Launched by Maine Law in 2017, the Certificate in Compliance is designed to develop fundamental and transferable compliance skills for both experienced compliance professionals and for newcomers in this critically important field. Our innovative programming is enhanced by a partnership with the University of Maine Graduate and Professional Center and the Maine Regulatory Training and Ethics Center (MeRTEC).

This non-J.D. program begins with two courses that address foundational principles of compliance and enterprise risk management. These are followed by additional courses which focus on timely topics relevant to virtually all businesses and other organizations. The courses are designed to give participants hands-on experience in the various tasks expected of compliance professionals.

Register for 2021

The courses in the Certificate in Compliance Program are now delivered entirely in an asynchronous, online format.  Each course is available for a period of 16 days, and the courses run sequentially. Supplementing the asynchronous presentations, participants are invited to join periodic virtual sessions in order to get to know each other, discuss topics of common interest, and form a cohesiveness within their cohort.

 

Certificate Requirements

To earn the Certificate, participants must complete:

Both foundational courses:

    Introduction to Compliance: Foundational Principles

    Enterprise Risk Management.

And, at least three additional courses.

Participants may take individual courses without pursuing the Certificate. Participants who begin but do not complete the Certificate requirements this program year may complete their requirements in the immediately succeeding program year.

 

Cost and Registration

The cost to earn the Certificate is $3,000, and for each individual course is $600. Participants who have completed the five courses required to earn the Certificate may take any remaining courses in their program year at no additional cost. To register for the program, please visit: http://bit.ly/melaw-compliance.
