Anti-Money Laundering Legislation (UK/EU)

If you operate in the UK, the EU, or both, it’s important to understand the anti-money laundering legislation of both jurisdictions.

Financial sanctions impose restrictions on financial markets and services to combat money laundering, terrorist financing, and financial crime. The penalties for breaches can be severe. Are you doing all you can to comply? Find out more in the Take 5 course.

Preventing Money Laundering Challenge

The course is presented in the form of a challenge to confiscate laundered money from a career criminal and hand it over as evidence to the police. Learn the tactics used by criminals to launder money and recognise the signs of money laundering activities.

By raising awareness, learners will be empowered to report suspicions and perform thorough due diligence. They will understand the significance of criminal property and the penalties.

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Training FAQs

Money laundering is the generic term used to describe the criminal process of ‘cleaning’ so-called ‘dirty’ money (i.e. money that was obtained by breaking the law) so that it appears to be legitimate income. It has close links with other financial crimes, such as terrorist financing and fraud, so it’s important that effective anti-money laundering training is provided in order to reduce the risk of a financial crime taking place.

Whilst it’s true that most organisations agree on the seriousness of money laundering activity (after all, it can result in large fines and/or prosecution for both the organisation and the individual at fault), it’s too often the case that in-house anti-money laundering training isn’t provided to employees, or that it’s offered in a way that seems unrelated – dare we say boring – to those who could be most at risk. You see, successful businesses with a steady flow of cash in and out are often targeted as a means by which to launder money, and if your employees don’t understand how to spot and report suspicious activity, you could be heading for trouble.

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Training

Our Anti-Money Laundering course forms a great base from which learners are taught the basics of spotting, reporting, and stopping money laundering. The course is designed to teach the fundamentals of what money laundering is, what it might be used for, and what could be classed as a suspicious activity to look out for.

We also offer a global Anti-Money Laundering course for training employees within global organisations to identify and report the signs of money laundering activity.

Expanding from this base, and depending upon what your requirements are, we also offer an Anti-Money Laundering course specially designed for Money Service Businesses (MSBs), and additional short courses on combating Terrorist Financing and dealing with Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs).

Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Short courses and microlearning

For organisations looking to offer refresher and additional training to staff, we have designed two microlearning courses on this subject, perfect for testing learners’ knowledge and keeping awareness levels high! Money Laundering Challenge and Know Your Customer reinforce the key principles of anti-money laundering compliance within organisations.

All our anti-money laundering training courses are available off-the-shelf for ease of use; we can also work with your subject experts to tailor the approach and information to suit your organisation’s requirements. Using the Adapt Authoring Tool you can even modify our courses yourself.
