2016-01-18 National Alliance of Buy Here, Pay Here Dealers Becomes Authorized Education Provider with DBA International

Sacramento, CA – January 18, 2016 – DBA International is pleased to announce that the National Alliance of Buy Here, Pay Here Dealers (NABD) has become an Authorized Education Provider. Those in the receivables industry can earn continuing education credits toward DBA International certification for completion of in-person, live webinar, or online courses offered through NABD.

            NABD earned the Authorized Education Provider designation by demonstrating excellence in providing instruction to the buy here, pay here (BHPH) industry. The association is dedicated to improving the quality of BHPH dealers through education, ongoing training, and by promoting the interests of self-finance dealers nationwide. NABD hosts two large, well-attended conferences each year, two of which DBA International board members have participated in as presenters in 2015.

            NABD President and Founder Ken Shilson said, “NABD is very pleased that DBA International has selected us as an Authorized Education Provider. As a special interest group, we are organized to work with other associations, like DBA, for the betterment of the subprime auto finance industry. The BHPH industry faces several new legal and regulatory challenges, and we are working diligently to help our members successfully meet them. Our evolving relationship with DBA International will provide NABD members with access to experts in debt collection, compliance, loss mitigation, and with new capital market resources. It will benefit both organizations. NABD plans to have DBA International conduct an interactive workshop at our National BHPH Conference at the Wynn in Las Vegas on May 24-26, 2016.”

            “Auto Finance Receivables and the subprime market are growing at an unprecedented pace,” noted Jan Steiger, Executive Director of DBA International. “Many of our members already work in this area, and many more are exploring opportunities to expand in this asset class. As an Authorized Education Provider, our members will benefit from the expertise and resources of NABD’s education offerings and conferences as it simplifies the process for obtaining certification credits for our members.”
