The Diploma in Fintech Risk and Compliance is a level 7 qualification on the National Framework of Qualifications, offered by ACOI’s education provider PAT (Professional Accountancy Training) and awarded by TU Dublin.
The programme is designed to address industry-wide challenges by providing professional training in Fintech Risk and Compliance.
Compliance is core to the provision of regulated financial services and the risk management of those services, and therefore the compliance professional is at the centre of the financial services industry. Given the evolution of technologically driven innovation in finance, these professionals require education and training to adapt to the evolving nature of the compliance framework, and associated risk management, in Fintech focused operating models.
Designed with compliance practitioners this programme delivers the core knowledge, skills, and competencies that professionals require to work in both a Fintech environment, and an increasingly digitised compliance function.
The programme addresses the demands of current compliance and regulatory professionals, of varying levels of experience and seniority, and offers the opportunity to a wide variety of candidates to reskill/retrain for careers in the financial services industry. The programme provides the training students require to begin, to continue and to enhance their career paths as a compliance and regulatory professional.
The programme will be delivered part-time over one academic year in an on-line environment. The academic year is divided into two semesters, commencing September – December and January – May each year.
