ICFE's Certified Credit Report Reviewer Course and Exam Expanded

San Diego, CA. - The Institute of Consumer Financial Education (ICFE) has recently updated and expanded the Independent Study Guide and added 15 questions to the final exam for its Certified Credit Report Reviewer (CCRR®) course. New laws governing the credit card industry, changes in billing practices and new rules on over-draft fees from the Federal Reserve top the list of updates in this exclusive ICFE course.

For individuals who have held the CCRR® designation for three years or longer, the ICFE has a special arrangement for those who want to update their CCRR® credentials. The CCRR® program is accepted for 15 continuing education credits and continuing legal education credits by many organizations and state regulatory licensing agencies, including the AFCPE. Current CCRRs may obtain the expanded materials and take the new exam via email and earn three additional CEs.

A CD Rom with over 40 sample dispute and credit inquiry letters, taken from the ICFE Do-It-Yourself Credit File Correction Guide, and new "credit freeze request" letters are all automated on a CD ROM. Five of ICFE Guides are included with the CCRR® program materials.

There is a rapidly growing need for financial professionals, of every stripe, to learn more about credit reports, the new laws that govern the credit card industry, new billing practices and learn risk management techniques on how to protect customers, clients and consumers against the predations of credit and identity thieves.

One element missing until recently is a standardized credential in credit reporting/reviewing that can be recognized and relied upon by consumers, lenders, businesses and legal people, even law enforcement. The Institute of Consumer Financial Education (ICFE) has bridged that gap with its CCRR® certification.

The nonprofit ICFE has trained, examined and issued credentials to over 5,000 individuals, including privacy consultants, law enforcement, military counselors, lawyers, paralegals, financial planners and credit counselors, real estate agents and mortgage brokers among many others. Special discounts are available for ICFE certificants who enroll in other ICFE courses. Please visit ICFE.info
