LEAD Training Services has launched the first accredited qualification, a Certificate in Anti-Money Laundering and Funding of Terrorism, to be organised in Malta.

To obtain the qualification, issued by the National Commission of Higher and Further Education (NCFHE), delegates must attend all modules and obtain a minimum pass in the final two-hour written examination, held at the end of the programme. There will also be team-based case studies during each module as a form of assessment.

Commenting on the new accredited qualification, James Grech, Managing Director of LEAD Training Services, said: "This is an ideal course for professionals who want to understand the concepts of money laundering and want to become aware of obligations arising under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act and other relevant legislation and guidelines.

"I am confident we have put together an excellent team of trainers who have developed top notch training material for this specialised programme."

Module 1, Introduction to Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing, will be delivered by Josette Mallia; Module 2, The Risk-Based Approach and Reporting Requirements, and Module 4, Governance and Training, will be delivered by Claire Gauci; and Module 3, Implementing Customer Due Diligence Procedures, will be delivered by Dr Claire Calleja.
