Receivables Management Certification Program

DBA International created its “gold standard” certification program in 2012 to promote uniform, consumer-oriented, best practice standards for the receivables industry. Highly regarded within the industry and regulatory community, DBA’s Certification Program includes a mandatory annual review of the program requirements to ensure that they evolve with industry best practices and incorporate any new statutory, regulatory and judicial developments.

DBA International’s certification program offers professional designations to companies and individuals operating and employed within the U.S. receivables industry. Information and resources needed to pursue company- or individual-based certification, along with the application(s), can be found on the Certification Resources page.

The Certification Council has completed a review of the Receivables Management Certification Program and the Council’s proposed revisions are posted on this page. DBA members are encouraged to review the edits and email their comments to no later than October 30, 2015.
