Essentials of Anti-Money Laundering (AML/CTF) Training

Header image

From December 2008, additional requirements came into effect for a range of designated service providers to comply with the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act. This course provides a jargon-free explanation of the legislation and the new obligations surrounding Anti-money laundering/counter terrorism financing (AML/CTF).

If you are involved in a financial services business, or if you provide services to financial services organisations, AML/CTF training is an essential part of your staff training obligations. This course looks at the reasons AML/CTF laws were introduced, why they are important, and what staff need to do to comply with their legal obligations.
