Auction Academy Kicks Off Class

By Staff Writer June 25, 2019

Auction Academy, a continuing education program developed by TPC Management Co. (TPC), launched its sixth class group with training in Nashville May 16-18.

The two-day session was the first in the two-year program for the new class, and included classroom training as well as auction facility tours and meetings with key auction personnel for in-depth discussions about auction operations.

Opening the session was Pierre Pons of TPC and Auction Academy who welcomed the group, and Tony Long, who introduced the International Automotive Remarketers Alliance Certified Automotive Remarketer program. Academy President Penny Wanna, who is herself IARA CAR Certified, administered the first phase of certification for the group and will oversee each student’s progress.

Julie Warpool, senior vice president of auction systems for Auction Edge was on hand to roll out the first of eight training modules which are now included in the Auction Academy course syllabus.  A different aspect of Auction Edge and corresponding training will be included in each session of the academy’s two-year program.
