Courses must fall into one or more of the following Course Access Categories:
A – be open to the general public but of relevance to counter-money laundering professionals
B – be open to the general public but especially designed for compliance officers, money laundering risk officers and those in similar professional roles
C – be especially designed for and restricted to compliance officers, money laundering risk officers and those in similar professional roles
D – be designed for and presented to the staff of a single business entity or group.
Courses will be classified as to level as follows:
I – Foundation (for those with no or little previous knowledge)
II – Intermediate (for those who have previously attended a Foundation level course)
II – Advanced (for those with substantial previous knowledge)
IV – Update (short courses for intermediate or advanced level as a refresher or covering updated material)
CPE hours will be assessed according to the level of the course: for example, an foundation course will not attract CPE hours for progression from Member to Fellow, except where a Member is the presenter and claiming CPE hours under that head.
