Do you qualify to attend?

Please do not attempt registration if: 

  • You are attending because ‘the boss is sending you’. This program is for volunteers. No passengers – only crew. We are going to work hard and have some fun too. If you don’t want to be there – don’t come. We don’t want you there either and no doubt you can find a better use of your time. 
  • Not recommended for 3rd party collection agencies. Our focus is on collections with a major in customer retention and rehabilitation.
  • The program is content-rich and highly participative. You will be asked and required to be a member of a team and sometimes a team leader.
  • Do not expect a certificate to designate you a ‘member of the pride’ for simply ‘attending’. Our certificates are earned via assignments and testing.
