I recently received an email from an asset manager recruiting agents for BPOs, however they require that I have a NVSI certification before I go into their system. That certification costs $399. I've been doing okay on my own without spending a lot of money. I did spend a little money to get the NFSTI certification, but even they have been swallowed up by Paradigm which wants everyone to go through their extensive (and expensive) training system. Has any of you been asked for specific certifications to complete BPOs? Does anyone know if this will become the norm?
