Britannia Building Society has launched a new e-learning programme to help staff combat money laundering.
Under current law, financial institutions have a responsibility to ensure all staff are kept-up-date with any anti-laundering procedures.
Britannia has set-up an eight-module e-learning and assessment scheme to help meet these responsibilities.
The first six modules cover theory and teach staff how to correctly report incidents and assess the risks of laundering.
Module seven assesses the candidates and, if successful, they continue to the final stage where they have to make judgements on a fictitious case study.
The Vega-developed system also allows managers to review each learner's progress and see proof of their competence.
