Trade Based Money Laundering

Course Description

Trade Based Money Laundering is the latest challenge in international money laundering law enforcement.

As the financial community becomes more experienced in recognising and preventing traditional money laundering methods, such as large cash deposits, criminals have explored other means to scrub their ill-gotten gains. International trade and trade instruments are often used as vehicles to launder criminal money.

Businesses involved in international trade need to be vigilant to ensure their trades are not compromised by criminal elements infiltrating their organisations.

Banks need to be aware of the risks to their reputation should their services be found to have facilitated the process of money-laundering.

The sheer volume and international nature of trade can create a cloak of complexity and lack of transparency that financial criminals seek to exploit. This course has been designed by subject matter experts to provide an overview of trade-based money laundering (TMBL) risks. It introduces the core principles and features of TBML and outlines the various methods and techniques used by criminals. It gives a clear explanation of various TBML typologies and supplies practical insights into how to identify money laundering red flags.

Who should do this training?

This course is suitable for

  • banking professionals, particularly client-facing employees,
  • as well as risk management analysts and AML compliance officers across banks and businesses that trade internationally.

Work Health & Safety

Course Description

“Every worker owes a duty to take reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves and others at the workplace”

The nation’s work health and safety obligations

Australia’s work health and safety laws have come a long way since commencing in 2012. Based on Victorian legislation, they have since been adopted by most states and territories. Western Australia has committed to applying the essential features of the harmonised laws to their own regime. This makes compliance training in these laws critical to understanding our work health and safety obligations nationwide.

Our Work Health and Safety (WHS) course applies to learners around Australia. It addresses the essential elements of the harmonised laws that all states and territories have in common, while also explaining where the Victorian and Western Australian laws differ.

The course covers all the duties and important things you and your staff need to know about the law – from a legal as well as from a practical perspective. It also places these duties and obligations in context by outlining who enforces the laws, and how.

Every worker has a duty of providing reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves and others in the workplace. They can also play a role in identifying, reducing or removing work health and safety risks. This course ensures that everyone can train in their relevant legal obligations wherever they are in the country.

NEW

We now have a new version of the course available: WHS in the Office, dealing with issues that are specific to an office environment. It explains in plain English the issues that employees need to know and understand from a legal as well as a practical perspective.

As always, we back it up with a large number of practical examples ranging from ergonomics to direct dangers to employees’ health.

Who should do this training?

This course provides all employees with critical safety training to prevent incidents, develop an appropriate workplace culture and minimise the risk of prosecutions and claims.

It is designed to cater for a diverse audience and all levels of staff. We therefore have generic modules aimed at all employees and some specific to senior management.

Course Outline

  • Module 1: Introduction to WHS
  • Module 2: Workers’ obligations and rights
  • Module 3: Duties of PCBUs
  • Module 4: Compliance and enforcement measures
  • Module 5: Duties of officers
  • Module 6: Other parties

Whistleblowing

Course Description

Would you feel confident speaking up if you encountered misconduct in your organisation?

Whistleblowing is the act of exposing misconduct or an improper state of affairs within an organisation. Research shows that businesses that receive and investigate whistleblower reports show a significant and lasting decline in misconduct incidents. But often employees are reluctant to report misconduct they notice at work because of fear that the organisation or another employee will take adverse action against them for speaking up.

Organisations must build trust with their employees (and other third parties) to encourage them to make reports. This means creating a workplace culture of whistleblowing, and having clear and dedicated systems in place to ensure whistleblowers are protected and aware of their rights.

This courses uses real-life examples and scenarios to guide individuals on what to do when a reportable situation arises, what to expect from the reporting process and what protection they can expect. Advanced modules cover how to institute a whistleblowing culture from the top down.

Who should do this training?

This course contains a general module suitable for employees at all levels and in all facets of your organisation, as well as module for managers on whistleblowing obligations at an organisational level.

Course Outline

  • Module 1: Introduction to whistleblowing
  • Module 2: Whistleblower protections (for managers and other senior employees)

Unconscious Bias

Course Description

Unconscious Bias – what’s in this course

Everyone has unconscious biases of one sort or another, which can affect the objectivity of our decision-making

Awareness, analysis, action

Unconscious biases cause us to unintentionally favour or disfavour certain people over others. Everyone has unconscious biases of one sort or another. That doesn’t make us bad people. But it does mean there’s often room for more objectivity in our decision-making.

Unconscious bias is most commonly raised in recruitment but it affects all areas of an organisation, including team selection, enforcement of codes and policies and day-to-day tasks, how meetings are run and who gets credit for a job well done. Learning to recognise and analyse your unconscious biases leads to fairer and more reasonable outcomes and helps to create an inclusive organisational culture.

This course uses realistic scenarios to illustrate some of the problems created when people’s biases go unexamined and offers you a range of practical techniques to help you evaluate whether a bias is  useful or not.

Who should do this training?

This course is suitable for employees at all levels and in all facets of your organisation, not just human resources staff.

We also cover Unconscious Bias in our Workplace Behaviours course – more information here

Course Outline

  • Module 1: Introduction to unconscious bias

The course then breaks down information about the international reach of the Act. It identifies the four bribery offences recognised by it – including the so-called ‘corporate offence’ under which organisations could be held accountable – and outlines who is at risk and what red flags to look out for.

Workplace Behaviours Compliance Training Course

Course Description

Workplace Behaviours – What’s in this course?

Changing workplace cultures by changing behaviours

The consequences of workplace bullying, discrimination and harassment have never been more widely known.

Bullying, discrimination and sexual harassment can harm individuals’ mental health and safety. They can lead to heavy costs for organisations, including reputational damage, compensation orders and high staff turnover.

What should you do if you see a colleague being bullied? Where does flirting stop and harassment begin? How do you prevent uncomfortable or unsafe situations from taking place?

Anyone can be a victim, perpetrator or bystander, and everyone has a role to play in creating a workplace culture where diversity is valued and individual dignity is respected.

This course provides tools for learners to recognise and prevent unacceptable behaviour, and outlines practical support for individuals who experience bullying, discrimination or sexual harassment.

Manager-specific modules focus on strategies and procedures for managing incidents.

The training also explores how becoming aware of our unconscious biases, developing our cultural competence and promoting accessibility can make our workplaces truly diverse and inclusive.

Who is this training for?

This course caters to the whole organisation, with specific modules for managers and supervisors on how to identify misconduct and address complaints.

The standard you walk past is the standard you accept.
