Social Impact Certificates

Free, online social impact training resources to help you fight the illegal wildlife trade, modern slavery, and human trafficking.

Together, We Can End Human and Wildlife Trafficking

Anti-financial crime professionals are in the unique position to protect not only the integrity of our financial system, but also the global ecosystem, as they investigate the transactional and trade networks used by criminal syndicates to generate billions of dollars in illicit proceeds every year.

 

ACAMS, in partnership with global specialist organizations, has launched a series of social impact certificates. These certificates courses teach compliance and anti-money laundering (AML) professionals how to identify transaction activity linked to the illegal wildlife trade, modern slavery, and human trafficking, and how they can take action to stop the flow of illicit funds through legitimate financial systems.

 

All ACAMS social impact certificates are offered free of charge to our global community, as part of our mission to end financial crime.
