Many people wonder if there are any education requirements necessary before embarking in a repossession field. There is a small school requirement in certain states. However as far as college goes, it is not a requirement while certain schooling can lower your amount of sponsorship time by half. In order to do that, criminal justice classes from any accredited community college will usually suffice.
Not only will that short term education reduce your sponsorship time, depending on what choice in repossession you are looking in can probably raise your income level and leave room for the ability to become repossession manager or skip trace manager.
We always recommend taking classes on learning self defense. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training is extremely beneficial just in case someone out of the blue decides to jump you. It is always preferred if you can handle yourself. Never to fight or start a fight, simply to defend yourself from unwanted or unexpected violence. A repossession agent in many states cannot carry a weapon. So being able to defend yourself is important.
This type of training and college education will certainly be beneficial on your resume and give you the upper hand when applying for jobs.
In some states they require 40 hours schooling and a two hour test but no college school work is needed. The link to the schools available will posted on this page.
