CCCS Now Offered by IAPDA as an Additional Certification

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.

Sincerly,


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.

  1. The IAPDA first notified me on March 23, I took the test along with my 2 year continuing education for CDS…good information, major improvement as compared to the first set of mod’s I studied with. It’s good to have both designations and with all the regulatory changes coming it may just become a requirment.

  3. If we speak with a potential client and determine that they have sufficient income to make the payment required, have credit rating concerns or are nervous in any way about collectors/collection tactics we will suggest they consider a debt management plan and we will refer this client to a credit counseling agency. These may be people we would have been speaking with anyway but we do now cover this option in as much detail as DS and BK.

  4. So I’m curious. Are you now able to locate some consumers that are contacting you that are appropriate candidates for a debt management plan?

  5. As mentioned in another post our company requires all staff that communicates with a client or potential client to now complete both of these certifications. We originally only took the CDS training for debt settlement and now also complete the new course to understand credit counseling and debt management plans and how they could benefit a consumer. The feedback on the training course materials has been very positive by management and staff.
