Education

Dealer education has always been of paramount importance to us. It’s one of the most valuable means of creating a fair and honest marketplace for both dealers and consumers.

UCDA members are kept up-to-date on their rights and responsibilities through meetings, e-bulletins, newsletters, and classes.

We’ve offered an in-class OMVIC’s Certification Course for new registrants since February of 2014. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, all OMVIC Certification Classes are currently held as online webinars for the health of students and instructors. This 1-day course is offered to both new and currently registered dealers and salespeople. You can write the exam online, after which you will receive the results by email.  This course is one of the six steps required for registering with OMVIC as a licensed salesperson. Visit our pages

or call 1-800-268-2598 for more details.

If a dealer requests it, our Director of Member Services will gladly visit local dealerships and spend a couple of hours going through dealership processes with both management and staff. These dealer “audits” are a complimentary member service and have proven invaluable to dealers in terms of adhering to OMVIC’s guidelines, filling out paperwork correctly, and avoiding costly fines. 

Through Wye Management, the UCDA also offers a 1-day Basic Sales Training Course for new sales people. What started as an add-on, extra day to OMVIC course students has grown to include many existing UCDA members and their staff. This sales course is taught in plain language and guides new sales people in how to approach customers, meet their needs and ultimately, close the sale. This class is offered once per month and also sells-out quickly.

Please contact us for availability of these services under COVID-19 regulations.

We understand that dealers and salespeople are busy and facing restrictions due to the COVID-19 virus. We will continue to look for ways to deliver industry education to our members. Watch for future announcements.
