Selecting a debt collections agency for your business can be a job in itself. Since 1939, ACA International has been establishing ethical standards and educating both credit and collection professionals as well as businesses, policymakers and consumers on the most up-to-date debt collection compliance standards.
Placing your company’s customers in the hands of compliance-certified professionals means they have passed rigorous exams, ensuring that they comprehend the significance, urgency and impact of proper compliance procedures.
Beginning the process starts with submitting an application. With training resources like ACA’s study guide and course sessions available online, collection agents can take the class at their own convenience.
