CK 600N DEBT COLLECTION & REVENUE MANAGEMENT FOR NATIONAL INSURANCE SCHEMES 

I would highly recommend this debt collection training program to others, because of its comprehensiveness.  Debt collections methods, customer relations, and negotiation skills are key to this field.  The principles outlined by the instructor, were invaluable to my work environment and practical in any job setting.  I hope to further enhance my relationships with customers, and it will also help me to keep in mind that the success of the organization depends on everyone applying unified principles established by our organization.  Also, I was very surprised that this debt collection field is so encompassing, and my eyes are now wide open with the knowledge I gained.
The instructor’s communication was excellent, and effective examples were used to illustrate many of the ideas presented.  I liked that the training was interactive, and each participant was very engaged with the activities that we had to do.

This overall training program was excellent!  I learned some very effective ways to encourage debtors to make full payment on accounts, or to make arrangements for partial payment plans for clients.  This is a major part of my job, and I can use the methods taught in this training.  Also, the facilitator of the workshop offered some other sound, valuable and useful information that I plan to use on a daily basis.  By attending this program, it will help me to apply the concepts I learned, as well enable me to become the best debt collector in my department.
The facilitator’s teaching style was relaxed, yet effective, and very knowledgeable in the field of debt collections.

Everything I learnt in this program was valuable!  The training was relevant, timely and measurable.  Already, I can see many aspects of this program being incorporated into my daily job responsibilities.  There are many other aspects that can, and will improve my effectiveness in my organization, for example, customer service, improving my letters to customers, and practicing and improving my listening skills.

This program will enhance my relationships with my customers and will be a reminder that the success of my organization depends on me and everyone applying themselves according to procedures.

The entire program was very comprehensive and of great value to me.  However, the parts about management, empowerment, staff motivation, effective use of debt collection software to capture and analyze critical data, were areas that were of most value to me.  I will be implementing some areas of the debt collections process in my work.   Many areas of the program are interrelated to our daily activities, and will assist us with improving and implementing strategies within the organization.

Sections 26-37 were very informative, as it dealt in detail with the correct procedure to collect outstanding debts.  It points the deficiencies in the operations of our departmental procedures.

In general, this program will improve the performance of offers, provided the workers are given the authority to implement the recommendations provided in the program.  However, bureaucratic process still exists and change will not be easily achieved.

The program was enlightening, and serves to improve the collections of outstanding debts.
