BIBF to launch advanced AML certification
Manama, July 14, 2014
Bahrain Institute of Banking and Finance, in collaboration with the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (Acams), is set to launch the Advanced AML-Audit Certification for all qualified Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (CAMS) in the region.
The three-day course will take place from September 9 to 11 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Bahrain.
It will helps fill the growing need for advanced professional certifications within the field of anti-money laundering (AML), and is in line with the Central Bank of Bahrain’s (CBB) mandate to the BIBF to lead the education drive on AML within the financial services community.
The course will aid participants in evaluating the effectiveness and adequacy of AML compliance programs, address and mitigate AML risk, and assess the adequacy of transactions testing.
It will also teach candidates to identify, analyse and recommend enhancements to policies, procedures and processes in accordance with the regulations.
Solveig Nicklos, director, said: “BIBF has gone beyond the awareness boundary by creating greater opportunities in career development and protecting the financial industry and the economy at large by advancing anti-money laundering professionals in the Mena region.” - TradeArabia News Service
