In May of 2015, Dennis completed training at the Professional Ringmen’s Institute in Branson, MO.  The institute is the only one in the U.S. and their objective is clear…. “Teaching Skills to Make Every Auction a Better One.”  The institute trains those individuals wishing to serve as Professional Ringmen while assisting bidders and Auctioneers at live auctions.  With three days of intensive training, students receive hands on training for serving as a Professional Ringman at Real Estate Auctions, Personal Property, Auto Auctions, Purebred Livestock and Benefit Auctions.  Students learn what’s  required to serve as an effective Professional and PRI founder Brian Rigby states that “many Professional Ringmen, also referred to as bid assistants, are making a very good living serving as a Professional Ringman.”  Rigby also says that there is a considerable difference between a Professional Ringman and a ‘bidspotter’ and at the Professional Ringmen’s Institute, students become aware of the difference very quickly.  At PRI, students learn from World Champion Ringmen and Auctioneers with combined experience in the auction industry of over 100 years.  Upon graduation, students are prepared to professionally assist auctioneers with any kind of auction and they will be a tremendous asset to any auction team.  Rigby states that “a good Ringman will always make a better Auctioneer” and several PRI graduates have made that transition very successfully.
