About the Compliance Training Series

A comprehensive program of highly engaging sessions, delivered one-day per week over 4 weeks, the series builds upon the knowledge gained by the participants each week, ensuring that, by the end of the series, they are fully prepared to deliver compliance, risk and accountability standards right across the organisation.

CTS comprises Cayman Islands specific content, and is highly interactive, using real-life case studies, scenario-building and problem solving exercises to ensure attendees experience both a high level of engagement and a deep understanding of the complex issues that must be addressed by todays Compliance Officers.

Any firm that is going to succeed in managing their business risk, and thrive overall, needs a professional, well trained and experienced Compliance Officer to support that process. Certified and assessed CTS attendees will be extensively prepared to fulfill this role and can also earn up to 24 ACAMS credits for this course.

CTS is unlike any other compliance training you may have seen or attended.

Lisa uses her expertise in  presenting the various topics to the class, she was very patient,  engaging  and ensured we understood every aspect and provided  examples to reinforce the training. 

This training course has certainly enhanced my work and broadens my knowledge as a Financial  Investigator and I can state that it’s one of the most valuable courses I have attended.  

It is an excellent training course and I recommend it to anyone

Although I did not attend all of the sessions of the Compliance Training Series (CTS), I walked away from the sessions that I did attend with better understanding as a “new to industry” Compliance Officer.

The sessions also indirectly prepared me for The Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) Examination that I sat and passed on 28-Nov-17.

With all of the recent changes to some of the relevant Cayman Islands Laws, Regulations and Guidance, as well as the ever increasing challenges being faced in Compliance and Governance roles, I look forward to attending and benefitting from another series from CTS

Great explanation and details in each session, which I highly recommend to anyone looking to gain more knowledge in the compliance area as it definitely was a benefit in obtaining a pass on the CAMS exam.

Lisa’s clear and approachable style helps bring the topic to life and make it relevant to our work, so I would happily recommend her to other firms for their compliance training

Lisa is a knowledgeable educator who speaks with passion and conviction, drawing her audience into her subject matter. Lisa’s wealth of knowledge combined with relevant examples and enthusiastic speaking style makes learning a natural process for those who attend her courses

We engaged Lisa for our annual AML training in 2015 and found her to be very knowledgeable and a great presenter. She was successful in making a pretty technical subject both interesting and enjoyable and in particular was able to tailor the content to the specifics of our particular business. As a result, our staff were very engaged and we received really positive feedback about the training. I would certainly recommend Lisa to others
