Short Description:
The imperative for improved and comprehensive risk management within financial transactions involving clients and partners is increasingly evident, not only within the financial sector but also among legal and accounting professionals. This urgency is further underscored by the Ministry of Labour, Welfare, and Social Insurance’s published statistics in the economic crime domain, indicating a consistent rise in financial misconduct across various industries, irrespective of their size or sector.

Recognizing the gravity of combating financial crime, both the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Cyprus (ICPAC) and the Cyprus Bar Association (CBA) have set forth stringent standards for Anti-Money Laundering (AML) officers within their respective domains. They have introduced specialized AML Certificates attainable through rigorous examinations, which are open to their members and individuals aspiring to serve as AML officers in these fields.
The overarching objective of this comprehensive program is to equip participants with the requisite knowledge, skills, and attitudes to excel in these examinations and, in turn, to empower them to navigate their respective industries with proficiency.
