ifs has been named as a finalist in the 2016 TRI awards, for the Certificate in Consumer Debt Collection (CertDC®) and the impact the qualification has had on the industry.
ifs has been chosen as a finalist for the 2016 Turnaround, Restructuring and Insolvency (TRI) awards.
Now in its ninth year, the Awards “champion experts undertaking outstanding work in corporate rescue, as well as those making critical investments in distressed and struggling businesses”.
Named as a finalist in the “Education/Training Provider of the Year” category, ifs was recognised for the contribution its Certificate in Consumer Debt Collection (CertDC®) qualification has made within the industry since its launch in 2014.
CertDC® was designed in partnership with leading financial providers alongside other industry professionals to meet growing demand in the debt collection industry, following a change in regulator from the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
ifs faces stiff competition in the finals of the Awards, with other entries in this category being submitted by BPP, Enterprise Chambers, Insolvency Support Services (ISS), LexisNexis, Neil Taylor Insolvency and R3.
The Awards are scheduled to be held on 19 October 2016 at the London Hilton.
Michael Nicholls, Relationship Director at ifs, said:
“In the short time that it has been running we have already seen the immense value that CertDC® has provided to the industry at large and the professionals who have taken it. Being named as a finalist in the TRI Awards is a great honour and provides recognition, not only of this value, but also of the hard work the qualification development team has undertaken to provide a rigorous qualification that enables professionals to operate to the highest industry standards and the consumers they seek to serve.”
