Edcomm Banker's Academy recently launched a free tutorial that provides AML training for financial institutions in Barbados.

New York, NY, August 04, 2009 -- Edcomm Banker's Academy recently launched a free tutorial that provides Anti Money Laundering (AML) training for banks and financial institutions located in Barbados. Focus on Anti Money Laundering for Barbados offers an overview of the AML laws and regulations that are specific to financial institutions in this Caribbean country.

In 1988, Barbados criminalized money laundering through the Money Laundering (Prevention and Control) Act (MLPCA). The MLPCA made money laundering punishable by a maximum fine of approximately 1 million USD and 25 years in prison. In addition to these various acts, Barbados established the Anti-Money Laundering Authority (AMLA) in 2000. The AMLA serves as Barbados' Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU). The AMLA was instituted in order to ensure that all financial institutions in the country properly follow and adhere to compliance issued by the MLPCA.

Focus on Anti Money Laundering, from Edcomm Banker's Academy, teaches bank employees about AML laws in their country and familiarizes them with their company's own policies and procedures. Through this interactive course, students learn everything they need to know to detect and prevent money laundering. Focus on Anti Money Laundering can be customized to meet the needs of every Bank, Credit Union or Money Services Business (MSB). Each course is regularly updated to include changing laws and policies. Recognizing that money laundering can occur anywhere and everywhere, Edcomm Banker's Academy is prepared to create a course for any country in need.
