Master your current role — or prepare to advance

IOFM’s 4 most popular Certification program (AP, P2P, AR and O2C) are each offered at either the Specialist or Manager level.

  • Specialist-level Certification programs are designed for those who are new to the world of financial operations with less than a few years’ experience and are looking to demonstrate mastery of all of the fundamentals.
