Compliance counts at every level. CFPB examiners are focused on compliance with Appendix E to Part 222 which states that data must be furnished in a standardized and clearly understandable form and manner. The Metro 2® format is an important tool in complying with this directive, allowing consistency in data furnishing across the industry. Whether you are new to credit reporting or have years of experience, the new Metro 2 ® e-learning system will help you strengthen your knowledge about the Metro 2® format. Train your employees with the only Metro 2® e-Learning system developed and authorized by Equifax, Experian, Innovis, and TransUnion!

The CFPB has issued repeated warnings that it will "continue to review furnisher compliance with [FCRA] requirements." Do your employees understand their FCRA/FACTA obligations? CDIA offers two distinct certificate courses that:

1.  Help data furnishers understand their reporting obligations through the FCRA Certificate Program for Data Furnishers.

2.  Provide data users with in-depth training on properly obtaining, handling, and disposing of consumer report information through the FCRA Certificate Program for Data Users.

Employees earn a certificate, valid for two years, upon successful completion.

For groups of ten or more employees, take advantage of CDIA's promotional "Pay Once, Train Everyone" package, allowing you a three month window to enroll an unlimited number of employees for both of these FCRA Certificate Programs at one flat rate.

Reviewed by leading financial services law firms and data security experts, this training program was developed to provide guidance to end users regarding the necessary security processes for handling personally identifiable information (PII).
