The Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) Foundation has scheduled the first five Academies for Lease & Finance Professionals (ALFP) for 2019.
The ALFP is a three-day event designed to fully prepare an individual to sit for the CLFP exam assuming that the candidate has read and studied The Certified Lease & Finance Professionals’ Handbook prior to attending the class.
During the first two days, all of the required sections of the CLFP exam are covered in-depth and on the third day, the exam is offered, but not mandatory.
The schedule for 2019 as of this press release is:
January 3 – 5 in Scottsdale, AZ hosted by Ascentium Capital
February 7 – 9 in Seattle, WA hosted by Financial Pacific Leasing
March 21 – 23 in Albany, MN (internal Academy for Stearns Bank employees)
April 18 – 20 in St. Cloud, MN co-hosted by by Northland Capital and Oakmont Capital
May 9 – 11 in Chicago, IL hosted by ECS Financial
In 2018, the CLFP Foundation partnered with nine different equipment finance companies to host the Academies and over 140 equipment finance professionals attended a class.
The CLFP designation identifies an individual as a knowledgeable professional to employers, clients, customers, and peers in the equipment finance industry. There are currently 619 active CLFPs in the U.S., Canada and Australia.
