Companies in the financial sector are subject to ever-increasing regulations. As a result, familiarity with implementation and adherence to laws, regulations, and voluntary commitment is becoming more and more complex. For many companies, this presents a major organisational challenge, as breaches have a lasting effect on a company’s reputation and have become an enormous operational risk.
The European Certified Compliance Professional (ECCP) aims to provide participants with the required know-how and skills to deal with current compliance risks and challenges. The course consists of various modules covering a wide range of topics and is ideally aligned with practical requirements. It promotes the development of competence through the combination of knowledge and applied learning. The course content will be provided by our online learning platform, regular online seminars and online case studies. Moreover, you will have the chance to discuss the topics during the classroom sessions with top lecturers and practitioners.
The course is divided into two units.

For companies in the financial sector it is difficult to stay up to date and comply with laws and regulations, or to make voluntary commitments to codes of conduct. Since compliance has become an essential factor in risk management with a company-wide responsibility, it is becoming more and more important for Compliance Professionals to achive the required know how.
