Your Professional Development
ACAMS offers a variety of associate, specialist, and advanced specialist level certifications, which only ACAMS members may earn and hold.
Associate certifications are for professionals early in their career, upskilling and empowering them with an understanding of core principles and risks. Our associate-level certifications cover know your customer, transaction monitoring, and FinTech compliance.
ACAMS specialist certifications are globally recognized qualifications for mid-to-senior-level professionals. Specialist-level certifications include the CAMS credential – the global benchmark for excellence in financial crime prevention – and the CGSS Certification, which equips sanctions professionals with the tools they need to understand and interpret changing sanctions regimes.
Advanced specialist-level certifications enable senior professionals to certify their experience. We currently offer advanced certifications in audit, financial crimes investigations, and risk management.
