Overview & Benefits
CKYCA is the first ACAMS certification created for teams responsible for onboarding clients, conducting periodic reviews and updating customer profiles, as well as those who supervise them.
This brand new exam-based certification equips organizations with a means to ensure their front line and operations teams meet the core competencies involved with Know Your Customer (KYC) and Customer Due Diligence (CDD) activities. CKYCA can set organizations apart by certifying their workforce based on a new global benchmark developed by the association that created CKYCA, the gold standard in anti-money laundering compliance.

Some of the roles appropriate for CKYCA are:
- KYC Analyst

- Client/Customer Onboarding Analyst
- Client/Customer Onboarding Specialist
