Nacha, Faster Payments Council, and Payments Associations Announce Accredited Faster Payments Professionals Program

Nacha, the U.S. Faster Payments Council (FPC), and our nation’s Payments Associations have announced a first-of-its-kind alliance to create the Accredited Faster Payments Professional (AFPP) program. This partnership demonstrates a cross-industry collaboration to benefit the entire payments community.

The AFPP will offer a rigorous and centralized accreditation program allowing payments professionals to demonstrate their expertise across all faster payment types, including Same Day ACH, instant payments, and wire.

“This cooperation among Nacha, the FPC and the Payments Associations marks a new chapter of teamwork and will provide a single industrywide accreditation where payments professionals can demonstrate their faster payments proficiency,” said Nacha President and CEO Jane Larimer. “The program will ensure consumers and businesses can continue to trust that the professionals handling their payments have demonstrated an expertise in the multitude of payment methods they utilize.”
