Course Description

Every organization has anti-money-laundering and countering the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) obligations to find out who is paying whom and why and, if necessary, to alert the authorities. Your organization is the first line of defense against this criminal behavior; you are also contributing to a stable international financial system.

Our Certificate Program in Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) Foundations is geared towards professionals new to anti-money laundering (AML) compliance, and those whose responsibilities require a firm understanding of what goes into detecting, preventing, and reporting money laundering and financial crime.

Preventing money laundering crimes is vital for many regulators and organizations worldwide. You will learn how to setup risk assessments, compliance programs, policies and procedures, and transaction monitoring and assessment.

This Certificate Program is a Foundational training that offers seven modules covering money laundering and anti-money laundering, terrorist financing and counter-terrorist financing, and key concepts such as Know Your Customer (KYC), Customer Due Diligence, and Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs). It also includes practical examples to aid you in applying them in actual scenarios. Ultimately, this certificate program will strengthen your existing knowledge and allow you to acquire unique insights as you complete this course.

You will finish this Certificate Program with a sound overview of the AML essentials, plus an anti-money laundering certificate to evidence your knowledge.
