Industry Testimonials - Why You Should Be Certified

As more and more collateral recovery specialists and lenders recognize the importance of professional certification as the most effective tool for risk management in the self-help repossession process we continually receive compliments and endorsements on the C.A.R.S. National Certification Program and our testing method. Read below what collateral recovery professionals are saying:

"I have read, researched and taken many educational courses on countless subjects pertaining to the recovery process. Never have I come across anything so meaningful and so structured, easy to read and cross reference. Not only does this cover all applicable laws and regulations, but it provides meaningful scenarios and helpful information for everyone in the recovery industry, from business owner, to agent/drivers, to office staff."

In this industry it is imperative to have a full knowledge of rights and remedies available to lien holders, debtors and recovery specialists. Your well rounded program more than adequately covers each of these entities in depth. The course teaches you how to make certain you are really "covering your own" in every situation.
