AML & CTF Compliance Training Course

Endorsed CPD AML & CTF Course

To prevent criminal activity, nearly all countries in the world have committed themselves to extremely tough laws against money laundering and terrorist financing.

Money laundering is defined as criminal proceeds finding their way into the formal economy via a web of transactions that conceal their true origins.

Terrorist financing can come from rogue regimes or terrorist organisations that feed their cells worldwide under trade payments, investments, remittances and money for education.

Our global AML & CTF Compliance Training Course helps employees understand their obligations to preventing these crimes. It covers 17 regulatory regimes.
