Dianna Lifford

He had heard great reviews and knew of many successful Business Managers that had started with this course. Needless to say I took the course. Almost a year ago, I started an exhilarating new career path as a Business Manager thanks to Arlie and the Automotive Training Centre.

The interactive course provided me with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to begin this new career and to be productive within weeks of starting. Our class instructor was able to provide us with hands on knowledge from years of experience in the industry, as well as from different dealership roles, which was extremely helpful. Not only that, but the industry representatives, who attended the course, allowed me to begin a network for job searching. Within one week of completing the course I began my first day at Dennison Chevrolet.

Both my Business Manager partner and I are graduates of the Automotive Training Centre. We are both thrilled with the opportunities this career has provided so far and we look forward to a rewarding future.
Thanks ATC!!!

Sincerely,

Dianna Lifford
