  • 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.

  • During this course I had the opportunity to gain more knowledge about the policies and procedures of money laundering. Also, I found this certificate useful because it was related to my job as well. Prior to this course there were some areas that I did not know much about and due to this course I was able to to enhance my knowledge on these particular areas especially when it comes to the different directives, penalties, and much more.

  • The course I attended was extremely informative. Lecturers gave clear and detailed sessions, Which led to the final Q&A session and assessment. Every session was accompanied by slides and examples of real-life situations were given to explain the subject person’s obligations and responsibilities. Overall, sessions were interesting, enjoyable and open for discussion. I highly recommend these courses and training sessions.
    A. Fenech, February 2020
  • The course combines the general approach towards the concept and the characteristics of the money laundering with a thorough and encompassing analysis of the Maltese and international regulations. The lecturers are very professional and efficient in providing the information and, most importantly, in facilitating the student to think independently and to build a critical thinking. Apart from the theory, the course abounds in case studies and concrete examples, which help the student comprehend the applicability of the AML rules in real-life situations.
    I strongly recommend this course and consider it a good opportunity to learn about the AML legal rules and obligations, as well as to understand the role and importance of the public authorities, company’s management and the MLRO in preventing and fighting money laundering.
