Specialized Solutions Courses

While sales and service training play an important role in a dealership's success, there is another area that has become of particular importance — training to assist sales reps and service technicians to prepare for the industry's various IT certification examinations. Such certifications as CompTIA's CDIA+ and Microsoft's MCSE have become commonplace in today's office technology industry. Oftentimes, having personnel with these and other important credentials can be the determining factor as the dealership strives to advance in today's connected workplace. They can help dealers distinguish themselves from the competition and provide easier access to IT decision makers.

BTA is now providing its member dealers with a means for their employees to more affordably pursue these certifications. Specifically, BTA has established a relationship with Clearwater, Fla.-based Specialized Solutions Inc. (, a provider of multi-media interactive, self-paced training programs. The company is a Microsoft Certified Partner, a cornerstone on several CompTIA advisory committees and one of only two approved online training providers listed as an EC-Council Authorized Training Center. Now, a number of Specialized Solutions' study programs, each designed to help students prepare for certification examinations, are available at a discount to BTA members.

The online course offerings include five study programs designed to help individuals prepare for CompTIA certification examinations — A+, Network+, CDIA+, Security+ and Project+. There are also four study programs for Microsoft certification examinations — Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician (MCDST), Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA), MCSA with A+ and Network+, and Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE). And finally, there is a study program for the EC-Council's Security5 certification exams and the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium's Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) exam. Again, all of these online study programs are offered at a significant discount to BTA members, as can be seen below.

In addition, Specialized Solutions offers the option of six-month, one-year or two-year subscriptions. These allow users to access all course offerings for the defined period of time. They, too, are offered at a discount to BTA members.
