PAAS Technical Achievement Program (TAP)

About the program

The PAAS® Technical Achievement Program (TAP) is a convenient, cost-effective way to train and certify employees who perform physical or telephone audits or who review audit results. Most training programs require employers to cover hotel, travel, and meal expenses. But TAP is an online self-study course. If you work for an insurance company or premium audit service company that subscribes to PAAS, these courses and exams are FREE.
