Class Location: CIB Conference Center, 4685 MacArthur Court, 3rd Floor, Newport Beach, CA 92660

The formal requirements for financial institution compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act are no less important today than they were in 2001 when the U.S.A. Patriot Act substantively increased BSA/AML requirements. Moreover, examiners continue to scrutinize bank BSA/AML programs. This Institute will cover all of the requirements of each segment of the regulation and attendees will receive guidance on best practice expectations in each area.

When completed, each attendee will have the in-depth knowledge, resources and peer network to effectively manage their BSA/AML function and to audit this function properly.

In addition, participants will be offered the opportunity to successfully pass two comprehensive exams and receive a formal BSA/AML professional designation. Our objective for the Certified BSA/AML Professional (CBAP) certification is to meet the comprehensive educational needs of BSA/AML officers and auditors of community financial institutions up to $2.5 billion in total assets.
