Curriculum | Compliance School - Foundational


Course Catalog Advisory Board

The Foundational School is designed and delivered by today's most respected compliance practitioners and experts to offer a comprehensive educational experience in a dynamic setting. Throughout the courses, you will develop an essential technical understanding of major compliance issues, and lay the groundwork for developing and maintaining an effective compliance program.

The Fall 2020 Foundational School will be delivered virtually, offering a combination of live and on-demand classes over a two and a half week period. Live classes will be held on specific days each week. Students will have the opportunity to network and interact with school faculty and other students via the school community pages on ABA’s learning management system. All classes will be recorded for later viewing during the school session to accommodate busy schedules.

In order to receive a certificate of completion for the Foundational Compliance School, a student must complete all courses by November 6, 2020.
