AML/CTF Course

A comprehensive course to understand the AML/CTF in Australia

Our online AML/CTF Course provides comprehensive coverage of AUSTRAC, ML/TF risk management, customer due diligence, reporting and record keeping requirements under the AML/CTF Act or the FTR Act.

Comply with obligations under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (AML/CTF Act) or the Financial Transaction Reports Act 1988 (FTR Act).
