MT. ARLINGTON, NJ - The International Automotive Remarketers Alliance (IARA) announced that Don Roccia, remarketing manager for Credit Acceptance Corp., is the 29th remarketing professional to earn the IARA Certifed Automotive Remarketer (CAR) designation. 

The mission of CAR is to enhance and promote the profession of Vehicle Remarketing by providing the premier credential in the industry. Curriculum includes 20 courses in five units:

1. Remarketing Channels
2. Pre-sale Activities
3. Actual Sale Activities
4. Post-sale Activities
5. Legal, Ethics and Terminology

Candidates must have a minimum of three consecutive years experience in the vehicle remarketing segment or support of that segment prior to taking a test. A test may be given only for courses where the student has enrolled and paid the appropriate fee. Testing may be requested at remote locations such as local community colleges where a test monitor can be utilized. Please contact the Executive Director, Matt Marks, if you wish to arrange for remote site testing. Testing will be given at all annual National Remarketing Conferences. Candidates have three years to complete testing for all 20 courses from the time that the candidate enrolls in the first course. The IARA Certification Board will evaluate candidate applications and determine eligibility. Applications are available online. CAR designations will be awarded during a formal ceremony at the IARA Summer Roundtable event. Certification will be renewed based upon completion of a 50 question exam taken between six months prior or six months after the Certification anniversary date.
