New AML/CTF e-learning modules have launched

AUSTRAC has released two new anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing (AML/CTF) e-learning modules.

These modules are aimed at reporting entities that conduct applicable customer identification procedures (ACIP) for non-individual customers, such as companies and trusts. They join the existing AUSTRAC e-learning suite, which is available to reporting entities to increase their understanding of AML/CTF regulation and their compliance obligations.

The new modules are:

  1. Applicable Customer Identification Procedures

  2. Beneficial owners and politically exposed persons

The modules are self-paced and take around 20-25 minutes each to complete. AUSTRAC recommends accessing the modules from a desktop computer for the best user experience.

These modules do not replace the AML/CTF risk awareness training that you are required to provide to your staff. However, you can use them to help meet this requirement.

AUSTRAC’s e-learning suite form part of our ongoing commitment to provide meaningful guidance and outreach activities across the broad span of reporting entities we regulate.
