Auction Academy will open formal registration for Class Group 8 at the Conference of Automotive Remarketing, to be held March 28-30 in Las Vegas.
This class will start its eight-session program in August 2023 in Nashville, Tennessee, following with its second quarterly meeting in November in Phoenix at NRC/Used Car Week.
“We are already adding students to the roster and expect to fill our 8th Class Group quickly,” said Penny Wanna, President of Auction Academy, in a news release. “Positive reviews by previous graduates and the companies they work for have generated great interest and excitement for the upcoming Class Group.”
Auction Academy Class Group 8 will meet in-person quarterly to pursue the academy’s in-depth curriculum, alternating with virtual classroom training on a variety of industry topics. Auction Academy was developed by TPC Management Company after many industry leaders saw the need for formal training of the rising generation of auction industry leaders. The academy structures its two-year training and development like an Executive MBA program. With faculty drawn from expert practitioners around the country, Auction Academy designs its course of study to enhance essential skill sets, promote best practices, and yield better auction performance. The curriculum includes site visits, field trips and work with industry experts in all areas of auction operations. Students see an improved career ROI with the extra credentials.
“To date Auction Academy has graduated 138 students from the two-year program, and with additions to our curriculum, 100% have received certifications for IARA CAR, IARA ACT, NAAA Safety and NAAA Data Security through our instruction and proctoring,” Wanna said. “We are extremely grateful to our sponsors along with auctions and related companies across the country who have opened their doors to host class sessions. Their influence on the curriculum strengthens the industry, and we welcome the support of other companies that wish to participate with us.”
