The Payroll Knowledge Evaluator

Test Your Payroll Knowledge 

The Payroll Knowledge Evaluator (PKE) is an online tool designed to gauge an individual’s understanding of the Payroll Compliance Practitioner (PCP) body of knowledge.

Payroll is complex, requiring knowledge of over 200 regulatory requirements. The PKE is the perfect tool to evaluate this knowledge. Choose 1 of 3 different evaluators to suit your needs – the Full body of Knowledge (covers federal and all provincial/territorial legislation), Federal and non-Quebec (covers federal and all provincial/territorial legislation excluding Quebec), and Federal and Quebec (covers federal and Quebec provincial legislation).

The PKE is an easy-to-use online evaluation tool for:

  • Individuals with previous payroll experience looking to test their level of knowledge before enrolling in the PCP certification program
  • Individuals seeking to challenge the courses
  • Recruiters wanting to test a candidate’s knowledge
  • Organizations working to identify the best candidates or benchmark current departmental knowledge


Compliance knowledge is vital to payroll. Employers and recruiters prefer Payroll Compliance Practitioners (PCPs) and Certified Payroll Managers (CPMs) and pay a higher salary to certified professionals.
