ACOI Education Programmes

The demand for competent Compliance professionals in the Irish financial services industry continues to grow. The Central Bank of Ireland requires Financial institutes to ensure their Compliance professional are fit and proper to perform their roles. The role of the Compliance professional within all financial services continues to grow in importance.

You must be a current member of the Association of Compliance Officers in Ireland, or become a member, to register for all programmes listed.


Programme Design – Relevance and Rigour

The programmes seek to balance practical skills and awareness of regulatory requirements with a solid understanding of the conceptual foundations of the compliance discipline. Completion of programmes provides a foundation for lifelong learning, and in addition to the Continuing Professional Development and Continuing Professional Education events offered, members are equipped to stay abreast of the dynamic field compliance practitioners encounter daily.
