On July 29, another FATF Standards course was completed in an online format. The course was organized by the FATF Training Institute (FATF TRAIN) together with the EAG Secretariat primarily for Russian-speaking Member States of the Eurasian group. The training was conducted by instructors from the FATF and the EAG Secretariat.
The course brought together practitioners from a wide variety of AML/CFT fields from the EAG Member States, ranging from FIUs and supervisory authorities to law enforcement agencies. During the course, the instructors shared the experience and best practices of the Global network on the implementation of the FATF Standards.
Despite the fact that the course was conducted remotely, it was highly appreciated by both participants and instructors. The course also demonstrated that virtual format of training courses could serve as an effective tool and engage participants in the learning process. Participants expressed an interest in taking this type of course in the future.
