The Association of Finance & Insurance Professionals (AFIP) announced that Judy Vann, President and Founder of JV Solutions and Director of Education of the NJ CAR Academy, is the first person in the United States to successfully complete the newly released AFIP Certification Program Master Course final exam. In his congratulatory remarks, AFIP Executive Director, David Robertson underscored the challenges of posting a score of 80 percent or higher on the sanctioning body’s most stringent course of study. “Based on the current roster of AFIP Certified F&I practitioners, captive lender field operatives, and professional trainers, less than seven percent even qualify for Master Certification, according to David Robertson, AFIP Executive Director. Judy drew on three decades of retail sales and F&I experience, as well as her exposure to the Basic and Senior curricula, working as an AFIP Accredited Facilitator, to pass the Master Course test. NJ CAR dealers who utilize the NJ CAR Academy and JV Solutions to prepare their F&I personnel for the AFIP final exams find that their employees post passing scores well above the industry average. The NJ CAR Academy has an AFIP Exam scheduled for April 19, 2012 and will post additional review classes and exams through the end of the year.
