MAR 27, 2023 - 7:28 am
The Certified Lease & Finance Professional Foundation completed the second printing of the ninth edition of The Certified Lease & Finance Professionals’ Handbook, which is now available for purchase. This printing includes two significant changes; first, the Foundation consulted with Ivory Consulting, the makers of SuperTRUMP lease and loan modeling and pricing software to revamp the pricing chapter. Second, an index for easy reference access to all of the handbook’s content was developed.
“We are honored to have had the opportunity to update the pricing chapter in the latest printing of the Certified Lease & Finance Professionals’ Handbook,” Martin Klotzman, CLFP, senior manager, marketing and product management of Ivory Consulting, said. “The CLFP is an invaluable credential for anyone beginning a career in the equipment leasing and finance industry, and I have benefited significantly from the credibility the CLFP credential provides. The knowledge and skills gained from becoming certified and then maintaining the CLFP are essential for success in our industry, and Ivory Consulting is proud to contribute to the ongoing development and growth of the CLFP Foundation.”
“The Foundation updates the Body of Knowledge annually, and if there are changes, we update the Handbook, Academy for Lease & Finance Professionals content, and the exam,” Reid Raykovich, CLFP, CEO of the CLFP Foundation, said. “Our industry is ever evolving, and it is our desire to ensure that we remain current. We are also working hard to create a consistent nomenclature across the industry and providing the highest quality information; therefore, it made sense to partner with Ivory.”
The CLFP designation is the only certification for the commercial equipment finance industry. Currently, there are Certified Lease & Finance professionals and associates located throughout the world, including the United States and Puerto Rico, Canada, India, Africa and Australia.
