What is Individual Certification?

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 continuing education on approved subject matter from RMAI and/or one of its Authorized Education Providers (listed below) and pass a criminal background screening conducted by the RMAI.
  • Education must come from live classroom settings or webinars.
  • Maintain the CRCP designation every two years 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.
  • CRCP for Chief Compliance Officer of a Certified Receivables Business (CRB) or Certified Receivables Vendor (CRV)
    • 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 (Standard A13 for CRB & Standard 101 for CRV).
    • If replacing a current Chief Compliance Officer of a Certified Company, it is a requirement that the replacement is already CRCP certified or, if not, obtains their CRCP designation within six (6) months of taking on the Chief Compliance Officer role (Article 5.5a of the Governance Document)
