Canadian Payroll Association (CPA) Certification Programs
The Canadian Payroll Association (CPA) offers the only payroll certifications in Canada: the Payroll Compliance Practitioner (PCP) and the Certified Payroll Manager (CPM). These programs prepare payroll practitioners to manage the compliance requirements of an organization's annual payroll cycle, deliver clear and reliable payroll information, and contribute a payroll perspective to organizational policy and strategy discussions.
Payroll is a growing field and those holding Payroll designations earn higher salaries than those who don't. Check out our full and part time course options today.
For all Payroll programs and courses, students are required to register with the Canadian Payroll Association and pay their associated fees. Students in our full time offering qualify for a student rate with the Association.

Launching New Full Time Payroll Program
NAIT now offers a full time Professional Payroll Program in addition to our part time courses. The Program runs from late August until the end of February every year. Students take the required courses for the Payroll Compliance Practitioner (PCP) designation. Additional courses that typically round out the skills required of payroll professionals such as Sage, Business Communications, Word and Excel are included. We also provide training in areas of time management, change management, networking and computers so that our students are fully prepared to enter the workforce. Students participate in networking sessions with industry professionals so that they can get a head start on their job search.
The courses are full days Tuesday's to Fridays. Registration opens in February.
