Course Outline & Dates



  • Lead Training Services have recently organised, to our utmost satisfaction a n accredited course leading to the Certification in Anti-Money Laundering and Funding of Terrorism.
    Both the training delivery and learning content have served us very well in this critical, compliance training requirement within the financial services industry.

    Executive Head, Training Centre, Bank of Valletta
  • I attended an Anti-Money Laundering and Funding of Terrorism compliance course and found the content and structure of the course most useful. The course was tested with an exam at the end and a certificate was issued; the course content was excellent and both presenters over the 6 weeks of the course provided a high quality of training. The fact that the course was tested at the end was most useful as it confirmed the value we received from attending.

  • I have attended the course ‘Certificate in Anti-Money Laundering and Funding of Terrorism’ and I must say it was very interesting and very relevant to the practical side of today’s real case situations. The tutors were very understanding and focussed and LEAD’s admin was pretty much up to scratch to ensure we were being provided a good service. I shall definitely be using LEAD training services again and would definitely recommend to others.
