The Fundamental Payroll Certification (FPC) is a certification credential for payroll beginners and service and support professionals in positions requiring payroll knowledge. It is open to all those who wish to demonstrate a baseline of payroll competency.

FPC professionals have the following RCH requirements as per the American Payroll Association (APA):

  • 60 RCHs during the 3-year recertification period.
  • There is no minimum Ethics requirement for FPC designation holders.
  • The entire requirement of 60 RCHs can be completed through self-study courses.
  • The RCH Reporting Cycle for FPC professionals is January 1 of the year following recertification and ends on December 31 of the third year following recertification.
