Last updated September 28, 2022 (typos and address)
I vow to abide by the Credit Consultants Association code of ethics as listed at http://ccasite.org/ethics.html.
I vow to cause no harm to the public and If by chance I do cause harm or error, I will rectify it right away either with a refund or job satisfaction.
I vow to provide all of my clients with an agreement (contract) that outlines the agreed-upon terms of services to be rendered. Also the proper disclosures for federal and state law.
I vow to resolve all consumer complaints within 30 days. If a complaint goes unresolved or is satisfied for a lack of performance spelled out in your agreement, or you did not provide your client with an agreement, you are in violation of CCA policies. Point 9 shows what will occur if there is a violation. If there is a disagreement between you and the client, we will look to the agreement signed. Then we will make the decision if there is a violation or just a business disagreement to be resolved according to the agreement signed. It is our goal to protect or member as well as the public.
I vow not to perform Jamming or credit sweeps.
I vow not to make false or misleading statements or lie about results.
I vow not to just challenge items without my client's approval or authorization.
I vow to be clear about the service I'm offering. I understand that I'm responsible for the net impression of the services I offer. This means if my client has the impression that I am performing a service that I'm not, I will clear up this understanding right away and if they feel misled, I will refund their money.
If there are violations of our policies: we will terminate your membership and certification, give you and your company an "F-Rating on our website, and post a warning on http://certificationforfeited.com/ website warning the public to avoid doing business with you and your company. In addition, you will NOT have the right to use our logos and designations anywhere and they must be removed promptly. Board Certified Credit Consultants®, "Board Certified Credit Repair Specialist®" Certified Credit Repair Specialist®, Certified Credit Score Consultant®, Certified Credit Repair Processor®.
I vow to present myself in appropriate casual or a business attire on social media posts and default profile images in groups when using our logos and certifications. e.g. no shirtless, topless, or erotic type imagery when representing our brand.

Refund And Payments Policy
We understand that in some cases this program is not for everyone. On a case, by case basis, we will consider a full refund. When running a special that only covers the exam and certification fees, there are absolutely no refunds. In such a case what you are paying for is to take the exams and received your certification after passing. The membership and training material will be FREE in that case. However, if you have NOT taken any exam attempts, or downloaded anything, we will refund your money within a 30-day period in most cases. Funds collected and paid on behalf of our members for our software partner CLG is in direct benefit to our member and not CCA, Inc. We only collect the funds and pay for services on behalf of our members to obtain a substantial discount on the use of their ProPlan application for 12 months. CCA is not affiliated with this software partner in any way and members participating in the program agree to their terms of service. Once CCA collects and pays the funds, the member communicates directly with our software partner and not CCA. There are no refunds from CCA on this matter and if a member submits a chargeback for paid service; said member agrees to pay all collections and attorneys fee in this matter.
Otherwise, All orders and membership sales of material are final upon signing up for membership. You have 12 months to take the exams. If you do not take the exam within that time frame, you do not have to pay again just renew your membership. Please understand that we are a non-profit training and watchdog trade association similar to the Better Business Ass. and our membership is not an internet sales program we operate at cost. Our system was designed to provide a competent test for individuals seeking certification in the credit service industry. We do not offer any money-back guarantee for such a program. No books and materials or testing fees are refundable. There are costs associated with an individual just signing up for membership. The non-refundable Testing fee is normally $99 for each exam and a certification fee of $75 and a membership fee of $29 or any discount price offered, are included in the price, and all shipped items are POD with raw material costs. In addition, by signing up for our ultimate plan you agree that if we provide refunds, we will charge the full cost of the membership applied for. For example, our BCCC/CCSC program is $199 regardless of any special, if manuals are downloaded, we will charge this fee plus our standard $25 administration fee. You can transfer your membership, books, and materials to another party that we will accept on your behalf. It is our goal to work with you in any way we can to assist in this matter. Our operating cost is greater than the materials we offer and you are paying for reproduction. If we do provide a refund, if you download the Starting A Credit Repair Business manual, there is a $47 fee and it can not be refunded.
