Elaine Golden, Director of Sales with FRS, the leading provider of technology and services to the background screening industry, has successfully completed the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) Advanced FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) Certification Program. After originally attaining the NAPBS Basic FCRA Certification in 2015, Elaine was among the first group of individuals to take the Advanced FCRA online course offering and exam with a successful completion.
The FCRA Advanced Certification is the highest level of certification for background screeners offered by the NAPBS. The Advanced Certification Program is intended for background screening professionals in leadership positions and those who set compliance policy and make compliance decisions for their organization. The course content and exam focus on complex and cutting-edge FCRA compliance issues.
The NAPBS was formed in 2003 as a not-for-profit trade association and its mission is to advance excellence in the screening profession. FRS is proud to be one of the original founding members of this association which represents the interests of more than 700 member companies around the world that offer tenant, employment and background screening.
Due to continuously changing laws and provisions which impact the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Advanced FCRA Certification is valid for a two-year period, after which time Elaine plans to complete a recertification of these credentials. The Advanced FCRA Certification exam is offered two times per year at the NAPBS annual and mid-year conferences, as well as recently being offered online.
We are very proud of Elaine and her excellent achievement in obtaining this certification. At FRS, our team has always maintained an extremely strong focus on compliance in the technology solutions we provide, as well as in our consulting with the 200+ CRAs who are running their business on FRS technologies. This also includes consulting to the new client prospects we speak with on a daily basis. As our lead sales director, Elaine regularly consults with potential clients regarding our technology solutions and how we can help their businesses stay in compliance in this ever-changing industry and legal landscape. We are pleased that Elaine now has the NAPBS certification to go along with her compliance knowledge that she utilizes in her work for us here each day.”Phil Chapman, FRS President
