NADA-ATD Academy       American Truck Dealers

NADA-TV: New graduates of the NADA/ATD Dealer Academy brought home profit-generating ideas and best practices throughout the course of the intense curriculum.

The ATD Truck Dealer Academy is a one-of-a-kind program designed exclusively for operators and/or successor candidates at medium- and heavy-duty truck dealerships.

The ATD Academy customizes the concepts and principals of the traditional Academy program to fit the needs and operations of truck dealers and the overall truck industry.

The program consists of six one-week classroom sessions at NADA offices in McLean, VA, each separated by eight weeks of in-dealership program assignments. Dealership operations are taught using these specialty areas:

• Financial Management
• Fixed Operations I – Parts
• Fixed Operations II – Service
• Variable Operations I – Used Trucks
• Variable Operations II – New Trucks
• Business Leadership

ATD Special Ops Certificate Programs
The ATD Special Ops Program allows department managers (e.g., Controller, Parts Manager, Service Manager, New and Used Sales Manager) to attend an individual week of the ATD Academy program and hone skills specific to their needs. 

In-dealership Training
This option brings all the advantages of the Specialist Certificates directly to the in-dealership environment, with the unique advantages of on-site resources and focus. Contact us at (800) 557-6232 to learn more about In-dealership Training options.
