Team Certification

Achieve best-in-class team performance with IOFM

IOFM Certification is recognized around the world as the gold standard for financial operations teams who seek to demonstrate best-in-class performance. Over 25,000 AP, P2P, AR and O2C professionals have completed an IOFM Certification program to the benefit of both their careers as well as the companies that employ them.


The benefits include:

Convenient training, minimal disruption

Certification from IOFM can be available entirely online if you choose – with no travel or out-of-office time required. Or, we can send our expert trainers direct to your offices! Candidates have up to a year to complete the program online at their own pace, for maximum flexibility and minimal disruption.

Maximize ROI, raise team profile

Certified team members work more efficiently, which saves your company money and ultimately can turn financial operations from a cost center to a profit center. Earn respect and raise the reputation of your team within your company. An IOFM-Certified team is also better equipped to leverage automation technology, so training should go in tandem with or in preparation for any automation investments. 

Expect ongoing excellence

To maintain Certification, candidates must earn and self-report 15 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) annually. IOFM offers many opportunities to earn CEUs year-round, and many professional training opportunities are eligible for credit. A continuing education requirement is a practical way to ensure your team stays up-to-date and best-in-class.


Training Options

Self-Study E-Learning

The online course includes 1-year of access to the e-textbook, training video, practice quiz(zes) and three attempts at the final exam. This is the most flexible training option as enrollment is always open, so training can start whenever you want. A great option for onboarding new hires! 

Live, Online Classes

IOFM Live, Online Certification Classes include enrollment in one of our world-class certification programs and registration for a six-hour supplemental live webinar/Q&A with one of our expert trainers. This is the most cost-effective way to receive training from a live instructor!
