Course Benefits

ICA Specialist Certificates are designed for anyone wanting focused yet accessible knowledge in specific risk areas. This course is suitable for those who work within anti money laundering who deal with art dealers, auction houses, and agents, and those within those professions who need the knowledge and skills to follow 5AMLD requirements.

The course is specifically designed to be detailed yet accessible. Prior subject matter knowledge will be useful, but is not essential.

To get the most from the course, a good standard of English is required.

In order to study any ICA qualification you need to be a member of the ICA. If you’re not currently a member of the ICA, student membership costing £121 will be added to your basket during the online checkout process.

The ICA has five different levels of individual membership. Whether you are just starting out in your career, already hold an ICA qualification or are an experienced practitioner, there is a level appropriate for you and this will be activated at the same time as your course commences.


At the end of the course you will be assessed by means of a one hour multiple choice exam that is taken online. This qualification is awarded in association with Alliance Manchester Business School, the University of Manchester and the course fee includes a printable certificate once you have completed the course.
