Developing Compliance Writing Skills Course

The Compliance / AML unit is a key control function within regulated financial institutions, and it is of critical importance that Compliance and AML Officers can demonstrate they have the key skills required to do the job properly, including appropriate written skills.


This workshop-style programme will provide participants with the opportunity to review common forms of written Compliance reports and develop their own written skills.  It is highly interactive with group and individual exercises designed to allow participants to apply what they have learnt and acquire practical skills which they can implement afterwards.
