Oben e-Learning- AML/CFT course for Jersey and the Isle of Man

One of the most important aspects of controlling the risk of financial crime is making sure your employees have the requisite training. It not only helps to safeguard your business but is also legally mandated and is seen as a crucial preventative measure by regulators. Our AML/CFT training courses provide comprehensive explanations of applicable laws and regulations so that employees leave with a clear understanding of what constitutes money laundering, terrorist financing and proliferation financing and what they should do when they encounter suspicious activity.

Our modular training is interesting and engaging and can be accessed via a wide range of devices. Learners undertake knowledge checks throughout the course to test their progress and complete a marked assessment at the end of the course that allows you to demonstrate that the learning objectives have been met..  

Successful completion of our AML/CFT module should provide employees with the necessary knowledge and understanding required by regulation, but more so to ensure that they, in turn, comply with your AML/CFT control framework.

Given the volume of regulatory change, we had a need to provide additional AML training to our Compliance team and Directors. We wanted the training to be interactive and practical to ensure that the underlying legal obligations were brought to life. We brought in Oben as they have an excellent blend of legal, regulatory and compliance experts with extensive real life experience. We weren’t disappointed. Oben delivered practical and informative sessions which were tailored to our business needs, delivering real value.

We instructed Oben to completely redesign our AML/CFT Policy and Manual at a critical point in our business’s development. This was quite a sizable undertaking. During the process we were massively impressed by the depth of legal and regulatory knowledge exhibited by Alex, Jamie and Nicola. They worked fabulously well as a professional team and the work was of the highest quality. We particularly liked how they judged their points of consultation with us perfectly; determining what were the critical stages of the Manual’s development and when there was a judgement call to be made in respect of policy. Overall we found the experience of working with Oben professionally and personally rewarding as we find them to be a very clever and approachable bunch of people.
