A Cost-Effective Way to Achieve Transaction Monitoring Training

In order to help your teams learn to better identify unusual customer activity so you can more effectively control and report it, ACAMS created this Transaction Monitoring training Certificate Course.

The knowledge gained from this AML training can help your teams identify situations in which money-laundering alerts should be triggered, based on what the authorities expect. The program can also help your teams learn how to properly apply controls to monitor transaction activity for both manual and automated systems. Additionally, it can help your teams learn how to detect unusual activity and generate, analyze and understand alerts in order to determine the proper course of action like filing a suspicious activity report or a suspicious transaction report. Your teams can be empowered to assure quality and continuous improvement by continually tuning transaction monitoring alert thresholds.

Participants who successfully complete the Transaction Monitoring Certificate course receive*:

Additionally, an introductory first year of ACAMS membership and all accompanying benefits is included with registration for ACAMS Certificates courses.
