BROOKFIELD, Wis. — OnCourse Learning Financial Services is now offering 10 internationally ACAMS-accredited courses to financial services institutions and other organizations with regulatory compliance requirements.

These courses, accredited by the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists, provide training for employees on how to spot international money laundering tactics and prevent other illegal financial activities.

ACAMS is the largest international membership organization dedicated to enhancing the knowledge, skills and expertise of AML/CTF and financial crime detection and prevention professionals.

“Having our courses accredited by ACAMS demonstrates the level of importance we place on ensuring our courses offer the best regulatory compliance content and bring the most value to our clients,” said Jeffrey Kelly, vice president of governance, risk and compliance at OnCourse Learning. “ACAMS is the industry standard for anti-money laundering content, and we are proud to be a part of the anti-money laundering solution.”

The courses, which are 60 to 90 minutes in duration, were developed to ensure employees understand how anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism requirements apply to their specific industry and what steps can be taken to protect them from illegal activity.

“In order to maintain the CAMS certification, the credential recognized by the private and public sector worldwide, ACAMS requires continuing education and training in financial crime prevention and AML,” said John Byrne, Esq., CAMS, ACAMS executive vice president. “We are proud to ensure that only quality programs can be utilized by CAMS professionals for this purpose.”
