Accounts Payable Association Certified Training Courses

Accounts Payable Association certified training courses are transforming the AP industry by offering the opportunity to gain a recognised and valued certification.

Unlike other business functions, Accounts Payable professionals have not had access to certified training from a professional body.

This has led to complaints of no visible career paths, not being appreciated, and feeling undervalued. Individuals that wanted to take actions to advance their own careers had few options.

Managers had no resources to support staff training or succession planning. When interviewing staff there was limited quantifiable evidence of capability available.

In a recent survey we carried out, 70% of AP professionals said access to qualifications and training would assist their professional development.

What Price do you put on your Career?

Our courses offer career progression and will always cost less than the pay increases you should secure in the job market after completing them.
