TAMPA, Fla. — Organizers of Compliance Summit have announced that attendees will have the opportunity to earn Certified Automotive Compliance Specialist status at the Las Vegas event, which will be held Aug. 29–30, 2016, at Paris Las Vegas, as part of the annual Industry Summit.

David Gesualdo, who serves as show chair and as publisher of Auto Dealer Today and F&I and Showroom, said the addition of a certification component was in response to demand from past attendees.

“I can’t tell you how many times we have heard, ‘I need something I can take back to the dealership,’” Gesualdo said. “That is a perfectly reasonable request and, with the help of our speakers, we are going to make it happen.”

Certification will require participation in a comprehensive, four-hour review session on Tuesday morning and successful completion of a written exam. The review will be given by Compliance Summit speakers and focus on the following topics:

  • Ethics
  • Reg Z
  • Reg M
  • Risk-Based Pricing Rule
  • Adverse Actions
  • ECOA
  • FCRA
  • Credit Applications
  • Signature Issues
  • Conditional Delivery
  • Monroney Labels
  • Addendum Stickers
  • Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act
  • Used Car Rule
  • Red Flags Rule
  • Safeguards Rule
  • FACT Act
  • Cash Reporting
  • OFAC
  • Discrimination
  • Fair Credit Policies
  • UDAP
  • EH&S Basics
