External Event Accreditation

As part of our efforts to improve the experience of our members, ACAMS has recently streamlined its recertification processes and waived related fees for partners holding external events related to AFC.

 

Starting July 1st, 2022, we will no longer accredit 3rd party external events for the purpose of recertification requirements. As an alternative, we will provide our members with a list of requirements for third-party training opportunities to qualify for external non-ACAMS recertification credits, designed to ensure the quality of ongoing education for certified anti-financial crime (AFC) professionals remains high. Members seeking accreditation for non-ACAMS events will continue to be responsible for submitting the documentation to prove their participation in the training to certifications@acams.org.

 

The recertification credits will no longer be referred to as "CAMS credits" after June 30th, 2022 and will instead be cited as "non-ACAMS credits." All previously accredited events will be honored until the expiration of the accreditation (one year from the date of the event).

 

We will continue accepting and processing accreditation requests from 3rd party providers until June 30th, 2022. Please review the ACAMS Event Accreditation Guidelines to determine if your event is eligible. Providers wishing to accredit their event may fill out the CAMS Accreditations Application Form.

 

Below you may download/access the list of events accredited by ACAMS, along with the number of credits awarded. The training opportunities in this list evidence high-quality AML and financial crime training.
