Video Webinar: BSA Bootcamp! - A Foundational BSA/AML Class

If you are looking for an online Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) video training program that covers the key areas of a BSA/AML program, you have come to the right place.

The BSA Bootcamp! is designed to be a foundational (and comprehensive!) online course on the Bank Secrecy Act and anti-money laundering (AML) rules.  Twice the length of a typical webinar, this Compliance Class runs around 3 ½ hours and takes a deep dive into the core elements of BSA rules that any BSA/AML professional should know and understand.  

This comprehensive program is broken up into five different parts and explains 1) where the BSA rules came from, 2) how risk management should be at the foundation of any BSA program, 3) what the 5 pillars of BSA are and how they should be implemented in a financial institution, 4) the key areas of a BSA/AML program, and concludes with 5) some practical tips for understanding and managing a BSA program.  The BSA Bootcamp! Includes both a comprehensive manual and 3 training videos. (See the full class curriculum below.)

Using layman’s terms and practical examples, this program is both comprehensive and easy to understand, and incorporates a bit of fun into the process.  Not to mention a few good money laundering and fraud case studies (stories).

While specifically designed as a foundational class for those new to BSA, this program would be beneficial for both new and seasoned BSA Officers, BSA back-ups, auditors, and anyone else with BSA responsibilities or oversight.  This program would also serve as a comprehensive “refresher” for those looking for and easy-to-access BSA/AML training.

NOTE: The BSA Bootcamp! is a comprehensive BSA/AML training course that takes around 3 1/2 hours to complete. If you are looking for a shorter, higher-level overview of BSA/AML rules for financial institutions, be sure to check out our BSA Basics class here.

What is Included in the Compliance Class?

This Compliance Class is the length of two typical webinars and can be completed in about 3 1/2 hours. This class will provide you with everything you need to know about the foundational elements of a BSA/AML program.

The class includes the following:

  • A comprehensive course manual (67 pages)

  • 60-day access to the class

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

When you purchase this compliance class, you get instant access to the online version of this class for 60 days.  You will also receive an electronic version of the accompanying manual to keep.
