Training Overview

Earn Your BSA/AML Certification. Take your career to the next level in the new year.

Financial institutions must take BSA compliance seriously as regulators ramp up their efforts in 2022. Few regulations are as complex and have as many nuances as the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and related anti-money laundering laws and regulations, making mastery of this area particularly valuable for financial institution professionals.

Earning a certification showing your BSA/AML knowledge will enable you to avoid being passed over for a promotion, increase your value for a new opportunity, and advance your career. This is the year for upskilling!

BSA failures have resulted in some of the largest fines in U.S. financial services history—and not just for large financial institutions. There is also the potential for significant civil and criminal penalties associated with BSA violations. Insight into the requirements will allow you to reduce risk and protect your financial institution.

The BSA/AML Officer Certification Training Program will enable you to:

  • Hear practical solutions and best practices from an industry expert
  • Get the training you need to manage your institution's BSA/AML program and minimize risks
  • Interact with the presenter in live question and answer session
  • Have access to recorded versions of all of the live webinar sessions (You can use these as a substitute for attending any of the live sessions or as a reference that you can refer to when the need arises in the future.)
  • Avoid the expense and inconvenience of travel to attend
  • Demonstrate to regulators that your institution is serious about its BSA compliance responsibilities
