Graduates of this program can apply to the Payroll Compliance Practitioner (PCP) designation from the National Payroll Institute* (formaly known as the Canadian Payroll Association). The National Payroll Institute’s PCP designation is the foundation for a successful career in payroll.  The PCP courses will help you gain an in-depth understanding of the legislative requirements to keep your organization compliant throughout the annual payroll cycle. When you achieve the designation, you join a growing community of supportive professionals and gain access to the resources you need to stay current and compliant.

 

The PCP designation requires three core payroll courses, an Introduction to Accounting course transfer credit and one year of weighted payroll work experience:

  1. Payroll Compliance Legislation
  2. Payroll Fundamentals 1 – Prerequisite: Payroll Compliance Legislation
  3. Payroll Fundamentals 2 – Prerequisites: Payroll Compliance Legislation and Payroll Fundamentals 1
  4. Introduction to Accounting - must be completed at a post-secondary institution
  5. PCP Work Experience Requirement Application (a minimum of one year weighted payroll work experience)

 

A minimum pass grade of 65% is required for each course (including Introduction to Accounting). A combination of payroll education and payroll work experience ensures PCP certification is highly valued by employers.The Introduction to Accounting transfer of credit is a requirement, not a prerequisite. Introduction to Accounting is no longer a prerequisite for Payroll Fundamentals 2.

 

*The National Payroll Institute is the only certifying body for payroll professionals in Canada.
