Olo asked:

Please, is this a relevant entry level qualification for KYC/CDD or is there another CISI approved course for that? Thank you


Dear Olo, While the CISI Global Financial Compliance is the right entry-level qualification for compliance, you may also want to look at IGCA Certificate in KYC & CDD which is a more specific entry-level international qualification offered by LGCA.

Wesley asked:

What is the difference between the CISI risk in financial services and the CISI global compliance?

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
