Due to the postponement of the 2020 FIBA AML Conference, FIBA alumni who are relying on the 2020 FIBA conference for credits will be granted an extension until October 31st to complete the recertification process.


Individuals who have attained a FIBA AMLCA or CPAML certification, hereafter referred to as Alumni, must demonstrate an ongoing professional commitment to the field of anti-money laundering compliance by satisfying the Recertification requirements every two years.


  • A total of 20 continuing education credits (1 hour per credit) must be accumulated within a two-year cycle.
  • Applicants will not be granted credits for activities completed prior to obtaining their FIBA or most recent Certification.
  • Additional credits earned past the required 20 will not roll over to the following cycle.
  • Continuing education (CE) programs do not require pre-approval by FIBA.
  • All programs must relate to one or more subject areas of AML.

Recertification Process

STEP 1: Earning CE Credits

To maintain an active status, Alumni must earn and report a total of 20 continuing education (CE) credits every two years. Credits can be earned through training, education and other professional development activities

STEP 2: Logging and Submitting CE Credits

As you earn credits during the two-year cycle, we recommend keeping a file of all documents and records associated with your certification, such as certificates of attendance and proofs of participation. Please refer the Deadlines table below to submit your credit documentation a minimum of 90 days before your due date. Each submission requires:

  • Name of the event
  • Provider
  • Proof of Attendance
  • Brief description of event and content
  • Date and duration

When you are ready to submit, you will need to log into your FIBA profile and complete a Credit Request submission. Please allow four to six weeks from the time FIBA receives your submission for review and approval.

You may periodically check the status of your credit request by logging into your profile, going into "Account + Settings," and then clicking on the "Certifications/Programs" tab in the "Professional Development" section. Please note that submissions received near the deadline (June 30) may take longer to review due to the higher volume of recertification applications received.

STEP 3: Payment

Alumni who successfully reach the 20 credit requirement are automatically issued an invoice for the recertification fee of $150 via email. You can view and pay your invoice at anytime from within your FIBA profile by clicking on "My Events" under your Quick Links.

Once FIBA payment is received and your recertification is approved, you can download and print a PDF version of your renewed certification from the FIBA portal.


The deadline for earning and submitting continuing education credits is June 30th of the year of your recertification.
