CONTROLS AND OPERATIONS
FUNCTIONAL AND GENERAL TRAINING

The MAS Academy offers a comprehensive suite of learning and development programmes, covering functional and general development courses. These programmes are designed to cater to the needs of officers at different levels of seniority and are reviewed regularly to ensure that the courses remain relevant in a changing environment.

The MAS Academy supports and collaborates with Peer Groups, which are communities of practice that conduct learning and sharing activities to keep abreast of developments and trends in specialist subject areas. Through the sharing and exchange of ideas, Peer Groups have helped MAS staff to develop deep technical knowledge and professional competence in many subject matters. For example, the AML/CFT Peer Group organised training sessions on the revised AML penalty framework and good practices in AML/CFT controls in private banking, trade finance and correspondent banking.
