Norm Gagnon, Director of Compliance; Cathy Fontenot, Operations Manager; Kelly Wenzlick & Kirsten DeLaRue, Criminal Record Specialists and Ryan Fadden, Compliance Administrator were the first Edge employees to be awarded this certification.

Norm Gagnon commented, “Edge is very enthusiastic not only for the opportunity to test our knowledge and abilities as it relates to FCRA issues and processes but also our employees’ eagerness to participate in this very important certification. Our goal, in the next few months, is to have all key positions certified by completing the basic FCRA course.
