Advanced, One-On-One NMTA Compliance Training


Calibrate Your BSA/AML Knowledge

These questions were originally developed for the One-On-One Training, but it occurred to me, if one knows the answers already, why sit through the training?
So, if you would like to sit for the test, just become an Individual NMTA Member [annual dues: $295]. NMTA Corporate Members may sit for the test at no additional charge.
You will receive all the answers in writing, to study in advance, and I will give you one hour of one-on-one test preparation over Skype, included. The tests contain the questions I think every compliance professional should know the answers to.
The test will be given orally, over Skype. Afterwards, I will also ask you to look up certain reference documents on the web, under observation. If you pass, you will receive an Achievement Certificate.
If you think you would like some tutoring before taking the test, please check out the One-On-One NMTA Training, and call me with any questions you may have.

Now here is that pop quiz for all you BSA/AML geeks:
