PREPARE: Online FPC and CPP Exam Prep

With many of us adjusting to working remotely or in some sort of isolation, it’s more important than ever to focus on personal well-being and goals.

If you have a goal of professional development or FPC or CPP certification this year, stay on track with the newly launched 2020 PayTrain® programs. PayTrain® Fundamentals and PayTrain® are offered entirely online, allowing you to study and learn from wherever you are. And if you’d prefer having extra guidance, you can choose to have an online instructor lead you through your studies.

TEST: Take the FPC or CPP Exam From Home

Now you can take the FPC or CPP test from the comfort of your home or office with the new remote proctoring option. Start preparing now for the upcoming Fall Exam Window which runs from September 5 – November 7, 2020.

For more details on remote proctoring and the certification exam windows, visit APA’s website.
