Finding the Right Credit Counseling Course
For individuals or groups seeking a credit counseling course, American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC) offers a variety of programs. A non-profit, Better Business Bureau accredited debt management company, ACCC has been educating consumers about financial and credit issues for more than two decades. We have credit counseling course offerings tailored to a variety of needs and circumstances.
A Credit Counseling Course to Discharge a Bankruptcy
The U.S. Bankruptcy Code requires that individuals who have filed for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy complete a debtor education course from an approved credit counseling organization before their debts can be discharged. ACCC is approved by the Department of Justice to administer this type of credit counseling course. The course takes approximately two hours to complete and covers topics including budget development and prudent credit management. You can take a post-bankruptcy credit counseling course with ACCC in person, over the phone, or online. The course costs $39 per household.
A Credit Counseling Course Together with Debt Consolidation
If you are looking for a credit counseling course as part of an overall solution to debt problems that you’re experiencing, ACCC can help. In an initial free counseling session, an ACCC professional credit counselor can help you assess your current situation, develop a workable budget for you, and provide debt advice including discussing debt consolidation options available through ACCC’s debt management program. The ACCC debt management program consolidates your unsecured debt without requiring a loan, and can often reduce your interest rates and your total monthly payment amount.
If you participate in the ACCC program you will receive our complimentary Financial Peace of Mind course consisting of eight self-directed study chapters and assessments. This self-directed course will help to raise your financial awareness and improve your money management skills, while the debt management program puts you on the path to financial freedom.
A Credit Counseling Course for Your Community Group
Is your community group interested in having a highly informative credit counseling course presented to them? ACCC offers free educational workshops to community groups in the New England states. Available workshops include:
- Understanding Credit
- Money Management
- Identity Theft
- Teaching Children About Money
Participants have responded enthusiastically to ACCC’s workshops, praising the sessions as being interesting and easy to understand.
