The Payments Association Regulations 101 – Online Training Course, March 2023
March 14 @ 10:00 am - March 15 @ 3:30 pm
This Regulations 101 training course will cover payments regulations and frameworks (e.g. SEPA, PSD2, IFR, Open Banking, AML and other financial crime related regulations) as well as privacy and security regulations and standards (e.g. GDPR, incl. SCHREMS II, PCI DSS and others), and their potential overlaps.
It will also give an appreciation of the various types of licenses and permissions (and the relevant regulatory bodies) that need to be obtained by the various players in the ecosystems. Where possible, it will also give an overview of relevant regulations outside of Europe.
Payments 101 (or similar experience) is a prerequisite, as payments fundamentals and terminology knowledge is assumed. We highly recommend attending our Payments 101 course beforehand if you don’t have enough relevant experience in the field of Regulation.
The course combines presenter-led sessions and thought-provoking videos. Drawing on real life examples, it weaves together the underpinning principles of legislation and other rules, with practical considerations.

- It was a very good course with a very good speaker with a lot of knowledge about the subject. I would definitely recommend this.
- Very informative and managed to neatly pull together the strands of the regulatory environment in a digestible way. I would recommend the course to compliance professionals or senior managers who need to understand the breadth of regulation that impacts the payments industry and their firm.
