Prevention of
money laundering.

Although banks and other financial services providers run an elevated risk of falling victim to money laundering, companies of every size need to be aware of the potential hazards and the reputational cost they carry if they go unnoticed. Employees’ ability to spot the warning signs of money laundering and act appropriately is critical, especially for companies outside the financial sector who may be less aware of the risks. To help achieve this, Sponge’s modular learning programme is designed to transform working habits, create strong behaviours and protect your organisation from money-laundering practices.

Protect your organisation.

Authoritative content.

Created by leading authorities in money laundering prevention, alongside Sponge's learning science experts, our programme is designed to drive behavioural change – not just impart academic knowledge.

Customised to your needs.

Build a tailored programme through our Mix & Match modules and target specific knowledge gaps - or go fully bespoke.

Easy, fast deployment.

Seamless deployment through your existing LMS, or delivered with Sponge’s dedicated LMS solution.

In your language.

With ready-made options in English, German and French, and the capability to serve a wide range of other languages.

What our ready-made
programme offers.

Every organisation has different learning requirements and gaps in understanding that need to be filled. With our special Mix & Match system, your learning manager can work with our experts to identify the training modules employees need and the lesson type that suits them best – from text and images to video, animations and simulations.

Our programme gives your employees an easy-to-understand overview of money laundering prevention in short, self-contained lessons using interactive and target-group-oriented practical cases. Topics include current money laundering methods, suspicious transactions and terrorist financing. Modules include:

  • Welcome.

  • Laws and guidelines at a glance.
  • Terrorist financing prevention.
  • Due diligence: Know your customer.
  • PEP – Politically Exposed Persons.
  • Beneficial owner.
