Consumer Credit Compliance Certification

Recertification Process

 

Achieving recognition as a Certified Compliance Professional from the National Automotive Finance Association is a long-term commitment to yourself, your career, and your organization. Recertification is the process of renewing one’s certification status. To maintain your certification you must be prepared to continue to learn, grow and increase your knowledge of federal and state laws and regulations that govern consumer credit including changes in the law and developments in the regulatory environment. With recertification you are demonstrating your commitment to staying current in the field of Consumer Financial Services.

All existing certifications are valid for two years from the date of the issuance of the recertification process (April 25, 2016) and every two years thereafter. Future graduates of the Consumer Credit Compliance Certification Program have two years from the date of their graduation to meet the requirements.

PROFESSIONALS MUST EARN 12 CREDITS EVERY TWO YEARS TO QUALIFY FOR RECERTIFICATION
