SAF Advanced Academy App

SAF Advanced Academy – learning at your own pace

The SAF Advanced Academy, a new app-based learning platform designed to provide study materials at the learner’s fingertips.


The relaunch of the Specialist Automotive Finance (SAF) programme from the Finance & Leasing Association (FLA), brings an improved range of training options for dealership staff to further increase their professionalism, skills and knowledge.

SAF Advanced, is a Level 3 qualification that gives industry professionals a formal recognition for their finance knowledge, awarded by The London Institute of Banking & Finance. 


The learning app was developed for the FLA by the finance specialist FIMTRAC F&I team here at RTS Group. The app contains the established SAF Advanced syllabus, presented in an interactive format where the learner can track their progress, identify areas where more study is needed and test themselves to check own development.


Commenting on the launch, Adrian Dally, Head of Motor Finance at the FLA, said: “Motor finance is the third largest market in the consumer credit sector, so the current level of scrutiny from regulators and the media should be considered the new normal”.  


 Staff training is therefore more important than ever, and the new suite of SAF courses provides a training option for everyone, regardless of their level of experience. Now is the time to make sure that all customer-facing staff have the skills they need to help your business thrive.”

The new app is available to download on a smartphone, preview the demo below:
