3rd Degree Screening Employees Achieve National Association of Professional Background Screeners Certification

Dynamic Duo Jimmy Waters and Jennell Manion Receive Fair Credit Reporting Act Advanced Certification


Council Bluffs, IA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/13/2016 -- In the age of the internet and the rapid mobilization of technology, there are so many threats to a company's security. Some of the most dangerous dangers can come from within, however, from the dissemination of information, classified data, and vital information. One of the best ways to prevent against these kinds of crimes and problems is in the interview process itself. Background checks have quickly become a prominent part of the evaluation process, oftentimes an essential element in the hiring practice that weeds out unsavory applicants. 3rd Degree Screening Inc. is one of the quintessential companies providing this invaluable service to businesses across the country, and their ranks recently improved. Two of their employees, Jimmy Waters and Jennell Manion recently took the next step in the evolution of their abilities by receiving the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) Advanced Certification from the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS).

The FCRA Advanced Certification Program is intended for background screening professionals looking to demonstrate a commitment to compliance within their organization. The Advanced Certification Program is open to everyone and is perfect for individuals in compliance or legal roles as well as anyone who regularly deals with compliance issues within their organizations such as operations leadership and customer services. Upon completing the course and passing the certification exam, participants receive a certificate valid for two years. FCRA Advanced Certified members of NAPBS are so designated in the online membership directory.

As the Director of Operations, Jimmy Waters is well aware of the significance of these certifications. He commented on them, saying "It is a great honor to be recognized by the NAPBS with the advanced certification, and I know I speak on behalf of Jennell when I say that we are both humbled and encouraged. Fewer than 400 people hold this certification in our industry, which underscores just how meaningful it is for 3DS to maintain two employees in that esteemed group."
