I have had the CTRC designation for a couple of years. It has helped for the fact that clients that come into my office for meetings see the certificate and we begin a conversation. From our conversations I have received 5 referrals in the last 6 months just by current clients seeing that we do tax representation. Having the designation lends credibility to you as a professional. It is definitely worth the time and effort to get the CTRC designation.
