Economic Sanctions restrictions are changing rapidly and the enforcement landscape has never been more complex. ACI has developed regional ONE-DAY comprehensive sanctions boot camps in San Francisco this October, in Chicago this November, and Miami in January 2020.



ACI’s Regional Economic Sanctions Boot Camp, offered in 4 locations, provides training and the skills you need to understand the complex world of economic sanctions. Attending this program will provide the expertise to understand and manage the evolving sanctions arena to minimize future risks for your organization.
