“If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.”
Derek Bok, US educator
A qualification from Australian Payroll Institute will:
- Empower you with the confidence to excel in your current or future role in payroll;
- Give you the assurance that you're doing your job correctly;
- Allow for career development and growth;
- Prove your payroll experience with a recognisable qualification.
Until 2013, there was no competency based payroll qualification allowing payroll professionals to prove their skills to employers. All that changed with the introduction of the Certificate IV in Payroll Administration (current course code 11101NAT) and Diploma of Payroll Management (current course code 11102NAT).
Finally, career planning is possible for all those working in payroll.
Most people who don't work in payroll have no idea of the complexities that are involved, and the depth and breadth of knowledge that is required, to have a successful payroll career.
Employers are starting to specifically request these payroll qualifications as part of their recruitment process. This is a trend likely to continue into the future. Doing an Australian Payroll Institute qualification will open up new opportunities for you in your future or current career in payroll.
“Doing the course reinforces what you're doing in your everyday work and you can make sure that you're doing it correctly.”
“Another encouraging market observation is the increased emphasis by employers on Payroll Qualifications and the use of Payroll Knowledge Assessments in the appointment process. This will only continue to have a positive effect on salaries and assist Payroll Professionals to get the increased recognition and reward for the specialised technical expertise they provide to organisations.”
