The Accredited NCP Program

The National Check Payments Certification (NCPC) Program is intended, in part, to recognize an elevated level of payments acumen among payment professionals. Through the certification process, National Check Professionals (NCPs) will demonstrate a working knowledge of every significant aspect of the check payment system including products and operations, relevant rules and laws that govern checks, industry standards and fraud and risk mitigation considerations.

Through study to prepare for the exam and on-going continuing education, the NCP is an individual whose education benefits themselves, their employer and their customers.

2024 NCP Exam Dates: April 20th - May 11th

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 out of check or seek out other working roles like remote work, the financial institution faces institutional knowledge loss resulting in a knowledge deficit that impedes the bank’s ability to combat check risk and fraud. 

The NCP Program provides an immediate solution to assist in developing knowledge within your institution through all who earn the NCP designation and maintain the accreditation via its Continuing Education.
