Course Overview:

Under Regulation 24 of the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 (MLR) Senior Management must ensure that immediately on joining the firm employees at all levels of seniority receive training in AML. In addition, refresher training must also be provided at a frequency determined by the firm’s AML risk assessment.

This course is specifically designed to assist Senior Management in meeting these obligations. Any failure to meet these obligations is a breach of the MLR and of the FCA/PRA Rules in “Senior Management Arrangements, Systems and Control (SYSC).
