Packages take you on a learning journey

The courses are demanding. They require both dedication and time. They are also rewarding: you will learn things that you will not learn anywhere else. You will learn to think critically about our subject from multiple perspectives. You will learn our various mantras and why they have worked for a quarter of a century. Here are the top three.

1. There are no solutions, only better managed risk.

2. Legislators and compliance teams tend to think in straight lines; criminals think around corners.

3. Don’t think outside the box: deny there’s a box.

Learning Ladder TM

Learning Ladder takes you and your staff from absolute beginner to Advanced.

With certificates every step of the way to demonstrate achievements to current and future employers and to regulators, with Portable CPD TM where recognised and credits towards your Certificate in Financial Crime Risk and Compliance (and the designation cFCRC) we provide the most structured learning for entire organisations, from bottom to top and across the entire breadth of operations.

Course Certificates

Every course includes a certificate which is issued online to users who successfully pass the examination. Not all courses have examinations and, in that case, certificates of completion are issued when every page has been read.

Course certificates are issued electronically and can be downloaded. They are recorded in our system and are accessible to employers if a user is part of an employer's scheme. If an employee is not part of such a scheme, then employers do not have access to training records and/or certificates.

Course certificates are required to prove to both employers and regulators that relevant persons have achieved the required standard of training.

There is no charge for the issue of an electronic certificate.

Certificates are valid for one year after examination, even though a user's subscription to a course may have expired.

Portable CPD ™ 

Our courses can count towards your CPE/CPD hours for many professional bodies. Each course has a CPD hours notice.

Some professional bodies, e.g. lawyers' and others, require that their members achieve a certain number of hours of Continuous Professional Development (or Education) every year. Usually, they do not require that the CPD be provided by an approved provider although some do.

We provide both a time estimate and a recommended CPD/E hours figure for our courses that we consider reach the level suitable for regulatory acceptance.

We are not part of any CPD/E approvals scheme. We operate globally and approvals schemes are almost invariably single jurisdiction. Some approvals schemes are single industry / profession within a single jurisdiction. We cannot be expected to join literally hundreds of approval schemes across industries and around the world.

You can check with your professional body if they will accept education from outside their approvals scheme for CPD. It is worth noting that even those that have an approvals scheme often also allow hours for general reading and our courses are likely to be accepted under that head.

Note: where we are asked by a specific regulator or profession to develop a specific course for its members, that will usually be granted CPD/E status by the regulator or professional body.

Our CPD is portable because it is allocated to individual persons, not to their employer. This means that employers can accept a certificate from us as evidence that a hew hire - including a temporary member of staff - has received the appropriate training.

It also means that if your bank, etc. has an arrangement with a temp agency, the agency can be required to have all candidates trained using our scheme before being proposed for engagement.

Certificate in Financial Crime Risk and Compliance (cFCRC)

Every course attracts credits towards the Certificate in Financial Crime Risk and Compliance which allows users to use the designation cFCRC after their name. 

Achieving the certificate is not easy. You will work hard . You will need to obtain, and maintain, a balance of 300 credits in your training account. Credits expire after two years. You only need to replace expired credits.

Keeping it active isn't easy, either. Financial Crime, especially from a regulatory standpoint, is a fast moving area and as a practitioner you must keep up. So you are required to keep an active balance of course credits in your account in order to keep your designation alive.

Those who have achieved the Certificate will be listed in a non-public Register on this website for verification purposes.

 If a designation lapses, that fact will be noted in the register. You may ask at any time for your details to be omitted from the Register. 

The Certificate is in hard copy so you can put it on your wall. 

There is no fee for the issue of the first Certificate but there will be a printing, posting and packing charge which will depend on where the certificate is mailed to and your choice of delivery service. 

The Certificate will not include an expiry date but it will include a URL or a QR code so that its continued validity may be verified online. 

 If a designation lapses, that fact will be noted in the register. You may ask at any time for your details to be omitted from the Register. 

The Certificate is in hard copy so you can put it on your wall. 

There is no fee for the issue of the first Certificate but there will be a post and packing charge. 

Your certificate is prepared including a QR code that links to a copy of your certificate on this website. The hard copy is sent to you with a note of the reference address. 


Membership and annual fees

There is no membership group, society or association. There are no annual fees. You pay only for the courses you want to take. The course price includes the examination and an e-certificate. 

The only additional fees are a) if you want more than one copy of your cFCRC certificate and b) for postage and packing of cFCRC certificates.
