The Certified Lease & Finance Professional (CLFP) Foundation has completed the second printing of the ninth edition of The Certified Lease & Finance Professionals’ Handbook which is now available for purchase via the Foundation’s website:

This printing includes two significant changes; first, the Foundation consulted with Ivory Consulting Corporation, the makers of SuperTRUMPTM 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,” remarked Martin Klotzman, CLFP, Senior Manager, Marketing and Product Management, Ivory Consulting Corporation. “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.”

Reid Raykovich, CLFP, CEO of the CLFP Foundation stated, “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. 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.
