An Alternative to ACAMS


 ACFCS was established with an intent to provide a certification and ongoing training that looked beyond just AML & Fraud, to also train on their intersection with other critical areas such as tax evasion, cyber-crime, sanctions, terrorist financing, human trafficking, and much more. 

 As financial criminals evolve and regulatory expectations (and fines) increase, a previously siloed approach has given way to a need for more collaborative culture of compliance requiring effective  communication and a broader understanding of potential risks at all roles within the financial organization.  

 ACFCS broader training combined with our CFCS Certification are uniquely positioned to offer some of the most valuable resources to protect your institution and we do so at some of the best pricing available anywhere.
