PASA Academy Overview

One of the key themes published in the National Payment System Framework and Strategy – Vision 2025: Action Plan is:

“Increasing capacity in human resources will result in an accessible base of payment skills and expertise to help implement this vision.”

 PASA has taken active steps to address the area of capacity building and has embraced its responsibility as a key role player in building a strong foundation of payment system knowledge. Although payments play a significant role in the financial sector, payment practitioners have limited formal interventions to learn their trade. For many years this has plagued the payments industry in that knowledge is gained by chance through “on the job” training and learning through informal interactions with peers. Payments form the bedrock of our country’s economy and the lack of interventions, together with continuous exiting of payments talent from the industry has become a serious concern for business leaders and regulators alike.

Through the PASA Academy payments professionals have the opportunity to grow their expertise and understanding of the payments landscape through a series of formal programmes – spanning the basics of payments, to electronic payments and high value payments.

We welcome you to the PASA Academy and look forward to seeing many more payment professionals graduate with certifications that ensure capacity is built and sustained across the payments landscape.
