Academy Plus



Now accepting applications for NADA Academy's newest program, Academy Plus.

Academy Plus educates and prepares six dealership leaders from a single dealership to maximize performance and accelerate results. 

  • What’s different?  The emerging dealership leader – plus up to five department managers from a single dealership – can attend individual class weeks covering financial management, parts, service, pre-owned vehicles, new vehicles and business leadership.
  • NADA 20 Group Financial Composite. To make real-time strategy adjustments, the NADA 20 Group’s Financial Composite with enhanced internet metrics provides participating dealerships with valuable analytical insight to compare performance, track trends and discover best practices. Plus, a NADA 20 Group consultant will review the dealership’s composite between class weeks.
  • NADA 20 Group In-Dealership Consulting.  After completing the program, a NADA 20 Group consultant will visit the dealership to ensure its goals and objectives are being met. 
  • NADA University Online Premium Subscription.  Participating dealership locations will receive 24/7 access for all employees to hundreds of online courses, workshops and webinars for the duration of the program.

The program includes six intensive week-long classroom sessions at NADA Headquarters in Tysons, VA. One full-time student attends all six classroom sessions. Up to five different managers/directors (one manager/director each week) attend classroom sessions as a certificate participant with full-time student. Example: CFO attends Financial Management; Parts Manager attends Fixed Operations 1; Service Director attends Fixed Operations 2; Sales Director attends Variable Operations 1 and 2. All certificate program participants are invited to attend the final week, which includes Business Leadership, 20 Group meeting and graduation.

Applications are being accepted now and the first class will begin in October 2016.
