Portland, ME (PRWEB) October 21, 2016
Extending its position as the leading provider of training, education and certification programs for financial operations professionals worldwide, The Institute of Finance and Management (IOFM) announced today that it is waiving all upfront fees for practitioners with active Certified Accounts Payable Professional (CAPP) or Certified Accounts Payable Associate (CAPA) certifications to transfer to IOFM’s equivalent certification program.
“Over the past 6 months, in particular, current CAPP/CAPA certified professionals have been reaching out to IOFM to express their deep concern over the future of their current certification designation,” said Brian Cuthbert, Executive Director of IOFM. “We’ve been asked time and again to step in and provide another option for those professionals who have invested so much of their time and money into their certification designation. IOFM has a responsibility to the financial operations community, which we take seriously, and now CAPP and CAPA certified practitioners can benefit from IOFM’s certification programs and become part of most well-recognized certification programs for financial operations professionals in North America.”
Transferring to IOFM’s certification program ensures practitioners with active CAPP and CAPA certifications have access to a wide range of training, education and certification programs, events and resources so they’re able to maintain their certification and advance their career. IOFM is waiving the recertification fee for practitioners with an active CAPP certification to become APM certified, and for practitioners with an active CAPA certification to become APS certified. After their APM or APS certification becomes effective, practitioners will follow IOFM certification guidelines and have 12 months to maintain 15 continuing education units (CEUs).
IOFM’s Accredited Payables Manager (APM) and Accredited Payables Specialist (APS) programs define the standard of excellence in accounts payable, procure-to-pay and financial shared services. More than 20,000 practitioners worldwide have become certified by IOFM, making it the largest and fastest-growing certification program of its kind. IOFM offers a wide range of resources to help practitioners prepare for its certification programs. Practitioners with an IOFM certification are more valuable to their employer and to potential employers, demonstrate their understanding of industry best practices and their commitment to the profession, and have a broader peer network.
