Financial institutions and other regulated companies require training on anti-money laundering. Financial institutions and other regulated companies are required by law to prevent, detect, and report money laundering activities. These controls are referred to as anti-money laundering (AML) and are mostly utilized in the financial and legal sectors. The financial services sector is prone to misuse by money launderers because of the nature of the services and goods it provides (specifically, managing, controlling, and possessing money and property that belongs to others).

The target audience for this training on anti-money laundering (AML) course is people who want to start a career in the field or who are presently in a junior AML capacity. Money laundering issues and counterterrorism efforts, such as rules governing financial institutions, are covered in the AML training course. The regulatory environment is covered, with a practical emphasis on the Money Laundering Reporting Officer's function. Participants will explore the AML risks associated with developing industry sectors such mobile financial services and e-payments as well as the significance of customer due diligence (CDD) and sanctions monitoring.
