The Basic Compliance and Ethics Academy is a three-and-a-half-day intensive program focusing on subject areas at the heart of the compliance practice. The Academy addresses methods for implementing and managing compliance programs based on the Seven Element Approach. Courses are designed for participants who have a basic knowledge of compliance concepts and some professional experience in a compliance function. The Academy covers specific subject matter in depth and is a great preparation course for the optional CCEP exam or CCEP-I exam when attending one of our academies outside of the United States. (The course provides you with sufficient credits required to sit for the exam, but credits are just one aspect of applying for certification. Please visit www.compliancecertification.org to download a copy of the Candidate Handbook for complete information.)
Course materials are provided and include SCCE’s The Complete Compliance and Ethics Manual in digital/e-book format and SCCE’s training video for board members, Guidance for Engaging Your Board when attending an Academy within the US. When attending one of our International Academies (outside of the United States), you will receive a copy of International Compliance 101 instead of the training video for board members.
An integral feature of the SCCE Academy is the ability to meet industry peers. During the course of the Academy, SCCE will provide a networking event that will give participants the opportunity to meet with each other in an informal environment.
Academies typically sell out several weeks, if not months, in advance. Consequently, we encourage prospective attendees to enroll as early as possible.
