Training Overview

Well-trained BSA/AML Officers are in high demand in 2023!

As regulators increasingly crack down on financial crimes, 2023 is expected to be a significant year for enforcement actions. Financial institutions need BSA/AML Officers who thoroughly understand the laws and regulations to ensure compliance.

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, advance your career, and build immunity from an economic downturn.

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. Insight into the requirements will allow you to reduce risk and protect your financial institution.

The five-session BSA/AML Officer Certification training program will enable you to:

  • Hear practical solutions and best practices from an industry expert
  • Manage your institution’s BSA/AML program while minimizing risks
  • Demonstrate to regulators that your institution is serious about its responsibilities
  • Advance your career
