Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) Certification

Next course starts August 2021

Fundamental to anyone engaged in any international business, including the activities of non-profit organizations, is the need to comply with anti-bribery laws prohibiting the bribery of foreign public officials. Most countries now have such laws and an increasing number of countries are actively enforcing such laws. Indeed, the penalties imposed are massive in terms of fines and frequently lead to prison terms for violators. No entity engaged international business is exempt as these laws are applied far beyond the boarders of the countries enforcing the law. Anyone claiming an expertise in money laundering should have a sound understanding of these anti-bribery laws.

The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is not only the most actively enforced anti-bribery law, but also the basis upon which virtually all anti-bribery laws are based. The only other law that has as broad a reach is the UK Bribery Act. Developing a sound understanding of these two laws provides a firm basis upon which to address anti-bribery laws now being actively enforced in much of the world. This professional certification includes 15 modules over a period of 8 weeks. Its curriculum delivers to the marketplace individuals with practical knowledge of the field, able to work for the private sector, regulators, enforcement agencies and governments.
