LONDON, November 13 /PRNewswire/ -- It is a legal requirement that solicitors firms give all relevant staff training about their obligations under the law and how to recognise and report suspicious transactions.

Absolutely Training, a leading online e-learning provider, in conjunction with SmithSpiers, a multi sector anti financial crime consultancy, have launched a cost effective anti-money laundering course for solicitors operating in the UK.

Training has been designed to provide solicitors with an understanding of what money laundering and terrorist financing is and an understanding of their obligations under UK and other applicable laws and regulations.

Delivered via the internet, training can be completed at a time and place that suits the user. The use of real life examples and illustrations means that training is interactive and covers a range of practical situations.

Training can be offered as off-the-shelf or customised to meet a firm's specific Risk Based Approach and business situation.

"We are very excited to be combining SmithSpiers' market leading content with a stable, customisable online delivery platform like Absolutely Training's. The foundation courses which our partnership has produced should be a core element of a professional firm's risk based training programme. Using these products will help our clients demonstrate to the authorities that they have complied with the regulatory training requirements in an auditable and efficient manner." Mark Spiers, SmithSpiers Director.
