The Electronic Transactions Association (ETA) is pleased to announce that David Bergert, CTO of On-Line Strategies, and Ron Barker, Business Development Director of On-Line Strategies, have been granted the designation of Certified Payments Professional™ (CCP). By successfully meeting the rigorous certification examination requirements, they have joined an exclusive community of electronic transactions professionals who have earned this distinguished certification. In doing so, Mr. Bergert and Mr. Barker bring the highest level of expertise and distinction in electronic transactions to OLS.

"I've always been proud of our leadership team and feel their industry expertise surpasses what any other organization in the payments space can offer,” said Terry Richards, CEO of OLS. “The addition of CPP certification for two of our MVPs further attests to the value of what OLS can and does bring to our current and future customers."

Recognizing the unique skills and special knowledge required of electronic transactions professionals, ETA launched the certification program in 2011. In addition to meeting the program's education and experience requirements, those awarded the CPP™ designation must complete a minimum of 36 hours of industry-related continuing professional education every three years.
