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. Attendees are able to sign up for the optional Certified Compliance & Ethics Professional (CCEP)® exam. The Academies are not a prep course for the exam. The Academies address methods for implementing and managing an effective compliance and ethics program based on the Seven Element Approach of the US Sentencing Guidelines. Courses are designed for participants who have a basic knowledge of compliance concepts and some professional experience in a compliance function.
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.
