The Accredited NCP Program

The National Check Payments Certification (NCPC) Program is intended, in part, to recognize an expert-level check payments acumen professional. A National Check Professional (NCP) has proven knowledge in every significant aspect of check payments and check products, relevant industry standards, and fraud and risk mitigation.

By studying for the exam and then brushing up through on-going continuing education, NCP’s are individuals whose education benefits themselves, their employer and their customers.

2025 NCP Exam Dates: April 19th - May 10th

Why we need Certified Check Professionals:

Checks are as important as ever. Each year, billions of checks are written valued at trillions of dollars!

Traditionally, as people retired from check operations or seek out other positions, financial institutions face the loss of institutional knowledge which results in a knowledge deficit that impedes their ability to combat check risk and fraud. 

The NCP Program provides an immediate solution to assist in developing knowledge through all who earn the NCP designation and maintain the accreditation via its continuing education.
