MICD Unveils Guide to MDCE

Navigate your way through the diverse educational offerings on tap at this year’s Marine Dealer Conference & Expo with "The MICD Guide to MDCE 2014,” a special e-booklet available exclusively for Certified Dealers that’s designed to take the guesswork out of fulfilling your MICD continuing education requirements.

As you know, Certified Dealerships are required to complete a certain number of hours of ongoing education credits that escalate for each step of the MICD Program: Step 1 requires 10 hours of leadership and management training; Step 2 requires an additional 10 hours of sales and marketing courses; and Five Star MICD requires yet another 10 hours of HR and succession planning.

If that sounds like an overwhelming amount of work, don’t fret. The good news is that you can meet nearly ALL those required hours at MDCE 2014, and the "MICD Guide to MDCE” will show you how.

The guide, which is available to all levels of Certified Dealers in the MICD Portal under the header "Continuing Education," breaks down each of the more than 30 MDCE Pre-Conference Workshops and educational track sessions and lays out how every individual workshop or session meets one of the three categories of educational requirements: Leadership and management, sales and marketing, and HR and succession planning.

Since workshops and sessions range from one to three hours long, attending MDCE and planning your schedule specifically with meeting education requirements in mind means you and your team can knock out your mandated 10 to 30 hours in one place over the course of just a few days (Nov. 16-19); not weeks, months or even over an entire year.

It’s the simplest, most cost-effective means of getting the credits you need to stay Certified and keep your dealership personnel on the cutting-edge of what’s happening in the marine retail field.
