[USPRwire, Tue Mar 02 2010] Edcomm Bankerís Academy has recently launched a free tutorial that provides Anti Money Laundering (AML) training for banks and financial institutions located in Sierra Leone. Focus on Anti Money Laundering for Sierra Leone offers an overview of the AML laws and regulations that are specific to financial institutions in this West African country.

In July 2005, the President of Sierra Leone took steps to combat money laundering by passing the Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA). The AMLA incorporates set international standards, requiring Know Your Customer (KYC) procedures and identification, setting safe harbor provisions, mandating suspicious activity reporting and five-year record keeping. In addition to passing the AMLA, the Bank of Sierra Leone, Sierra Leoneís Central Bank, held a conference in 2008 with all local banks to establish guidelines for preventing and combating money laundering.

Focus on Anti Money Laundering, from Edcomm Bankerís Academy, teaches bank employees about AML laws in their country and familiarizes them with their companyís own policies and procedures. Through this interactive course, students learn everything they need to know to detect and prevent money laundering. Focus on Anti Money Laundering can be customized to meet the needs of every Bank, Credit Union or Money Services Business (MSB). Each course is regularly updated to include changing laws and policies. Recognizing that money laundering can occur anywhere and everywhere, Edcomm Bankerís Academy is prepared to create a course for any country in need.
