructors — than you will find at Industry Summit and PALS,” said David Gesualdo, show chair and publisher of F&I and Showroom and Auto Dealer Today. “Every dealership needs a compliance strategy, just as every dealership needs an efficient and productive F&I department. Our event is a means to both ends.”

Registration for Industry Summit 2018 is open at the event’s website. To discuss sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, contact David Gesualdo at (727) 947-4027 or via email.
