Scottsdale, AZ September 24th, 2013 - Symmetry Software, specialists in payroll withholding tax solutions for large corporations and payroll providers, is announcing that Maria Pickens, Symmetry tax research analyst, is the latest Symmetry employee to earn the Fundamental Payroll Certification (FPC.)  Maria underwent extensive training through the American Payroll Association (APA) to earn the certification that recognizes her knowledge, skills, and abilities in the payroll industry. 

The Fundamental Payroll Certification is awarded to individuals based on payroll knowledge including payroll fundamentals, operations, paycheck concepts, tax reporting and accounting, and professional payroll skills and responsibilities.  FPC recognition is given by the American Payroll Association Certification Board’s FPC Committee to those who successfully complete the examination and subscribe to the APA Code of Ethics.
The goals of the APA’s Fundamental Payroll Certification program are:
• to promote the standard for payroll practitioners, which is accepted by the business community 
and the public at large;
• to encourage professional growth and individual study by the payroll practitioner;
• to provide the standard of requisite knowledge for the payroll practitioner;
• to measure by means of the certification examination the attainment and application of that 
standard; and
• to recognize formally those colleagues who continue to meet the requirements of the APA
