    Risk Assessment Course Content

    The ACAMS Risk Assessment Certificate has been developed by our team of global subject-matter experts. Participants will gain an understanding of both inherent and residual risk, and will learn how institutions can identify, understand, and measure these risks through effective AML risk assessment.


    This training course covers international standards and legal obligations, and gives guidance on what examiners are looking for from an institution’s AML risk assessment. Lessons and examples are relevant to any industry, but the primary focus of study is financial institutions, including banks, credit unions, payment providers, asset managers, and money services businesses (MSBs).


    This course will help you understand:

    • How risk assessment influences AML policies and procedures
    • How to utilize risk assessment to find gaps in your internal controls
    • How to build an AML risk assessment for your institution


    Virtual Classrooms

    The Risk Assessment course includes two 90-minute, live Virtual Classrooms. These Virtual Classrooms are pre-scheduled before you purchase the course.


    The classroom sessions are designed to help you retain key concepts from the training course. During the Virtual Classrooms, you can interact with fellow participants and the instructor to receive advice and answers to any questions you have.
