Graduate from Payroll Management in Just Two Semesters “This is a two­semester program and it is 50 per cent courses supplied by the Canadian Payroll Association but   taught here at the Progress Campus,” say Professor Dryden, who teaches in the Payroll Management program  at Centennial College. “And 50 per cent courses developed by Centennial College. One of the key advantage of  this program is that the graduate will have exposure not only to the technical aspect of the processes of payroll   but they will also have a broad understanding of the management processes around payroll, compensation and  be able to step confidently into an orientation with other professions that work with payroll, such as accounting.” While Professor Dryden does a fantastic job of giving an overview of the Payroll Management program, let’s take  a more in­depth look into its specific aspects. First and foremost, to gain entry into the undertaking, students   must   present   an   official   transcript   that   demonstrates   proof   of   successful   completion   of   a   post­secondary  advanced diploma or degree program. In addition, they may be required to participate in an interview process,   during which a transcript and resume review may be required. English proficiency will also be considered. Please   note that if students are able to present a combination of partial post secondary education and relevant work   experience, they may be considered. That is open to all disciplines. As the undertaking is designed for those with previous experience in (assumingly) the financial field, students will   develop   and   enhance   crucial   skills   they   already   possess   in   a   number   of   key   areas   and   gain   an   extensive  knowledge   base.   To   achieve   this,   the   Payroll   Management   program   includes   courses   such   as   Strategic  Compensation   (helps   students   to   develop   a   solid   understanding   of   the   strategies,   issues,   process,   and  techniques involved in developing and administering a compensation system), Human Resources Management  in Canada (presents a survey of the major functional areas of human resources management, highlights key   issues, and introduces students to a variety of best practices currently in use in high performance organizations),  Pensions and Benefits (introduces students to the varied and complex area of pensions and benefits); and more. This  Payroll   Management  program   also   places   emphasis   on   emerging   trends   and   issues   in   payroll  management,   such   as   the   use   of   promising   technologies   and   changing   legislative   requirements.   Therefore,  payroll system training is taught using an SAP application.  Teaching tools used by professionals include: case studies, simulations and project­based learning, with a focus  on developing project management, teamwork, report writing and presentation skills. Qualified students are eligible to earn the professional designations of Payroll Compliance Practitioner and the  Certified Payroll Manager that are granted by the Association (please note that registration in this will incur costs   in addition to tuition).  Upon graduation, Payroll Management professionals are employed in every sector of the Canadian economy in   positions  such   as:   Payroll  Clerks/   Officers,   Payroll  and  Benefits  Clerks/   Administrators/   Payroll  Accountants,  Human   Resource   and   Payroll   Generalists,   General   Accounting   Coordinator,   and   Small   Business  Bookkeepers/Accountants.
