CAMS is the gold standard in AML certifications and recognized internationally by financial institutions, governments and regulators as a serious commitment to protecting the financial system against money laundering. Institutions with CAMS-certified compliance teams:

  • Drive a culture of compliance from the top down by building highly skilled teams staffed with subject matter expertscams
  • Demonstrate to regulators and examiners their dedication to a standardized risk-based approach for protecting against money laundering threats and financial crime risks
  • Attract, retain and reward top talent by placing a premium on certified professionals according to the 2015 ACAMS AML/CFT/FCP Compensation Survey
  • Meet mandated AML training requirements through preparation and study and satisfy ongoing training through recertification and advanced certification activities
  • Safeguard against financial and reputational damage

The ACAMS Advanced Certification Programs

Once a professional earns the CAMS certification, and is ready to elevate his/her career to the next stage, he/she chooses an advanced certification to specialize in. Students of the programs engage in intensive self-study and research, attend a three-day live course, and submit as their final assessment a whitepaper on an approved topic.
