Anti-Money Laundering Advanced Course 



All estate and letting agents dealing with high value property are required to comply with:

  • Anti-Money Laundering Regulations.
  • Anti Bribery Act.

Agents must also comply with the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Employers must also ensure that their staff have had training on AML law and risk. This course is designed to do this to the standard set out by the estate and letting agency AML regulator, HMRC. 

The Advanced AML course builds on the learning from the foundation course and specifically focuses on the additional things that office managers and business owners need to think about.

This module considers the various risks applicable to property agents and how these might need to be considered and addressed in a firm’s money laundering risk assessment within its AML policy and how that might be reflected in the associated procedures.
