TRANSACT is the one show focused solely on the business of payments!
"Powered by Electronic Transactions Association (ETA), the world’s largest payments industry trade group, it’s the place where innovators gather to make the deals that shape the industry."
I am super excited to once again attend Transact! Not only is it held in one of the most exciting cities in the world (Las Vegas), it is showcasing the latest in groundbreaking technology, security trends, offers networking opportunities and much, much more that those of us in payments find fascinating!
Of particular interest to me this year is the CPP Review Course. For those of you unfamiliar with "CPP", it stands for "Certified Payments Professional".
PURPOSE OF THE ETA CPP
The ETA CPP program sets the standard for professional performance in the payments industry and is a symbol of excellence. It signifies that an individual has demonstrated the knowledge and skills required to perform competently in today’s complex electronic payments environment.
As a result of increasing governmental scrutiny and regulation, growing security and compliance requirements, and a host of emerging issues and trends, today’s payments professionals need to have a broad knowledge of the industry, the challenges and forces shaping its future. They must demonstrate mastery not only of sales, but of pricing and interchange; business process, operations and workflow; products and solutions; risk; and regulatory, compliance and security matters as well.
With the ETA CPP designation, ETA codifies the significant increase in knowledge required of payments professionals on the job. For more information on the benefits of becoming a CPP I encourage you to visit ETA's website for more information: http://www.electran.org/certification/
We can thank ETA for providing the opportunity for payments professionals to grow in their knowledge and earn this certification. I highly encourage anyone in the payments industry or interested in the industry to explore ETA's website. It provides tons of helpful information that is priceless!
