BSA/AML Officer Recertification Program (Two-Day Course)

It’s time to recertify!

Keeping up with all the changes in BSA/AML is more important than ever. This recertification program for our popular and prestigious BSA/AML Officer Certification Program provides updated training and recertification to BSA/AML Officer Certification holders who have completed their initial BSA/AML Officer Certification. It provides them with the detailed training and accreditation they need to keep pace in the rapidly changing BSA/AML environment and protect the financial institution from the legal, regulatory and reputation risks that are a regulatory focus, and maintain their prestigious CBAO designation.

BSA Certification for Second Year attendees is explores in greater depth BSA/AML and OFAC issues building on the foundational elements presented with the first year certification and continuing education and also serves as an update and refresh of essential concepts, policies and practices. These sessions focus on topics of material importance in today’s BSA realm moving beyond the basics and into greater depth on those areas where exposure is increasing.

Successful completion of this training satisfies the training requirements to continue the prestigious BSA OFFICER designation awarded by BankersWeb and Sheshunoff Consulting + Solutions.


The program consists of:

  • Discussion on implementing Enterprise Risk Management principles into the BSA/AML/OFAC Risk Assessment to go beyond more than a score.
  • Today’s rising areas of BSA/AML Risk and what institutions can do to promote effective risk mitigation strategies.
  • Expanded review of the role of customer/member risk awareness, key areas where procedural documentation is a must, the challenge and role of enhanced due diligence and what must be done to reduce regulatory criticisms in this key area.
  • Expanded coverage of SAR narrative principles including alert analysis and case investigation processes and examples of SAR filing/non-filing decisions based on presented transactional activity and how decisioning requires documentation support to meet regulatory scrutiny.
  • Expanded discussion on BSA/AML and OFAC Systems and the role of internal validation and external validation with expanded presentation on the merits and problems of AML systems.
  • Discussion and guidance on the BSA/AML Beneficial Ownership requirements including guidance and experience to date.
