Accreditation is important when it comes to credit counseling for a number of reasons: there's prestige behind it, you know you're not only dealing with a professional, but a REPUTABLE one. And how do you know that?
OTHER reputable organizations support it. Consider them like 'professional' references. The Better Business Bureau, for instance, is a complete no-brainer. And if you want to make sure you're getting an endorsement specifically within the industry, it would be in the credit counselor's best interest to have a reference and accreditation from the National Foundation for Credit Counseling.
So ask about those accreditations. You'll ensure you're working with a prime-time player in the credit repair biz.
