The Distance Learning System (DLS)

The ITMCFM has built up an extensive database of AML/CFT training materials over the years, developed and presented by leading international and Russian AML/CFT experts.

In 2020, the ITMCFM utilized this database to develop its own distance learning system (DLS) platform, structuring these materials into learning courses. The platform’s architecture allows for the creation of personalized learning tracks for each user based on their professional interests. The platform offers lecture transcripts, presentations, cases, assignments, test questions, and information resources on topics of the training courses.

These targeted courses are accessible 24 hours a day from any device with internet access, making it possible to provide beginner training as well as continuous learning for experienced AML/CFT professionals for core and expanded sets of skills.

To cater to a wider audience from various countries and regions, the ITMCFM is expanding the range of courses available on the platform while also increasing the content of the existing courses, and adding support for more foreign languages.
