Anti-Money Laundering 2022

Credit hours are based on self- assessment. 

Version 5:  Incorporates the new rules dealing with PEPs and HIOs. 

Anti – Money Laundering doesn’t have to be boring.

Anti-money laundering and terrorist financing training is fundamental to any firm’s compliance regime. It is vital that all staff within the firm have a clear and effective understanding of the regulations. The unfortunate part is that AML regulations can be complex and are boring!

This AML course is different…and here is why…

This course provides….

  • Recent real life examples that spark interest and provoke discussion with associates.
  • Includes links to relevant and interesting new articles; and to various regulatory agency sites for reference
  • Approaches AML with a humorous tone to maintain interest by making the content more accessible and fun. (Is that possible?)
  • Written in plain English
  • Organized so that each section within the material has a “What you need to know” heading that is specific to the different roles (i.e. executives, compliance, operations, sales, trading, client services).
  • Focused on maintaining the reader’s interest by providing them with practical tools they can use to identify AML activity and communicate AML regulations to their clients or staff.
  • Structured to ensure that all types of learners will benefit from the material.
After taking this course, staff will fully understand AML regulations and the reasons for their implementation. They will be able to clearly communicate the importance of AML regulations to clients and staff, as per thier roles. They will have a complete understanding of how Money Laundering affects the world economies and what they can do to prevent it.
