The Center for International Retail Automotive Standards, or CIRAS, has one goal: to help you gain a better understanding of the business you are in. At Jim Schalberg Auto Rental Solutions, we do this by helping you achieve certification as a rental car professional.


CIRAS Professional Certification

Too often, rental operators misunderstand the vehicle rental business, and its associate products and service. Many people in the rental car business think it’s just about renting vehicles, not understanding or caring to learn the rental car business is about the service rendered to the customer that makes a rental business successful.



Why Certification?

  • Certification can lead to better visibility, opportunities, and jobs
  • Provide a foundation of broad and deep understanding
  • Reach not only your short-term job goals, but also position yourself for success in your long-term career as a rental car professional
  • Provides personal satisfaction that you’ve mastered new material
  • Certification sets you apart from everyone else in the auto rental industry
  • Third party certification is effectively validating your skills as a rental car operator

Nothing will make you stand out to insurers or financial institutions like taking on additional education and getting business certifications. It shows you are the kind of person who likes to be the best at what you do.

CIRAS certification is an inexpensive way to show proof that you’re keeping your rental car expertise current and up to date. You’re passing the industry’s measurement of knowledge based on their skill assessments of the rental car professional role.

CIRAS offers Class Room Style sessions at our offices or at any of the Car Rental Show Conventions. We also offer a study-as-you-go program that allows you to be recognized as a Certified Rental Car Professional based on what you already know and gives you an opportunity to add to that base.
