The Accreditation Program curriculum includes:

  • Certified Asset Recovery Specialist (CARS) Certification Courses covering business ethics, data security, and skip tracing taught by Stamatis Ferarolis and Joe Taylor of Recovery Industry Services Company
  • Data Security and Skip Tracing Class conducted by Alex Price of MasterFiles and Michele Stuart of JAG Investigations
  • Intro to Online Collateral Remarketing lead by Zach Hallowell of OPENLANE and Rick O’Connor of SmartAuction
  • Best Practices session hosted by various regional business professionals, including DRN, the leader in license plate recognition (LPR) technology

The daylong program also includes a networking luncheon for all participants.

Focused on innovation, education and its Best In Class approach, ARA developed the Accreditation Program to provide its lenders and members with the opportunity to get trained and certified. The program is a beneficial opportunity to learn how to improve your professionalism and your company’s bottom line.
