Technical education for the payment industry
WELCOME TO PAYTECH ACADEMY
At PayTech Academy, we believe that everyone in the payment technology industry should be allowed to reach an expert level in the areas that they are interested in. The barrier to entry is kept artificially high by the large players, and it hinders growth for everyone. Our goal is to be your preferred source for technical education, so that together we can make you reach your unfulfilled potential. Browse our site to learn more, and get in touch with any questions.
Bilal Norath, EMV Subject Matter Expert at Standard Bank Group
“I was seriously impressed with the both the course content and delivery model. It perfectly addresses the challenge we have in getting our people upskilled and proficient in EMV as rapidly as possible. Definitely the Gold Standard of EMV training. Really well done PayTech Academy!”
Magan Pillay, Team lead, EMV Acquirer Certifications, Standard Bank South Africa
“The training course is absolutely brilliant.
The way it is structured allows the trainee to complete the course at his own pace, which means that you can take the necessary time to adjust to EMV concepts that are fairly complex. My team member, Bala, was put on the course, having started working in my team recently with no previous EMV experience. My team performs technically complex EMV Certifications with the various Associations. Experience has shown that the average time it takes for a person to be self-sufficient at doing EMV Certifications is approximately 8 to 12 months. Bala was able to run his own EMV Certification projects with minimum supervision within 3 months and the expectation is that he will be fully independent within the next 6-8 weeks. This turnaround time towards EMV competence is really remarkable and definitely as a result of the training program offered by PayTech Academy. I will readily recommend it, and will insist that all new people joining my team going forward undertake the training as a mandatory requirement. Keep up the good work.”
Freddy Rademeyer, Software Development Manager, Altech Card Solutions (ACS)
"As a new developer in EMV, Walter was able to fast track his knowledge of the EMV space in a very short span of time. The course is well put together and empowered him to gain sufficient knowledge to be able to work on EMV platform with confidence.
I would recommend this to anybody who wants to gain insight and knowledge of EMV transactions."

LET'S TALK ABOUT YOU
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
Come Learn With Us
Payment technology companies with training programs see education as a side activity, as a foot in the door to upsell expensive software or services. The results are mixed at best: in-person training is expensive, it requires a lot of organization, the programs are usually very high-level and do not even scratch the surface of what you want to learn, and that’s if you can even access those training courses. If you are on your own, if your company is too small, or if you do not offer a good perspective of upselling, you might just be denied access.
PayTech Academy was created to give everyone a chance to one day become an expert in the payment technology industry. We understand that access to experts is difficult, even when you work in the same company, because those skills are rare and make those people extremely busy. Our aim is to provide the world with hands-on courses that take our students from where they are to a level of deep technical understanding in very specific areas. Our approach is to build knowledge block by block, while keeping students engaged and allowing them to form the mental links required to become an expert. For this, we augment our education with well-crafted practical exercises and quizzes.
