Graduates also earn CPAML certification from the Florida International Bankers Association (“FIBA”), through completion of the program’s rigorous AML/BSA course of study. The CPAML is a credential tailor-made for a management or supervisory position in senior compliance, risk, and consulting. Graduates earning the CPAML credential can maintain their certification in active status by participating in 10 hours of continuing AML education annually. Continuing AML education credits may be obtained through a variety of programs, such as the FIBA Anti Money Laundering Conference, FIBA webinars, select FIBA events, other approved AML training programs, or through in-house AML training at the graduate’s banking institution.
