To maintain the caliber of this pool, the GVC BMW CCA …

- Offers continuing education in the form of Instructor Seminars to keep its current instructors up-to-date in areas that affect their on-track instruction
- Offers a rigorous Instructor Training School (ITS) for advanced drivers to learn and practice the skills required to be an Instructor
GVC Instructor Review Process - for instructors from other chapters / organizations
