Employees of FCA-authorised firms are subject to a wide-ranging set of obligations in relation to Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter-Terrorist Financing (CTF) and firms have a legal duty to train their staff regarding these obligations. This course is intended to help firms meet this legal obligation by providing employees with an understanding of the legal framework, the specific criminal offences relating to AML and CTF and their personal responsibilities. It also considers the firm’s responsibility to implement adequate systems and controls following a risk-based approach, particularly in relation to Customer Due Diligence (CDD), or ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC).
In order to meet the requirements of the Money Laundering Regulations 2017, the course also includes an overview of the law relating to data protection.

This comprehensive course is designed for those with little or no existing knowledge of AML and CTF, but is also suitable for use as a ‘refresher’ for both existing employees and new joiners.
