Introduction to the Certified Payroll Technician course
The Certificate in Payroll Techniques (CPT) is the leading payroll qualification in Ireland. The course provides students with a comprehensive and practical knowledge of the operation of the PAYE, PRSI, USC and PRD systems and a thorough knowledge of Employment Law which has a direct bearing on the operation of the payroll function. An extremely valuable qualification which is much sought after by employers.
PAYE, PRSI and USC are the largest tax liabilities which most companies incur and the largest source of tax recovered on Revenue audits. The best payroll software cannot compensate for the payroll operator’s lack of expertise in the operation of PAYE, PRSI and USC.
Classroom courses run 1 night per week, 3 hours per night, for 9 weeks, for both Stage 1 and Stage 2. An optional one day revision course is held 2 weeks before the date of the relevant examination.
An optional Computerised Module is available for all students to complete once they have completed Stage 1 of their course.
Once you have completed this course you will become an invaluable member of any employers financial team, enhance your career development prospects, enhance your payroll skills, technical expertise, and confidence, and develop professional skills and abilities through the application of advanced training.
