  1. I have been a credit manager for over 25 years but have never obtained Certification Credentials. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration, and I had taken Business Principles, Fundamentals of Accounting and Cost Accounting along with Business Law when in College. I would like to obtain certification but do not want to have to take the courses again if I do not have to. Please advise what path you recommend.

  2. Manuel,
    You may not be required to take the retake courses, your first step would be to register with the NACM’s Education Department and supply them with your transcripts. They will review and determine if you need additional courses. I would be happy to discuss the process in detail with you or anyone interested in continuing education please feel free to call me at 702-259-2622 or email
