Effective financial intelligence, risk and compliance training forms the cornerstone of any organisation’s governance regime. Basic anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing training covers the fundamentals. Yet recent regulatory settlements have shown that basic training is no longer sufficient and financial institutions require the knowledge and tools to meet banking regulators' expectations and rules.
Partnership with ManchesterCF
The Institute’s partnership with ManchesterCF offers financial intelligence courses for financial institutions, public-sector agencies and multinational corporations.
Based in Toronto, ManchesterCF develops financial intelligence training programs with a global perspective. Their researchers and contributors hold decades of experience in their respected fields.
The growing list of Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) Connect modules are drawn from case studies, regulatory reports and developments in international financial markets.
Financial Intelligence Training Specialist Designation

An average grade of 80% from 12 completed modules is required for accreditation. There are no yearly membership fees, re-certification demands or continuing professional development requirements.
