The PCI SSC Payment Card Industry Professional (PCIP)™ Program provides a foundational credential for industry practitioners who demonstrate their professional knowledge and understanding of PCI SSC standards (“PCI Standards”) and supporting materials. Through the process of becoming a PCIP, the candidate will gain knowledge of the PCI Standards and how they relate to one another. Becoming a PCIP demonstrates a level of understanding that can provide a strong foundation for a career in the payments security industry. This qualification stays with the candidate regardless of their employer.
“My PCIP status reassures my clients that not only do I have the requisite knowledge but my skills have been recognized by PCI SSC. The recertification requirements ensure that I keep my knowledge up to date rather than just pass once and cruise.”
