Imagine ACH made easier! In this summer seminar with the Payments Professor it will be!

  • How do you spell ACH?
  • What’s an SEC and what does it mean to me? 
  • Can anyone help make it easier?

If you are new to electronic payments and working with ACH or have already been working with ACH for a while and are now looking for a better understanding of how ACH works, then this bootcamp series is just for you.

Join the Payments Professor in this summer seminar to learn what an ACH is, who the participants in the network are, how the network started, with a brief introduction to the rules and regulations before ending with an understanding of file formatting.

Next, it is on to understanding mores about processing, the many ways that transactions can be created and why they are created a certain way. In this session it’s all about knowing what an SEC code is then when and how it is used.

This summer payments seminar on ACH wouldn’t be complete without a look into the rules, the regulations and even the return process of ACH. What Rules and regulations govern transactions and when? What is a return, and can I return a return?  We will answer this and more in the final class.

The Payments Professor takes all of this and more in this summer seminar to make ACH easier for you! You will graduate with not just what but the how and why, plus you’ll learn it all in a fun, engaging, and entertaining style. Who ever said learning electronic payments can’t be fun?
