Credit Card Training

As a merchant, do I have to take PCI training?


PCI DSS states that in order to accept credit card payments you must be PCI compliant.  One of the mandated requirements of PCI state that PCI and security awareness training must be conducted upon hire and at least annually.  Any official, administrator, or affiliate with responsibilities for managing University cardholder transactions and employees or personnel entrusted with handling or processing cardholder payments must complete training upon hire and annual training thereafter.  IT Directors and designated staff must also complete the PCI and security training and also comply with University Computing Security Standards.
