IAPDA features the IAPDA Accredited Service Center accreditation. The company of qualified members can display the IAPDA Accredited Service Center logo on their company website and marketing materials confirming their company’s overall level of participation in IAPDA education and certification programs.
Companies of IAPDA members can qualify for this accreditation by committing to IAPDA training and certification of their key staff members. Levels of participation are determined by the number of company employees who complete IAPDA programs and attain certifications, including continuing education and re-certification every two years. Platinum level companies have over 100 currently certified IAPDA members, Gold level companies have 25-99 currently certified IAPDA members, Silver level companies have 10-24 currently certified IAPDA members and Bronze level companies have 2-9 currently certified IAPDA members.
Complete industry education and professional certification is more important than ever in the debt relief industry. IAPDA programs provide a standardized foundation for the debt consultant’s professional knowledge, as well as an objective measure by which consumers can judge the expert they turn to for help.
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 company owners and top consumer debt experts agree. They heartily recognize and endorse the complete debt relief education and the certifications earned by IAPDA members.
