National Check Payments Certification Program
Through the National Check Payments Certification program, National Check Professionals (NCPs) demonstrate a working knowledge of every significant aspect of the check payment system, including products and operations, relevant rules and laws that govern check image exchange including industry standards and fraud and risk mitigation considerations.
To take the exam you must register for and purchase the exam through ECCHO. For more information about ECCHO and the cost of the NCP exam, visit their website.
ePayResources offers two preparations series. Series 1 provides a head start to exam prep! The series allows candidates five months to review and absorb critical check image exchange concepts. With one week between each webinar, NCP candidates have expanded time to consider and contemplate the information.
To prepare for the exam, ePayResources teamed with ECCHO to provide a series of webinars and study materials concentrating on core, blue-print exam categories: Rules, Laws, & Regulations; Fraud & Risk Mitigation; Operations; and Products. To effectively cover the material, the webinar series is divided into 11 content-filled sessions and two review sessions. The schedule for the webinar sessions may be found below. All sessions are held on Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. Central Time / 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time except where noted. Each session is one and a half hours long.
ePayResources is committed to assisting the NCP candidate in exam preparation. We provide an NCP Prep community through our Connections website. The community exclusive to 2018 exam prep individuals provides one repository for webinar session decks; supplemental materials; additional study tools; and recordings of each session when available (typically one business day after the live webinar).
The Connections community also provides a forum for asynchronous communication between NCP candidates and ePayResources’ NCPs. We answer questions, drive discussion, and clarify content in a near-real-time, online environment.
