The need for education and training in the cards and Payments sector worldwide has never been greater
The Certified Cards and Payments Professional qualification is a unique professional distinction in cards and payments knowledge and expertise that covers all the elements in the industry.
In the developed cards markets of Europe, the Americas, Australia, South Africa, and parts of Asia where growth is now back on the agenda there is a great need to re-invest in people in areas like product management, marketing and sales, risk management, cards operations, IT and systems – as well as quality, performance management, people management, MIS and reporting and the vital area of compliance. Staff resources that were inevitably depleted during the global financial crisis now need to be re-built, fast.
In the emerging and developing markets that are now ripe for credit and other payment cards - such as much of Africa and parts of Asia - cards resources are almost non-existent. They can only be created through education and training.
The cards and payments business is unique owing to its specialised nature and dynamic technology-dependent operational rhythm. Unlike other conventional retail banking and consumer financial services products, cards is a standalone business that traverses divergent sectors - retail banking, retailing, e-commerce, SMEs, corporates, remittances, P2P, airlines, FMCG and many other areas.
The credit card is the most popular unsecured lending product in the world.
