What is a Certified Structured Settlement Consultant?
Certified Structured Settlement Consultant, also known by the acronym CSSC, is a professional designation or credential that is earned as the result of successful completion of a professional credentialing program established by the National Structured Settlements Trade Association (NSSTA) in conjunction with the University of Notre Dame. The CSSC training program is hosted annually at the Stayer Education Center, at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend Indiana. NSSTA has been awarding the CSSC to NSSTA members who qualify since 1994.
