On successful completion of PDC 1- PDC 4, you will be awarded the Professional Diploma in Compliance from UCD.
In addition, you will be entitled to apply for the designation ‘Licentiate of the Association of Compliance Officers in Ireland’ (LCOI) and use the designatory letters LCOI. Continued use of this designation is subject to meeting ACOI’s CPD requirements.
The LCOI designation satisfies the Central Bank of Ireland’s Minimum Competency Code for those who ‘adjudicate on any complaint communicated to a regulated firm by a consumer which relates to advice about a retail financial product provided to that consumer or the arranging of a retail financial product for that consumer’. Recipients of the ACOI’s LCOI designation are also recognised internationally as ICCP (Internationally Certified Compliance Professional).
