Course awards are in the form of a certificate which you can download and print.
But they are so much more. We'll tell you about that in a minute.
First, let's explain why our award is such good value.
* Our award lasts for 12 months after you successfully complete an examination at the end of a course.
* Most of our courses give you 12 months unlimited access.
* You can take a course multiple times.
So if, for example, you sign up today and complete the course within the next few days, your award will be valid for a few days after your access expires.
But our area of activity, financial crime, is a fast-moving environment. What you learn today may have changed several times in that year. So you'll have been into the course several times for updates. If you take your examination again just before your course access expires, you'll have a year from that later date until your award expires. You don't pay to take the examination nor for the award certificate. So, effectively, you get two year's award for one year's course subscription.
Add in that the Course Credits are tied to the expiry of your award, not the expiry of your access, and you can see how easy it is to collect the Course Credits you need for your Certificate in Financial Crime Risk and Compliance - and to keep it once you have got it.
And, of course, your employer and regulator can see that you've kept your training up to date.
You can post a copy of your certificate on Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter. Also, you get a unique web address (a URL) that you can copy to post anywhere or send to anyone. That means that you can add the address to your C.V. and prospective employers can verify it.
And if you are part of a corporate scheme, your employer can add copies of certificates to bundles delivered to regulators to prove compliance with training requirements.
Of course, you can download and print your certificate or include a copy in an e-C.V.
Because of this, your certificates are verifiable.
That's important because there is a lot of "qualification fraud" and we want to make sure that your qualifications maintain their value and are not debased by others pretending to hold awards that they are not entitled to.
