Trajectory - Qualified Payments Expert

The payments landscape is constantly evolving. Whether it is through changing market expectations, new regulations, shifting economic realities, or emerging technologies, there is never a dull moment in this industry. As payment methods converge and use cases start to overlap, it becomes increasingly important to have a wide, up to date, and wholistic view of all payment methods. Whether you’re new to the fascinating world of payments, looking to refine your understanding of payment methods you don’t often work with, or a subject matter expert looking to understand the latest evolutions and industry insights, Febelfin Academy has you covered.

Through our collaboration with RedCompass Labs, a consulting and technology firm dedicated to the payments industry, as well as industry experts from a diverse range of organisations, we are pleased to present you a training curriculum that will enable you to obtain, upon completion of all modules and the accompanying exam, a “Qualified Payments Expert” certification.

The goal of this training is for the audience to get a good image on the world of payments, including the context & concept, the relevant framework, and future developments.

This four-day training curriculum will consist of four modules:

We’ll leave no stone unturned, from the basics of correspondent banking to the latest developments in the instant payments regulation. Although this training is aimed at industry professionals (product managers, business analysts, payments IT professionals, sales/account managers, or consultants), it is open to everyone, with no background knowledge required.
