A Member's Testimonial

WCA ASSISTANCE GREATLY APPRECIATED
I would like to thank the Wisconsin Credit Association in helping me with the overwhelming task of processing applications during our acquisition of another company last fall. We had mailed over a thousand letters to customers requesting updated credit information. As they started coming in, it was impossible for me to process them all on my own. WCA reached out to me and offered assistance with this project. After some discussion as to what they could provide, I sent a list of the largest credit customers. The Association did all the preliminary investigation; looking up legal entity names, accessing Experian and TGX and compiled all this information on a spreadsheet for me. This information was and continues to be extremely helpful in that I can see at a glance, any high risk accounts that I should be aware of and those that are not as big a concern as I become familiar with the new customers we took on in this acquisition.

This was a service I didn't realize was available to me as a member of WCA and the only cost was the Experian reports which I would have paid for had I run them myself. I would encourage others to take advantage of the resources available through WCA. Being a member is much more than belonging to a credit group, it is being part of an organization that is genuinely concerned about our success as Credit Managers as we help our companies grow the business.

Corporate & Community Training

Independent Study Courses are designed to provide a more convenient option to traditional courses, while offering a network of support. Our courses allow you the flexibility to choose the convenient times to study and take exams. They give you the freedom to work on class assignments as time permits; with no mandatory scheduled classes to attend. The recommended time for completing a course is 3 months. While you can work on these classes at your own pace, students are encouraged to follow a weekly syllabus and will find that they are more motivated to complete the course on time. On average students save at least 30% on course fees compared to these courses offered elsewhere. Everything needed for the class, including the book, is included in our course fee.

We offer a wide variety of classes, such as:
  • Accounting
  • Business Credit Principles
  • Business Law
  • Credit Law
  • Financial Statement I & II
  • International Financial Statement Analysis
  • International Financial Management
Each course is worth either 30 or 35 CEU's or CPE's. Take the course by yourself or with others from your company.

Please call the Association for more information at 262-827-2880, or download the registration form here.
