One of the functions of the FIC is to inform the public and reporting entities of their obligations and measures that have been taken to detect, prevent and deter money laundering and financing of terrorism. To achieve this function the FIC holds seminars about Anti Money Laundering, Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) frameworks and an understanding of techniques used to launder funds.

Some of the Anti-Money laundering and Countering the financing of Terrorism awareness and training programmes conducted by the financial intelligence centre since the institution became operational in September 2013 are listed below.
