Compliance Officer Training Programme


Open for Registration 

Like many other Compliance Officers, I learned my trade on the job. Thrown in at the deep end with the Guide to Professional Conduct of Solicitors, the Law Society Practice notes and the phone number to Professional Ethics and Practice Advice.


I went on a couple of half day courses, which ran through the rules, but I didn’t feel equipped to process practical issues, and I didn’t have enough detail to be able to determine whether we had the right things in place to be compliant.

With Teal’s Compliance Officer Training Programme, I wanted to make sure there was enough detail to give new, and existing officers the confidence that they had not just an awareness of the rules and regulations, but also a practical framework within which to assess what you have in place.

With over 15 hours of content, practical exercises and an exam, you’ll have the confidence to know you have invested time in making sure you’re fully prepared or updated for the coming years and months.

I look forward to welcoming you onto our programme.

What to expect from the Programme

Each session on the course is delivered via a recorded webinar, which students can access for up to 6 months. The webinars are presented by one of our friendly team, and whilst they can be technical in terms of the law and regulation, we keep the focus on being practical.


Each session is accompanied by a workbook which includes

  • A copy of the slides

  • Exercises

  • Scenario based questions

  • Checklists

  • Further Recommended Reading


Together these workbooks will build into a bible for you.

As a result of feedback we have received from previous students, we have introduced an optional examination. Exams will be held once a quarter, and will consist of 36 multiple choice questions.

In order to receive your completion certification you will need to achieve a pass rate of 80%, so whilst not an easy to achieve standard, by reaching it you will have confidence you can apply the learning in the course to real life examples.

Students on the course will also receive free access to our Ask Teal Helpline services for 6 months.


The course costs £2,000.00 plus VAT.
