Course Correspondence

Once a dealer is enrolled in a Spanco Academy training class, they will receive a second email from the marketing department with details about their class. This email will contain specific information regarding the training schedule, hotel accommodations, directions, times, and other miscellaneous details that pertain to the class. Once new classes are available, seats fill quickly. Each dealer is responsible for their flights to and from the host city but most other costs such as hotel accommodation, meals and certain local transportation are covered by Spanco.
