Based on CySEC’s latest Announcement dates 17/12/2019, the new exams for the certification of Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Officers aim to ensure that the individuals who are appointed as AML Compliance Officers have been properly trained. The exams certify that AML Compliance Officers have the necessary knowledge and are able to fulfill their assigned duties with competence.

The exams are conducted as part of CySEC’s efforts to contribute in the Republic’s effort to prevent the use of the wider financial system for money laundering and terrorist financing, by following the international standards of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) as well as the relevant EU Directives and especially the 4th Directive of the European Parliament and Council.

The aim of the preparation course is to help participants gain an understanding of the AML Legal Framework and increase their chances of successfully passing the AML Compliance Officer Exam.


The main objective of the course is to provide a clear understanding of the Anti-Money Laundering Syllabus Learning Map, and thus help the participants in best preparing for the AML Exam. As a secondary objective, participants will likely be able to benefit themselves and their organizations by applying their increased knowledge with regards to the covered legislations, while at the same time gaining CPD credits. Examples and practice questions will be covered during the course in order to increase awareness of the taught material.
