ICA Advanced Certificate in Practical Customer Due Diligence (CDD)

Overview

It has never been more important to have robust controls and procedures in place to Know Your Customer (KYC). Adequate due diligence on new and existing customers is a key part of these controls. Without this due diligence, your firm can become subject to reputational, operational, legal and financial risks.

This qualification has been designed for KYC Analysts and professionals who manage risk in the Customer Due Diligence (CDD) process. The only professional qualification in practical CDD, this course will help you make sound judgements and pinpoint areas of potential risk.

This qualification is awarded in association with Alliance Manchester Business School, the University of Manchester.
