Seminars on Payments

Seminars and trainings tailored to your individual needs

In the era of PSD2, blockchain, instant payments and SWIFT gpi, payments are regaining their central position in banks and savings banks. Increasing complexity, new innovative, customer-oriented solutions from FinTechs, and more intense market competition all intensify the need for specialist personnel. Target-oriented personnel development and qualification are important success factors.

Our payments seminars and individual trainings are aimed at employees of companies in the financial services industry from the payments, organisation, revision and IT areas, at customer consultants in the private and corporate customer sectors, and at specialist and management staff. They obtain deep knowledge of payments and can expand their specialist, IT, consulting and sales expertise. Find out about existing procedures and current trends, and organise your knowledge within a holistic context.

We offer seminars and trainings tailored to your individual needs and preferred focus areas, or distinct compact modules.

When you have participated in at least three of our seminars, we give you the opportunity to take an examination and become a certified payments expert.

The seminars are held in German at the PPI locations in Hamburg and Frankfurt am Main, but they can also be booked in-house.

These are our compact modules that can be booked separately or tailored to your individual needs:
