"Consumers deserve to work with debt relief consultants who totally understand all the debt relief options..."
Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) December 19, 2011
International Association of Professional Debt Arbitrators (IAPDA), long the source of the debt relief industry’s leading certification training programs, now features two certifications for top debt professionals. The CDS Certified Debt Specialist designation ensures the consultant has complete knowledge and understanding of the debt settlement option and CCCS Certified Credit Counseling Specialist designation ensures complete knowledge and understanding of the credit counseling and debt management option. IAPDA continues to provide professionals with the education they need to offer consumers the best, customized solutions to their debt problems,
Laurence Larose, IAPDA Executive Director says, “Consumers deserve to work with debt relief consultants who totally understand all the debt relief options available and who can effectively guide them back to a debt free life. Leading Debt Relief company owners and top consumer debt advisors agree. They heartily recognize and endorse the complete debt relief education and the certifications earned by IAPDA dual certified members.”
Professional education and consultant certification is more important than ever in the debt relief industry. IAPDA programs provide a standardized foundation for debt consultant’s professional knowledge, as well as an objective measure by which clients can judge the debt relief expert they turn to for help. As more consumers choose debt relief, and more practitioners enter the field, certified debt professionals enjoy an inherent advantage in this competitive marketplace.
But don’t take IAPDA’s word for it.
Bills.com, a prominent consumer debt portal, advises consumers, “An effective step for finding a reputable debt settlement / resolution company is to determine if the company is a member of the International Association of Professional Debt Arbitrators (IAPDA). The IAPDA requires that its members have their debt consultants and account executives pass a certification test that requires them to understand and communicate the pros and cons of debt settlement to their clients.” Bills.com is home to the award winning and much heralded Debt Coach tool, which brings transparency and empowerment directly to consumers, so that they can make the best financial decisions for their personal situation. Bills.com also has thousands of articles and consumer guides to empower consumers to take control of their finances.
