ACH Network Certificate

The curriculum for earning this certificate offers a thorough explanation of the ACH Network. Those completing the certificate program will have a stronger foundation of this thriving payments network. 

Multi-Functional and Flexible 

The ACH Network Certificate is multi-functional and flexible. For those wishing to achieve the Accredited ACH Professional (AAP) designation, we recommend a two-fold preparation method of successfully completing both the ACH Network Certificate and the AAP Exam Preparation Program. Completing both has consistently resulted in exemplary first-time pass rates. 

The webinars in the ACH Network Certificate also qualify for continuing education (CE) credits towards the Accredited ACH Professional (AAP) designation. Take one or take them all! NACHA limits apply for the number of CE credits which may be earned in a calendar year. Visit NACHA for more details.
