Attention: Stay home. Get certified!

With more employees working remotely, the commute to the office is nonexistent. Make this extra time count by encouraging your payroll team to get certified! You know the value of payroll certification, and you know that having payroll professionals who are certified will transform your staff into a stronger collective. Take advantage of this time and help your team advance their careers!

North American residents can now register and test using OnVUE, Pearson VUE's online proctoring exam system, from the comfort of their home or office. Certified Payroll Professional (CPP) examinations are being administered via online proctoring from September 5 through November 7, 2020, and will feature questions based on federal laws and regulations in effect as of January 1, 2020.

It's never been easier to get your team certified. What are you waiting for?

Stay connected!
