AFIP’s multi-tiered certification ladder offers financial services professionals and managers a distinct career path. Certified F&I Professionals must recertify every other year at increasingly difficult levels to maintain their certification and individual membership in AFIP. This continuing training requirement keeps AFIP-certified professionals up-to-date on new and revised laws.
AFIP’s primary dealership compliance training venue – the time-effective, multimedia AFIP Regulation Education Platform – supports all learning styles. Additional resources include the hard copy CARLAW® F&I Legal Desk Book and live study sessions and reviews conducted via conference call. AFIP also hosts two-day certification boot camps around the country to facilitate the certification process.
Candidates must score 80% or higher on the proctored final examination to earn AFIP certification. All candidates must signify that they will comply with the AFIP Code of Ethics.
Despite the amount of information covered in our F&I compliance training, there is a 98% pass rate because AFIP works with students until they master the material. We provide Spanish-language exams, tutoring, accommodations for disabilities and the opportunity to retest when needed.
