Yes. However they do not teach you the business or help you get started. One national organization requires that you must have at least 1-year affiliation in the business and have two other process servers recommend you for membership.
Les Victor has several of his students that belong to this organization, in fact a member of the Board of Directors is a former student of his. After you have been in the business for a year and know what you are doing, this organization is worth looking into. In the meantime, SPS will help you get started in the business, plus the cost to join SPS is much more affordable and we provide you with many educational benefits. In fact, to the best of our knowledge SPS is the only organization that provides a manual on how to get started. We also offer a consultation service to help our members succeed in business.

Good luck!! Most process servers are afraid of competition and probably would not encourage you to compete with them! You may be told it's dangerous or they have all the business themselves! If that is the case...attend our workshop/seminar. We will provide you with materials to help you get started.
