Via this partnership, FILS global clientele will have easy access to professional certificates in compliance, AML and other GRC subjects.
LONDON, United Kingdom – The London Governance and Compliance Academy (LGCA) has teamed up with the Association of Governance, Risk & Compliance and First Intuition Learning Solutions (FILS), a UK-based professional education and training company that focuses on the accounting sector, to expand the reach of its professional qualifications and courses in compliance, AML, KYC/CDD, sanctions compliance, and more.
As part of this newly minted partnership, FILS will be making LGCA and AGRC’s portfolio of governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) courses available to its international accounting clients in more than 65 countries.
Courses to be delivered as part of this initiative include AGRC’s certificates in AML, KYC/CDD, Compliance, and Sanctions, as well as a range of introductory or fundamental courses that cover these topics plus Anti-Bribery & Corruption, Corporate Governance, and the Financial Services’ Regulatory Framework.
These Level 3 certifications are ideal for recent graduates looking to enter the GRC world or experienced professionals who would like to refresh their skills on these topics and be better equipped to deal with a rapidly changing UK and global regulatory framework.
Additionally, LGCA’s FCA Compliance Library, which includes 14 of the hottest topics in the UK compliance sphere, will be available to organisations that are regulated by the FCA.
FCA titles include Market Abuse, SMCR, Vulnerable Customer Management, Conflict of Interest, AML and CFT, CASS, Best Execution, Cybersecurity, and Approved Persons Regime, among others.
Marios Siathas, who serves as LGCA’s Managing Director, said: “We’re thrilled to join forces with AGRC and FILS to deliver Level 3 professional qualifications in compliance, AML, and KYC/CDD, as well as FCA compliance courses, to a greater range of clients. Considering FILS’ knowledge of and contacts within the accounting world, we believe this was an obvious next step to reaching more customers who would benefit from such certifications. The fact is regulatory obligations in the financial services world are evolving at light speed, so professionals in all sectors need to stay abreast of what’s going on to avoid reputational damage or penalties for their organisations.”
These courses will be offered by LGCA in the self-paced, online modality, and should cover the needs of even the most demanding GRC professionals in the global and UK markets.
FILS’ Managing Director Dominic Light said: “At a time when accounting students and employees are increasingly expected to demonstrate an understanding of corporate governance, risk, compliance and AML, we’re delighted to announce our alliance with AGRC and LGCA. Through the partnership, our students and clients can diversify their professional training and development and offer a wider choice of certification across their training portfolio.
We look forward to working with the team at AGRC and LGCA as we implement the partnership into our global network and strategy”
All programs will be available to FILS clients starting in September 2022.
