Automotive Dealership Institute Wins F&I Golden Eagle

November 14, 2006

Saying it fills a chasm in F&I training, David Robertson, executive director of the Association of Finance Insurance Professionals (AFIP), awarded the Automotive Dealership Institute (ADI) with its F&I Eagle Award during a ceremony held at the F&I Conference & Expo in Las Vegas.

“This award is given out to the people that make a difference in F&I certification training,” said Robertson. “And ADI is probably one of the most successful training schools in the nation.”

Honoring those who have made compliance and its promotion and implementation a primary business goal, the F&I Golden Eagle award is given out only when a company or individual makes an outstanding contribution to industry-specific compliance standards. For ADI, its dedicated training program has made it a key platform for instructing F&I professionals about compliance issues currently governing the industry.

“We appreciate and are flattered by the recognition,” said Alan Algan, CEO and executive director of ADI, who accepted the award. “As we’ve heard throughout this week’s F&I Conference & Expo, training is a vital piece of the finance and insurance industry. It is something that ADI has understood and perfected since its founding.”

Based in Scottsdale, Ariz., ADI is certified under the Arizona State Board for private postsecondary education, and touts a group of principals with more than 50 years of industry experience. In April, the training institution signed an agreement with the Institute of Ethical Behavior, allowing ADI to incorporate the institution’s nationally recognized ethics training into its own comprehensive four-week Automotive Finance and Insurance Management program.
