BAFT Launches CertPAY, an International Payments Certification


​WASHINGTON — BAFT, the leading global financial services association for international transaction banking, is forming a partnership with the London Institute for Banking and Finance to introduce CertPAY, an internationally recognized payment certification. The partnership was announced today at the association’s Global Payments Symposium in New York.   
Hosted online, the CertPAY program provides users with a comprehensive understanding of payments, from terminology to the mechanics of moving money across the globe. This new industry-focused program enables participants to develop specialist knowledge and skills relating to products, purpose, structure and inherent risks associated with payments. For individuals working in or aspiring to work in the payments industry, completing CertPAY will demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the sector, and provide a formal recognition of professionalism in payments.
“BAFT is proud to partner with the London Institute of Banking and Finance in offering CertPAY,” said Tod Burwell, president and CEO of BAFT. “We are committed to supporting the education and training of the community, and developing the next generation of transaction bankers. CertPAY is an excellent qualification for anyone operating in payments.”
