Third, our instructors are world class and don't believe in just recycling content that's grown tired over the past several decades. They are engaged, even with online courses, and often form long lasting relationships with SmartDealerUniversity alumni.

How long does is take to complete each course?

It all depends on the course itself, and the pace with which you take the course. Some courses are very short, taking fifteen to thirty minutes, while others are intended to be taken over many days. In the course catalog, the estimated length of each course is listed. And unlike a classroom environment, courses taken online are completed at the leisure and pace of the student.

Can courses be viewed on phones and tablets?
