Payment Card Newsflash #023
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) requires merchants to educate personnel upon hire and at least annually.
The current annual training consists of two online training classes accessible in myUFL under ‘My Self Service’ (Training and Development).
All workforce members defined as employees, students or volunteers, who work with (process, store, transmit) credit or debit cards are required to successfully complete one of the two PCI trainings initially before beginning work with payment cards and annually thereafter:
- Training class TRM100
required if the workforce member manages an area that works with or processes credit or debit cards. Manager is defined as someone who provides feedback, approves vacation and time worked, and completes performance reviews of other UF employees.
- Training class TRM 150
required for all non-supervisory, front line employees that work with or process credit or debit cards. This includes operating swiping machine(s), or other POS systems, or staff whose unit has outsourced payment card processing to third party vendors.
Please be aware that this training needs to be completed before signing and submitting the annual PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) and Ethics Certifications (Information to follow shortly).
