BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — Dale Metoff, Assistant Vice President of Operations for Florida Bank of Commerce, recently became an Accredited ACH Professional (AAP), one of the most highly-regarded designations in the electronic payments industry.

There are only approximately 4,000 AAPs throughout the U.S., with just 377 becoming accredited in 2013.

“Not only does this designation place Dale among an elite group of banking professionals, but she is able to bring her expertise to our bank’s customers on a daily basis, and that’s something we are very proud of.”
In her role at Florida Bank of Commerce, Metoff manages the daily functions of the bank’s Deposit Operations Department, which includes ACH processing, wire transfers, EFT services, Internet banking and accounts payable.

In order to receive the ACH Accreditation, Metoff had to pass a three-hour, comprehensive AAP Exam to demonstrate knowledge of subject matter including the NACHA Operating Rules, the ACH Network and other payments systems, technical and operational ACH requirements, risk management, and payments-related regulations across channels.
