A Cost-Effective Solution to Obtaining Ethics Training

In order to help your teams understand the importance of ethical behavior and how it impacts business success, ACAMS created this Ethics Certificate Course.

Ethics in a financial institution begins with setting the tone at the top and building and influencing an ethics based corporate culture. This online ethics training assesses business models, defines ethical behavior, and sheds light on internal processes and controls that should be in place to ensure ethical business practices.

Participants who successfully complete the Ethics Certificate course receive*:

  • A certificate of completion proving their commitment to protecting their institution from financial crimes by demonstrating understanding of ethics
  • Four CAMS credit hours to keep them on track towards CAMS certification or CAMS recertification

*Additionally, an introductory first year of ACAMS membership and all accompanying benefits is included with registration for ACAMS Certificates courses. Membership includes ongoing education and information resources on anti-money laundering, counter-terrorist financing, and other financial crimes.

In four weeks participants complete a mix of self-paced and live assignments:

  • A 30-minute video on the essentials of ethics, packed with examples, what-ifs, poll questions and other activities to fully engage the learner
  • Two 90-minute interactive live virtual classrooms which include case studies, Q&A sessions, polling and practice questions focusing on ethics
  • 15-minute homework encouraging engagement with the community of their peers
  • 15-minute final assessment which must be taken with the 4 weeks to earn the certificate
