Next AFIP certification tests Aug. 18 and 19

November 22, 2010

Testing to gain certification by the Association of Finance and Insurance Professionals will next be held at the CATA Aug. 18 and 19. The one-day test poses 150 questions that must be answered in 200 minutes.


The AFIP certification course is a college-level review and instruction on the federal and state regulations that govern the F&I process. Staffers who are AFIP-certified can generate dealership profit and dramatically reduce the chance of legal action in today’s litigious environment; they are bound to a code of conduct that holds them accountable for their actions.


The CATA negotiated with the AFIP a tuition of $500 for all self-study materials and certification testing. For all personnel who earn certification, the CATA will rebate $250 to the CATA-member dealership, to encourage full participation from every member dealer. The final cost represents a $420 savings compared to AFIP prices charged by other state and metro dealer associations, and private entities.


Self-study materials include a lengthy booklet and six compact discs that can be listened to at the staffer’s pace. The materials are sent upon registration, so register now to afford more study time.
