A Recognized Path to Success 

Among credit management professionals, the professional certification program is respected and appreciated. Not only is participation in the program a mark of distinction throughout the profession, but it offers you a wide range of important benefits:

Expanded Knowledge:
By reading, studying and preparing for the exams, you'll gain a thorough, up-to-date understanding of every aspect of credit management, including a look at future trends and strategies essential to your success.

Career Opportunities:
Certification tells employers that you are motivated, accomplished and current in your knowledge of credit management skills. It indicates that you are actively working to maintain high standards in the field.

Heightened Professional Recognition:
NACM's professional designations attest to experience, knowledge, ability, accomplishment, leadership and contributions to the credit and financial fields. Designations raise the level of respect among colleagues in business credit management and between professionals in the financial community. Proudly display your designation with your name on letterhead, business cards and all forms of address.
