CLFP Announces Five Academies in 2019

November 07, 2018, 07:10 AM

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:

  • Jan. 3 - 5 in Scottsdale, AZ, hosted by Ascentium Capital
  • Feb. 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 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 United States, Canada and Australia.

For more information, call Executive Director Reid Raykovich, CLFP at (206) 535-6281 or visit To register for an Academy, visit here. Registration to each event is limited.
