Checks still play a significant role in payments so it’s important to know the legal framework, operational and regulatory requirements and responsibilities for compliance. The NCP designation is designed to recognize and build check expertise. Having an NCP on staff promotes the credibility of your team by enhancing knowledge of check operations, regulations, products and trends. Are you up for the challenge?

Attendees must be familiar with the criteria related to their designation and are responsible for submitting requests for continuing education credits to the appropriate organization.
