The Car Buying Institute (CBI), was started by a car salesman that wanted to empower people by teaching them about the complexities of the car buying process. Having been taken advantage of on his first car purchase, he found it unbearable, as a car salesman, to witness droves of people ignorant of the basics of the car buying process. CBI is located in Atlanta, GA and facilitates the training of people to become masters of the car buying process through online courses, virtual training (webinars), seminars and one-on-one tutoring.
