The Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS), a credentialing program for professionals involved in the detection and control of money laundering and compliance with anti-money laundering laws and regulations was launched recently at Money Laundering Alert’s Seventh Annual International Money Laundering Conference in Miami.
This new profession, a cross between sophisticated law enforcement and the concerned business community, has grown to bring the control of money laundering and compliance with anti-money laundering regulations to a new level in the United States and its trading partners.
*”With the increased money laundering risks in today’s environment, it is important that the persons who monitor and control them know what they are looking for and how financial institutions and businesses must respond. ACAMS seeks to provide that level of comfort through a top-notch professional certification program,”* said Charles Intriago of Money Laundering Alert.
The unique ACAMS will provide a comprehensive credentialing process of education and testing that leads to the trademarked designation “CAMS” (Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist). The CAMS designation can only be used by individuals who complete the rigorous program of training and testing provided by ACAMS.
