Work Labs

We have developed the work labs to provide work experience in the compliance career. in the four phases of the compliance risk management process, i.e. compliance risk identification, measurement, management and monitoring. Classes are held virtually.  

Who will benefit from the work labs? 

Whether you are curious about compliance, need work experience in certain aspects of compliance, want to know more, or start a career in compliance, these labs are tailored for you. It also provides an opportunity for compliance managers who want to support their employees' personal development. These work labs provide a working understanding and practical application of the HOW TO of compliance. 

To derive greater value from the work labs, it is important to you put your learning to practice in your work environment! 

If your work exposure does not allow you to practice what you have learnt directly, then create opportunities to get involved in those areas of business or get involved in a mentorship program or internship opportunity to gain the practical experience and apply what you have learnt.
