Payments University is a unique learning experience that is not a conference or a symposium; this is a two-day training event filled with several topics in two tracks. Choose sessions from either track to fit your own learning needs. Return each year to refresh your payments knowledge as the rules change.
This is a great way to earn AAP continuing education credits; and training may also qualify for NCP & CCM/CTP credits!
