Nov 7 - Nov 9, 2023 | VIRTUAL EVENT

The formal requirements for financial institution compliance under the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) are significant. With the regulatory agencies committing to tougher and more inclusive BSA/AML examinations, it is important to make certain your BSA/AML program is appropriate for your institution's risk exposure. 

Gain in-depth knowledge, resources, and peer networks to effectively manage your BSA/AML function or audit this function properly. This comprehensive training covers the primary requirements of each segment of the regulation and offers guidance on best practice expectations in each area.

To earn the Certified BSA/AML Professional (CBAP) certification, you will be required to attend this program in its entirety, complete all assignments, and achieve a passing score on the certification exam(s). If you decide to enroll in the certification testing after you register for the class, please contact a Community Banker University representative at 800-422-7285.

  • Review Bank Secrecy Act and Anti-Money Laundering program requirements, including emerging trends and industry observations.
