Looking for a new career? Want to take your payroll career to the next level? Want to ensure your organization is in compliance? The payroll industry is always changing. Each year, federal, state and local legislative changes affect how payroll is administered. PayTrain 1 and PayTrain 2 are training tools that will help keep you and your organization’s compliance up-to-date and provide excellent preparation for the FPC and CPP certification exams through the American Payroll Association (APA). There are no payroll experience requirements to take the FPC exam. To be eligible to sit for the CPP exam, APA requires that candidates meet specific payroll experience or educational criteria.
