Heightened regulation over the last decade has emphasised the need to ensure your business is conducted in compliance with laws, professional standards and internal policies. It is one of the many roles of the Compliance Officer to ensure the firm develops systems and controls that can help achieve full compliance.

CCL have developed this programme to meet the needs of today’s Compliance Officer. It will consider the role of ethics and the importance of setting the “tone from the top” before looking at how the Compliance function fits into the firm’s overall structure. Then there will be a thorough examination of the main areas the Compliance Officer needs to focus on, and the three key roles of advising, educating and monitoring.

This Certificate course has been endorsed by the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) and provides attendees with the practical skills and knowledge required to carry out the Compliance function in line with international regulations and best practice.

The workshop style programme uses a variety of teaching methods, including relevant case studies, illustrative examples and participant interaction to help attendees quickly grasp and internalise new knowledge. It has been designed by Compliance Officers and former Regulators who between them have over 50 years of compliance experience.
