ACAMS Translates CAMS® into German and Announces Training Partnership with Frankfurt School of Finance & Management
The Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) is pleased to announce two strategic initiatives to support anti-financial crime professionals in Germany.
As part of its continued European expansion and ongoing commitment to developing ACAMS’ member services throughout the region, ACAMS’ globally recognized certified anti-money laundering specialist (CAMS®) accreditation program has been translated into German and will be launched at Frankfurt School Verlag’s Risiko Geldwäsche 2017 conference on November 29, 2017. CAMS® is widely regarded as a leader in the area of anti-money laundering certifications and recognized internationally by financial institutions, governments and regulators.
ACAMS and Frankfurt School of Finance & Management (Frankfurt School) are also pleased to announce the formation of a strategic training partnership to support AML professionals in Germany preparing for the CAMS® qualification. Frankfurt School’s inaugural CAMS® in German preparation training course will be held on March 21, 2018 with the first course graduates expected to take the examination at official testing centers across Germany in April.
“We are delighted to enter into partnership with such a prestigious business school as Frankfurt School Verlag and to include them in ACAMS’ network of international training partners,” said Angela Salter, ACAMS’ head of Europe. “We look forward to working closely with Frankfurt School to strengthen professionals’ international anti-money laundering expertise through CAMS® in German.”
“AML and financial crimes are global issues, and providing a globally recognized qualification, alongside local regulatory education, is very important to ACAMS,” added Salter. “We continue to invest in growing services for ACAMS members throughout Europe and know that organizations want their AML/CTF/CDD and sanctions professionals to have a guaranteed level of competence evidenced by a robust global qualification. The German-speaking, anti-financial crime community is a very important market for ACAMS and this widens the global appeal of CAMS®. ACAMS is proud to offer CAMS in a total of 11 languages.”
“As one of Europe’s leading international business schools specializing in finance and compliance, we’re delighted that the Frankfurt School will now offer training for the globally recognized CAMS® certification in German and English,” said Ms. Tina Vangelista, head of competence center governance and audit, professional and executive education, Frankfurt School. “This will sit alongside our established compliance and AML programming and confirms Frankfurt School’s commitment to delivering innovative and high-quality training that complements our well-established certification ‘Certified Compliance Professional’ (CCP).”
