The designation maintains the highest standards of integrity in the field. Each person who passes the exam becomes a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS), a title that identifies him or her as an expert in the field. This credential is considered the gold standard in AML certifications by financial institutions and governments worldwide.
Preparing for the CAMS exam strengthens your core apacity for detecting and combating money laundering, enabling you to better protect your institution. The decision to pursue the credential is proof of your commitment to the profession. It keeps you on top of new developments in the field and shows regulators and examiners that you and your employer are serious about combating financial crime.
