Description of the course
This course focuses on training the supervisors of Qatar’s NPOs and Charities and those agencies that are tasked with implementing anti-money laundering/combating the financing of terrorism (AML/CFT) global standards in the sector, and creating a sustainable, world-class counter illicit finance (CIF) regime for the state of Qatar. This three-day training and education course is designed for senior level NPO and Charities supervisors and their staffs, who are key to maintaining the AML/CFT standards for Qatar’s NPOs and Charities and are responsible for ensuring that any entities meeting the internationally accepted definition of an NPO—whether they are formed in the State of Qatar or the Qatar Financial Center—are properly supervised. The course is also designed for agencies that provide support in implementing and enforcing the CIF regime in the NPO and Charities sector.
