    This was the most tremendous and fruitful experience
    OFFICIALLY, I’m a Certified Compliance Professional! Even though the past 5 days were heavy, it was the most tremendous and fruitful journeys which for sure was full of information and knowledge that I’m grateful to have. As usual, I attract attention by being the noisy one by interfering, asking, participating, and try as much as I can to be of added value. Thankfully we had such a great trainer Sam Gibbins, who bore my continues questions and jumps in. Those who don’t thank the people, don’t thank the lord so BIG THANK YOU Sam Gibbins for running such an amazing course. On the other hand, I also would like to thank Drena Latifi for her follow-ups and arrangements during the past 2 weeks and of course can’t forget the hidden soldier who facilitated this course and made us all feel comfortable just like home, the amazing Sally El Hagrassy, MSc, ICALS™. I’m leaving Dubai tomorrow with mixed feelings full of joy of becoming a #CCP and sadness as I still want to gain more knowledge, but I'm sure this will never be the last time with LEORON Institute so, tell we meet again, this was Asem.

    Thank you for exceeding my expectation and for an amazing journey
    Dear Drena, I really would like to thank you for the amazing journey I had. Usually, people get bored of attending 1-day training, however, I enjoyed each and every single second spent during the 5 days! The amount of knowledge Sam has is priceless, the way he led the class was friendly & most importantly he was ready to discuss and answer any question and assist in linking whatever we learn to our daily work. He provided guidance on how we can leverage the knowledge we gain to improve the quality of our tasks. No doubt, LEORON will always be my first recommendation to anyone who wants to step up in his career. Again, THANK YOU, for exceeding my expectations.

    The CCP program is an amazing course which takes you deep into the Compliance & AML world adding new knowledge even to the most experienced compliance officers. The CCP course is a remarkable experience which added a lot of new and updated information to my knowledge, specifically due to the rich material and the case studies discussed, in addition to the knowledge of the trainer who added life to the course by sharing live cases and his personal experience in the field. The CCP course is not a typical program but rather a wonderful 5 days full of intense knowledge and fun.

    The CCP training “course” was “off course” very valuable and enjoyable”: this was the feeling among all participants at the end of this course. Really, it helped me to be aware of the most updated international standards of AML, compliance and corporate governance and covered all points which will reflect positively on my professional performance. Many thanks to Leoron for organizing such excellent and valuable training course. -Kuwait
