In announcing a new version of a seminal text, the National Structured Settlements Trade Association states that a professional designation IT awards is "offered at the University of Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business" when it is merely hosted at the University (see else where in NSSTA website "By hosting the NSSTA CSSC Program at Notre Dame..."). A search of the University of Notre Dame school's website comes up empty on a search for "Certified Structured Settlement Consultant" on May 2, 2011 @930am EDT.

Unless those that actually award the designation (i.e. NSSTA) set a proper example, how can a new generation of Certified Structured Settlement Consultants be expected to properly characterize their credentials to the public?.
Lest we forget... a "pre-Pilates program" history lesson from The Structured Settlement Watchdog™ in 2009:
The structured settlement watchdog cares about the structured settlement industry and the value provided by the Certified Structured Settlement Consultant Designation education program. He earned the CSSC after "4 Days In The Vicinity of Touchdown Jesus" in 1995.
