Repossession agents and other recovery industry professionals looking to sharpen their skip-training efforts have another resource on the horizon.
Recovery Industry Services Co. (RISC), a provider of compliance education and training services, announced on Tuesday that it will be releasing an updated version of the Skip-Tracing Certification Course at the North American Repossessors Summit (NARS). The event is set begin next Thursday in Irving, Texas.
The new course is authored by Alex Price, who is the director of risk solutions at Digital Recognition Network (DRN) and also known as “The Skip Guru.” Price delves into the methodologies and practices of skip-tracing to teach the student how to effectively locate skips while staying in compliance with state and federal regulations.
The course will be available in RISC’s online learning management system and covers all aspects of modern skip-tracing, communication tactics, human nature insights, applicable federal law, data security and the “big three” of skip-tracing.
“On the vast majority of repossession accounts, some level of skip-tracing is needed to locate assets that are difficult to contact or find,” said Stamatis Ferarolis, chief executive officer and founder of RISC.
“Alex Price shares his unique methodologies that he honed over the past 30 years to teach students how to deploy effective communication and cyber techniques to locate the consumer who does not want to be found,” Ferarolis continued.
The updated course will be available as a standalone certification program for skip-tracers and to recovery agents as part of continuing education for the CARS program.
Price participated in an episode of the Auto Remarketing Podcast during last year’s North American Repossessors Summit to discuss how robust technology and data availability work nicely with skip-tracing methods honed early in his career.
