NZPPA Payroll Learning Paths Matrix

NZPPA is the only technical payroll training organisation in New Zealand and has been since 2007. Our focus is on developing and providing the required knowledge and skills to payroll practitioners so they can run, process and manage payroll to ensure compliance and that payroll is run effectively for their business.

NZPPA has four different levels of payroll learning and professional development based on:

  • NZPPA Certification (see details of NZPPA Certification in the Training Menu)

  • NZPPA Payroll core professional development courses (6 levels based across the 4 Certification types)

  • Additional payroll specialised courses (run when demand is present)

  • NZPPA Certificates - eLearning (based on NZQA work schemes and assessment based on NZQA unit standards)

In the following NZPPA Payroll Learning Paths Matrix all of the above have been included so it can be seen how you can progress through the different levels as you develop in your payroll career.
