More Information

With an increase in Irish and European legislation creating awareness across all organisations in relation to their legal risks and compliance and acknowledgment of the pressing need for diligent risk management, this diploma aims to provide comprehensive knowledge of the area of compliance and an introduction to risk management.

The course begins with an introduction to regulation from both an Irish and European perspective and provides an understanding of the role of compliance within an organisation, before discussing the effect of the relevant regulation and the role of the various regulatory bodies on the operation of the compliance function within an organisation.

There will be in-depth coverage of Anti-Money Laundering, Risk Management, Compliance and Governance. The course will also examine the impact of both civil and criminal liability for breach of regulatory obligation, corporate compliance together with defences and up-to-date case law in relation to risk, and compliance management failures.

This diploma will develop and reinforce skillsets allowing professionals or persons wishing to get in to the area to meet the required standards. Furthermore it will enhance skills, judgement and the ability to deal with practical issues in the management and practice of compliance or risk in any organisation.

The course runs over six months and is divided into seven modules:

Module 1: Introduction to the principles and practices of regulation in Ireland;
Module 2: The legal foundations of compliance;
Module 3: Regulatory compliance;
Module 4: The role of the Compliance Officer;
Module 5: Introduction to risk management;
Module 6: Anti-money laundering;
Module 7: Corporate governance & regulation.
