Note: This training may not be adequate for PCI coordinators, signatory executives PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ), or I.T. professionals.

NEW for Fall 2013!
PCI Coordinator Training: The PCI Coordinator role was created so that departments that accept payment cards have someone that understands the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI) and serves as the primary contact and expert on payment card processes for their area. Because PCI can be a complex process, we require each PCI Coordinator receive advanced training in topics including Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, responsibilities of the PCI Coordinator role, tools, and best practices to manage the process.
