Training

All our training programs are instructed by top “retail” experienced professionals.  Rather than mere textbook recital, our training programs relate as well as demonstrate to those in attendance.  The old adage…”You can Talk-the-Talk, but can you Walk-the-Walk?” is important.  All First Innovations’ instructors “walk-the-walk” every month.  When not in the classroom, they are in dealerships providing hands on demonstration and instruction.

Training classes are held in Austin, Texas each month at our high tech corporate training center.  In addition, customized training seminars can be held in the dealership or on a regional basis for out of state dealers.

First Innovations is continuously updating and creating training programs to maintain maximum effectiveness and to meet the needs of our dealer body.  Some of the training programs utilized have been featured at NADA and numerous State Association Conventions, factory sponsored programs and in hundreds of dealerships around the country.
