Anti-money laundering association opens new testing centre

The Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) and International College of the Cayman Islands (ICCI) have combined their efforts to expand testing for the Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist Certification.

The ACAMS has announced the expansion of a new Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) testing center at ICCI in Grand Cayman. The new testing site, in partnership with ICCI, will help facilitate earning the CAMS designation for those in Grand Cayman and the Caribbean.

“The CAMS certification is the internationally recognised gold standard certification for AML professionals, and the CAMS exam rigorously tests for the highest aptitude in the field. Our community spans the globe, and as such, it is the mission of ACAMS to provide the opportunity to validate the skills of our AML professionals, regardless of international boundaries,” said John Byrne, CAMS, ACAMS executive vice president.

“We have the facilities to host the site, such as the administrators and computers, and it is a great opportunity to host a site here on the island. Previously people had to go to Miami to get the test. I took the certified criterion test, along with one other person, so we can also certify the testers.” Said Scott Cummings, ICCI Dean of Instruction.

The CAMS Examination is offered in a computer based format at hundreds testing centers located around the world. To search other testing site locations, visit the ACAMS website at
