"The learning of the rules within real-life context. Much easier to remember and apply."
Compliance officer, Egyptian commercial bank

Cybercrime, fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing are all on the rise despite more aggressive industry and government regulation and technology to prevent or thwart financial crime.

This intensive, highly interactive course is designed to enable delegates to gain a holistic and in-depth knowledge on Anti-Money Laundering practices in the combating of financial crime and to prepare candidates for sitting financial crime qualifications (e.g. ACAMS and CISI examinations.)

Topics cover every aspect of the both exam syllabii in an interactive style, followed by mock-exam Q&A on the final day with the trainer to solidify the key learning objectives.

"'A very useful course and excellent trainer! The most impactful topics were internal and external fraud for [those of us] in compliance.'"
Compliance manager, Bank of New York Mellon, Taiwan
Who Should Attend

Designed primarily for Compliance Officers and Money Laundering Reporting Officers, those involved in regulation, law enforcement, trade and commerce and individuals from bi-lateral development institutions and civil society organisations.

Recent delegates also included those from HR, IT, legal and management consultants.
