Video Webinar: BSA Basics

Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) rules present one of the higher risk areas for any financial institution. Reviewed in each Safety and Soundness exam by your primary regulator, BSA/AML programs are no problem - until they aren’t. The reality is that BSA/AML program requirements are very complicated and are something that examiners review closely during each examination. Therefore, it is important that financial institutions have a strong understanding of what is required of them.

BSA Basics is a program designed as a higher-level overview of the requirements of a BSA/AML program for banks and credit unions. Taking just over an hour to complete, BSA Basics is a quick and efficient way to get general BSA/AML training - without even leaving your office. As you are most likely well aware of, examiners often want to see that both BSA officers and applicable staff/management receive appropriate “outside” BSA/AML training - and BSA Basics is an easy and affordable way to do just that.

In this program, we discuss:

  • What is BSA?

  • What is Money Laundering?

  • A simple example of how money laundering can work.

  • The five pillars of BSA (with a good look at the newest pillar, CDD)

  • A general overview of many key BSA requirements including SARs, CTRs, CIP, 314(a), OFAC, record keeping requirements, and others.

  • Additional resources for learning more about BSA/AML rules.

This program would be beneficial for new BSA Officers and staff, compliance officers, senior management looking for quick executive summary-type BSA training, auditors, branch managers, department managers, and anyone looking for an overview of the BSA/AML requirements for financial institutions.

The Virtual Classroom Approach

All of our Compliance Classes are presented in our virtual classroom approach.  This approach is designed to bring the presenter to you (at a fraction of the cost of having a live person) and includes a video of the presenter in front of a slide presentation that replicates a typical seminar environment.  In addition, our presenters take a three-part approach to compliance instruction: to educate, to empower, and to entertain. This is achieved by focusing on relevant topics, speaking in simple to understand, layman's terms, and by keeping it light and humorous whenever possible.  We have found that this "3-E" approach allow students to learn as quickly and effectively as possible. And, it adds a little bit of fun to an otherwise dreadful topic.

Certificate of Completion

Certificates of completion are now available upon request. One certificate is available per registration.

60-Day Access
