The AML Certification Examination for ICPAC and CBA Professionals

In 2023, the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) certification was released to help enhance the knowledge and skillsets of professionals wanting to pursue Legal and Accounting careers within compliance and AML in Cyprus. The Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Cyprus (ICPAC) and the Cyprus Bar Association (CBA) has come together to establish a nationally recognised AML compliance certification using the best international standards.

The AML certification is aimed at AML Compliance Officers (AMLCO) that are currently or recently appointed an AMLCO at ICPAC or CBC firms to ensure they are fit and proper to perform their AML compliance duties. Hence, all current or newly appointed AMLCO are required to obtain the AML certification to maintain their position at a regulated ICPAC or CBA firm in Cyprus. Additionally, the AML exam can also be undertaken by aspiring AMLCO professionals including professionals that want to increase their knowledge and understanding of the AML regulatory framework.

How we can help professionals successfully prepare for the AML certification exam for ICPAC and CBA professionals

Since 2020, we have been collaborating with the Institute for Professional Excellence (IforPE) to share our knowledge and expertise with professionals operating in financial services. Most recently, the Education team at SALVUS developed The Most CompleteTM AML certification mock exam course to prepare AML exam candidates for success and to achieve compliance with the relevant law.

Each mock exam simulates the exam format and style and once an exam has been completed, candidates will receive their score and feedback for each question they answered to help enhance their knowledge of the AML regulations.

Successful AML exam candidates will become certified and will be required to complete a minimum of 10 hours of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) training per year to uphold their certification’s validity. This is to ensure their knowledge and skills remain up to date with the latest AML regulatory developments. Moreover, our Education team at SALVUS prepares online self-study CPD courses geared toward professionals requiring CPD units to maintain their certification’s validity – browse our CPD courses catalogue here.
