New “Boot Camp” programs to offer short courses in Manhattan on key current regulatory issues

New York, July 1, 2013 — The Center for Global Governance, Reporting and Regulation at Pace University and the Association of International Bank Auditors announce a new fourth cycle of the Certified Compliance and Regulatory Professional (CCRP®) certificate program.

The new session begins September 5, 2013, and continues to March 6, 2014. Classes will be held at Pace University’s Midtown Center in the historic Fred French Building.

Recognized as the ‘standard’ for training and development courses by bank executives and regulators, the CCRP® program offers a 26-week session with intense and in-depth exposure to all aspects of governance, risk management, regulatory strategy, and relevant regulations taught by industry professionals.

Sessions include detailed discussions of current compliance and regulatory issues, and examinations of real life case studies. Team presentations provide experience in applying coursework to actual business problems.

In addition, new “Boot Camp” programs will be offered by AIBA and Pace, with short (one or two-day) courses covering key current regulatory issues like Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), and the new Dodd-Frank regulations impacting trading and non-bank operations.

The CCRP® certification is designed for regulatory compliance professionals, auditors, attorneys, consultants, regulators, risk managers, hedge fund managers, and broker-dealers.

”Our program participation has grown from the first cycle focusing primarily on regulation and compliance impacting global banks to include major U.S. banks, asset managers, hedge funds, lawyers and other professionals seeking an in-depth program on U.S. and global compliance issues,” says John Alan James, executive director of the Pace Center.

The CCRP® at Pace provides growth opportunities and positions global financial services professionals as leaders in the compliance community, giving them an edge in a very competitive job market. The program has been designed with the rigorous content demanded by an academic agenda while stressing the important practical dimensions of real-world experience in the compliance field. Professors from Pace University, all with distinguished prior careers in the private sector, created the syllabus alongside veteran compliance professionals from some of the world’s leading international banks.

Guest speakers drawn from prestigious New York law firms, Big Four Accounting firms, and the bank regulatory community will complement the joint Pace-AIBA team.
