[FORT THOMAS, Kentucky — September 1, 2016] OMEGA Processing Solutions is pleased to announce that seven-year OMEGA veteran, Caroline Ok, Merchant Underwriting and Risk, has earned the designation of ETA Certified Payments Professional (CPP), the professional certification program administered by the Electronics Transactions Association. By successfully meeting the ETA’s rigorous certification examination requirements, she has joined an exclusive community of electronic transactions professionals who have earned this distinguished certification.
The ETA CPP program sets the standard for professional performance in the payments industry and is a symbol of excellence. It signifies that an individual has demonstrated the knowledge and skills required to perform competently in today’s complex electronic payments environment.
The ETA CPP certification program was launched in 2011 as a means to recognize the unique skills and knowledge required of electronic transactions professionals. The program recognizes that today’s merchant service providers must have a broad knowledge of the industry and must demonstrate mastery not only of sales, but also pricing and interchange, business process, operations and workflow, products and solutions, as well as risk, regulatory, compliance and security matters. In addition to meeting the program’s education and experience requirements, those awarded the ETA CPP designation must complete a minimum of 36 hours of industry-related professional education every three years.
With less than 2 percent of professionals in the payments industry receiving this designation, the commitment shown by OMEGA and its employees to the ETA CPP certification signifies the company’s dedication to industry excellence and increased customer satisfaction. OMEGA Processing Solutions prides itself in having another one its associates secure this honor.
