Certificate Information

Bow Valley College's Payroll Professional Certificate is offered in affiliation with the National Payroll Institute. The National Payroll Institute’s Payroll Compliance Practitioner (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, Financial Accounting - Introduction, and one year of weighted payroll work experience.
