Can someone give me some insight on the CAMS prep process and exam? Time frame, rigor etc?

The ACAMs study guide should be sufficient enough. If you want extra practice, aml-expert.com website gives you a free practice exam as well. Only thing to look out for is that some of the answers are not 100% correct. Prep time varies by the person but it took me around 2 months while working full time. If you go through the study guide enough times the exam itself isn’t really that difficult.

EY just did a 1.5 day in person class and then took the exam the next day. If you’ve done any mind numbing AML job at a banking client you’ll be golden

EY1 What group sponsored the class, where was it held, do they still offer it?

I pretty much used the study guide to pass the exam - all the questions and topics are in it. I spent about 3 months on and off (between case work) studying for it and passed on my first try. Definitely helps if you have AML and/or OFAC experience since a lot of questions are scenario - based and best practices.

Hello fellow HR pros! I really need your opinions on HR certifications. I am deciding between PHR and SHRM-cp. I have read just about all there is online comparing the two and can not decide.

I work for a 350~ company who is growing rapidly through M&A. Passions/interests are compliance, strategic vision, M&A, branding and culture

Anyone hiring those who have been out of work for a year? I took time off to tend to personal matters, but I am now looking to get back into the workforce again.

I don’t mind audit. However, I’d prefer it not to be at a B4, as I am looking for some semblance of a work life balance.

DM me if you have something above, thanks.
