You’ll start with the basics

Your education begins with learning the basics of UK sanctions and progressing to reading assignments in preparation for one of two 90-minute online, interactive classes.

You’ll get a thorough grounding

The first class gives you a thorough grounding in UK policy from enactment to administration, discussing Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2018 (SAMLA), OFSI and other agencies. The second class discusses how to recognize sanctions risks, due diligence and screening, reporting a breach to OFSI, and other topics, all guiding you on the creation of your own sanctions compliance program.

You’ll develop your understanding

We’ll elaborate on UK guidance, talk about the consequences of non-compliance, and cover the topics that you must know. You will experience Q&A sessions, student polls, and practice questions prepared so that you understand all aspects of UK compliance before your one-hour exam of multiple-choice questions.

Only part of what you will know by the end of the course…
