EMV Training By TONEX

EMV Training Course Description

EMV training course provides detail information about EMV specifications and associated security mechanisms. EMV training covers both practical and theoretical aspects of the EMV.

EMV training course also provides sufficient knowledge about EMV and contactless form factors, acceptance instruments, transaction processing, card and terminal architectures, and best practices.

EMV training course teaches you the fundamental of EMV transactions at a technical level. EMV hands-on training also discusses mobile payment technologies. We will cover EMV standards as well as implementation policies. The EMV standards are the basis of contactless NFC and mobile payments. Therefore, we will teach you the standards of contactless NFC and mobile payment elements.

What is EMV

EMV is short for Europay, MasterCard, and Visa (the three companies that originally created the standard). However, currently EMV is managed by EMVCo, a consortium with control split equally among Visa, Mastercard, JCB, American Express, China UnionPay, and Discover.
