A Cost-Effective Solution to Obtaining Risk Assessment Training

In order to help your teams learn to better face the daily challenges of changing business environments and ever-growing regulatory requirements, ACAMS created this Risk Assessment Certificate Course.

Risk Assessment is at the core of every AML decision, so the better you do at this core step, the better all your AML policies and procedures will be. This online training will teach you the process for risk assessment, how to use it to find gaps in your internal controls, and how to build an AML risk assessment for your institution.

Participants who successfully complete the Risk Assessment Certificate course receive*:

  • A certificate of completion proving their commitment to protecting their institution from financial crimes by demonstrating understanding of Risk Assessment
  • 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 Risk Assessment, 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 Risk Assessment
  • 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
