Achieve Cards and Payments Certification

The Retail Banking Academy® provides high-level training and education in cards and payments. We have a programme that includes three levels of study and exams and which leads you to our professional qualification of Certified Cards and Payments Professional, with the designation of CCPP when joining RBA Membership.

How long does it take to become a Certified Cards and Payments Professional?

To gain the Certified Cards and Payments Professional (CCPP) qualification you will need to pass three exams. On average, it takes three years to obtain the CCPP qualification, if you sit one exam per year. However, it is possible to complete all 3 levels within 18 months if you sit one exam every six months. 


The route to becoming a CRB

What is the structure of the programme?

Academy certification is achieved upon successful completion of three separate programmes, each one culminating in an exam. In order to describe yourself as a Certified Cards and Payments Professional and use the CCPP designation, you must join RBA Membership. At each level, RBA Membership entitles you to use the corresponding letters after your name.
