Payroll 101: Foundations of Payroll Certificate Program
Payroll 101: Foundations of Payroll Certificate Program

Payroll 101 is an important first step in payroll education. This interactive, computer-based classroom training covers the basic procedures, processes, and terminology defining the daily workload of the beginning payroll practitioner. This program provides a thorough overview of the laws and regulations that affect payroll. Practical experience is also gained through "hands-on" computer-based exercises that allow each participant to work through actual payroll forms and payroll calculations.
As a participant, you will receive the Payroll Practice Fundamentals.

Classes taught at APA's Payroll Learning Center in San Antonio and at MEET Las Vegas.

Registration for this course includes free pre- and post-class assessments using the Knowledge Assessment Calculator. Look for details in your course confirmation.
