Tim Tyler

Director of Qualifications

As Director, Qualifications, Tim is responsible for the development and delivery of the wide range of ICA courses from Certificate to Post Graduate Diploma.

Tim joined the ICA from the Gambling Commission where, as AML lead, he was responsible for all aspects of AML regulatory and supervisory activity. This was preceded by thirty years in UK Law Enforcement spanning the police, Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) and National Crime Agency. During this time he led a number of functions including the Proceeds of Crime Operational Command within SOCA, and the UK International Crime Bureau, responsible for criminal and fugitive enquiries transacted between the UK and the rest of the world.

Countering the threat of financial crime has been a recurrent theme throughout Tim’s career. He established money laundering investigation teams across the UK and in strategic locations around the world. He developed innovative tactics to counter the threat and worked with many domestic and international partners to track and eliminate laundering at source. Earlier in his career Tim worked in partnership with the Serious Fraud Office and overseas agencies including the FBI in the investigation of complex fraud and corruption. The understanding and specialist skills he developed over this time combine with his experience as a supervisor and mean that Tim offers significant insight and practical expertise as a trainer and as the lead for qualifications within the ICA.
