The Accredited ACH Professional (AAP) designation is designed to recognize and build ACH expertise among payments professionals. Having an AAP on staff promotes the credibility of your team by enhancing knowledge of ACH operations, regulations, products and trends. Are you up for the challenge?
Once you’ve made the decision to sit for the 2021 AAP Exam, registering for this eight-week webinar series is your next step! TCHPA’s AAP Exam Prep Webinar Series is intended for those serious about sitting for the exam in 2021. This curriculum provides the high-level direction and training that candidates need to prepare.
Interactive webinars, exercises and practice tests will help you prepare to take the exam (testing window is October 4 - 23, 2021). Optional online study groups are also encouraged. Pre-course work, additional reading and homework exercises are required. Based on feedback from many who previously passed the exam, an estimated 8-10 hours per week of personal study time is needed for success.
NOTE: Registration for this series will close on Wednesday, July 21, 2021 at 5:00pm ET. Participants are encouraged to visit the Nacha website and register for the exam ahead of time as we will be referencing the AAP Exam Handbook throughout this course.
Live webinars take place each Thursday from July 22 - September 9, 2021.
