The Smart Card Alliance touted its new smart card payment certification program as the first of its kind. The Smart Card Alliance Certified Smart Card Industry Professional/Payments (CSCIP/P) credentialed course and exam will be offered in May at the NFC Solutions Summit 2012 in San Francisco.
Randy Vanderhoof, Smart Card Alliance Executive Director, said the CSCIP/P credential will "fill a noticeable gap in education and information" around smart card technologies, such as Europay/MasterCard/Visa (EMV) and near field communication (NFC).
The CSCIP/P adds to the alliance's Certified Smart Card Industry Professional certification with information concerning EMV migration, mobile and NFC contactless payments, secure remote transactions and smart card use in transit payment systems.
The course will cover smart card fundamentals, security, application and data management, mobile and NFC, payments and financial transactions, and technology and implementation. The program is part of the Smart Card Alliance's Leadership, Education and Advancement Program. For more information go to www.smartcardalliance.org/pages/activities-leap .
