A tipster (send in your tips here) told me that the International Association of Professional Debt Arbitrators is now offering a competency certification called the Certified Credit Counseling Specialist (CCCS). This new training module is available to current members for no additional cost.
We have also evolved by offering a complete debt relief education to our members and a second certification, with this additional training and certification IAPDA dual certified members are now able to professionally advise their consumer clients on all debt relief options available to them for solving overwhelming debt problems. – Source
I have no idea what is in the new training module but clearly the IAPDA is making the move to bring credit counseling inside debt settlement organizations to create a larger field know as debt relief which will encompass both debt settlement and credit counseling solutions by IAPDA trained counselors.
