Seminars and trainings

Tailored to your individual needs

In times of PSD2, Instant Payments, SWIFT GPI and SWIFT ISO20022 migration, payment traffic is regaining its central importance. Increasing complexity, customer-oriented solutions and increasing market competition increase the need for skilled personnel. We have put together a comprehensive training and seminar programme for you for goal-oriented personnel development and qualification.

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 help participants to obtain a deep knowledge of payments, existing procedures and current trends. They will not only expand their specialist, IT, consulting and sales expertise but also place their knowledge in the context of a larger picture.

You can choose between distinct compact modules that can be booked individually or combined according to your preferred focus areas. When you have participated in three of our compact modules, you have the opportunity to take an examination and become a certified payments expert.

The seminars and trainings are held in the compact modules with a minimum of three participants at the PPI locations in Hamburg and Frankfurt am Main. Per your request the seminars and trainings can also be booked in-house with a varying number of participants and individually agreed upon topics and areas of focus.

We would be happy to prepare a quote for you. Simply give us a call or write us.
