  • Using A CLLA Certified Agency
    Since 1975, CLLA has been certifying commercial collection agencies. Unlike other agency certifications that are automatically included with membership, CLLA/IACC certification is an additional voluntary process that requires agencies to earn the right to be recognized as industry experts. Meeting or exceeding the standard financial guidelines of this in-depth examination allows CLLA/IACC certified agencies to run their financials correctly from every aspect, which means doing business with them will provide you with the turnkey benefits you need to succeed.

  • Benefits of Certification
    Certified agencies can use their rigorous application screening as a measure of excellence when presenting to the credit community. In both the NACM and CRF, CLLA certification has been the Cadillac of the industry for over 40 years. 90% of all RFP’s ask “are you certified by the CLLA and/or are you a member of the CLLA?”. They ask because it means something and to be pass the certified test demonstrates your agency is one of the elite. After 40 years, the CLLA Certification is proven, and has the backing of the Commercial Law League of America and the International Association of Commercial Collectors, offering you the things that matter most – Strength, Knowledge, and Trust.
