Certified Payroll Professional (CPP)

Congratulations to Miranda Thompson of Payroll Vault – Fort Collins for earning the distinguished credential of Certified Payroll Professional (CPP) awarded by the American Payroll Association (APA).  To achieve this certification, Miranda was required to practice as a payroll professional for at least three years, log approximately 50 hours studying for the exam, and successfully complete the grueling CPP exam, proving payroll knowledge and processing capability.

“I am thrilled to have earned my CPP designation, and grateful to the study group for adding the final polish to my knowledge,” says Miranda. “However, the biggest thanks goes to all my clients at Payroll Vault – Fort Collins, who continually bring me new and interesting problems to solve! They remind me that we are never done learning.”

Miranda has been a Payroll Specialist at Payroll Vault – Fort Collins, serving Fort Collins and Loveland small businesses since June of 2015. Prior to her employment there, she worked at Sunrise Community Health in Evans, CO, processing payroll and assisting the accounting department.  Her payroll knowledge is extensive and she enjoys keeping her payroll clients compliant with ever-changing labor laws. To maintain her certification, Miranda will need to log 120 hours of CPE within a 5-year period.
