Not much. A little training/fine tuning maybe. Credit anlayst have a little job specific education...maybe from NACM. Your company might pay for this. But, you do not need a other experience to get the position with many companies. Some companies, depending on the size of the accounts, may demand actual experience.

Good luck.

Being a credit analyst, you need to learn how to read both Equifax and TransUnion bureaus. You will need to learn how to assess the risk with each different person based on many factors. I hear there are courses here in Canada, but none that are free. I would stay with collections and move up with a company into credit. Good Luck! :)
