Building a better equipment finance industry one individual at a time.

The Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) designation is the preeminent credential for equipment leasing and financing professionals throughout the world who have demonstrated competency through testing of knowledge, continuing education and a commitment to their business practices and dedication to the industry. This designation was previously known as the Certified Lease Professional (CLP) designation.

The Certified Lease & Finance Professionals’ Handbook

The CLFP Handbook follows the Body of Knowledge footprint and has again called on contributors who are experts within their sectors of the industry that worked with one author in order to provide a consistent voice throughout the book. The result is a handbook that is short on theory and long on the practical aspects of participating in the commercial equipment leasing and finance industry. Although the book is comprehensive, its style is to provide information in a reader-friendly manner. Whether you’re a college student, entry-level leasing associate or a seasoned veteran within the industry, this book is an invaluable resource. The handbook may also be utilized as the cornerstone of a candidate’s study path toward achieving CLFP designation.
