Maintaining Your APRP Accreditation

CE Credit Requirements

Accredited Payments Risk Professionals (APRP) are required to maintain their status by earning sixty (60) Continuing Education (CE) credits within the five-year accreditation period, with no more than twenty (20) credits completed per year.

Fifty (50) minutes of educational activity is equal to one CE credit. Example: For a 90-minute webinar, divide 90 (minutes of webinar) by 50 (minutes per CE credit) to arrive at 1.8 APRP CE credits for that webinar. A half-day workshop (180 minutes) on a qualifying topic would earn 3.6 APRP CE credits.

2020 CE Temporary Waiver

Nacha's APRP Oversight Panel Blue has approved a temporary waiver of the maximum number of Continuing Education (CE) credits that can be earned via self-study. You can read the memo here. Contact WesPay Member Services, of (415) 433-1230, with any questions.
