Educational Opportunities

Events are a great way to earn most, if not all of your recommended amount of yearly continuing education credits. 1.2 credits are accrued for every 50 minutes of training. 

NACHA’s Annual PAYMENTS Conference

PAYMENTS brings together those who are driving and adopting innovative payments solutions and practices, enabling them to share information to create common goals that unite progress with clarity of purpose. This unique conference experience encapsulates the players and thought-leadership that are setting the agenda for the future, and propels industry dialogue forward to ensure the continued strength and integrity of the ACH Network and the U.S. payments ecosystem, and their responsiveness to the customer. With over 130 sessions and workshops, you can accrue up to 17.5 AAP credits, plus 2.4 credits per workshop.


The Payments Institute (TPI)

Attending The Payments Institute gives you needed knowledge and skills to succeed in the payments industry. As an AAP, you can accrue 20.0 AAP credits over the course of three days of intensive courses within six Schools of Study.



Webinars are a convenient, cost effective way to earn AAP continuing education credits. Spread out over the course of a year, each 1.5 hour webinar is worth 1.8 AAP credits. As an AAP, even if you cannot attend the live webinar, you can accrue up to 10 credit hours of self-study per year, and webinars are a great way to meet that goal.
