Certified Receivables Compliance Professional (CRCP)

The Certified Receivables Compliance Professional (CRCP) designation is required for each certified business’s Chief Compliance Officer and a voluntary designation for others within the receivables industry. Certification is granted to those individuals who complete industry-relevant education requirements and pass a criminal background screening conducted by the Receivables Management Association International.

Maintaining the CRCP designation is one way to demonstrate to your employer, a future employer, or industry participants that you are committed to staying abreast of recent statutory and regulatory changes and are someone who takes compliance seriously.  In order to maintain certified status – every two years, individuals must pass a criminal background check conducted by RMAI and obtain 24 continuing education credits in subjects related to the receivables management industry, including 2 required ethics credits.

Certified Receivables Compliance Professional (CRCP)

Applicants seeking the CRCP designation must complete continuing education on approved subject matter from RMAI and/or one of its Authorized Education Providers (listed below). Education must come from live classroom settings or webinars.

If seeking company certification, it is a requirement that at least one (1) individual obtain the CRCP designation to fulfill the Chief Compliance Officer duties outlined in the certification program.
