FCPA, Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Training
Online FCPA Training teaches employees how to spot and respond to bribery and corruption risks and prevent FCPA violations.
Staying complaint with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) is about more than just memorizing laws – just ask one of the many US companies that have paid tens or hundreds of millions in fines and settlements for violations of the FCPA.
Employees need to understand not just what the laws are, but why they matter and how to handle gray area situations they might encounter in real life that would lead to an FCPA violation.
Our innovative approach to Anti-Bribery Training and Anti-Corruption Training covers FCPA compliance in a format that keeps employees actively engaged in learning what behaviors and practices are acceptable and what is prohibited under the FCPA.
The course features interactive episodes with realistic workplace scenarios and assessment questions and challenges where learners can earn points.
Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)
The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) was enacted by the US Congress in 1977 after it was discovered that US companies were spending hundreds of millions of dollars each year to foreign governments and officials in what were most likely bribes. The FCPA was passed both to restore public confidence in the integrity of American businesses and to promote the stability of foreign governments. The FCPA is enforced by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
UK Bribery Act 2010
The UK Bribery Act 2010 has been described as the toughest anti-corruption legislation in the world. The Act prohibits bribery of any domestic or foreign official by UK companies and citizens wherever they are doing business. The Act’s prohibitions also apply to persons with close connections to the UK and, in some circumstances, to non-UK companies and individuals.
A new strict liability offense applies to companies that fail to prevent a bribe, where the only defense is a demonstration that the company had in place a robust anti-bribery and anti-corruption compliance program. The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) prosecutes high-level bribery and corruption cases under the Act.

Online FCPA Training Course Preview
Each year businesses and individuals pay an estimated $1.5 trillion in bribes. Such corruption weakens economic growth, undermines development, destabilizes governments, threatens democracy and provides opportunities for criminals, terrorists and traffickers. For these reasons, the US Securities and Exchange Commission and other governing bodies around the world, take bribery and corruption very seriously and have implemented strict laws with harsh penalties
Many different types of conduct are covered by bribery and corruption laws. Employees who are unaware of regulations or don’t recognize certain activities as improper may end up violating the law, which can result not only in social harms, but also in financial and reputational damage to organizations and fines and imprisonment for individuals.
To avoid these negative outcomes, it is important that your organization’s employees receive an FCPA training course that teaches them to identify and respond appropriately to corrupt activities, and motivates them to personally commit to behaving in an ethical manner.

Corporate Compliance and Ethics
Connecting employees to your core values.
Bribery and corruption have unseen impacts at unexpected scales. All employees should have the confidence to act against these practices to avoid violations and create a principled approach to business.
Realistic Workplace Scenarios
Staying clear of bribery and corruption might seem like common sense for most US workers, but based on the frequency and magnitude of FCPA compliance violations in the country, it’s easier to commit a non-compliant act than one might think.
To illustrate this, our FCPA training course features several depictions of real-life scenarios that can often lead an FCPA violation. Each scenario lets viewers “choose-your-own-ending,” playing out the different outcomes based on the viewer’s choice.
By being able to empathize with a worker that breaks an FCPA regulation, viewers are more likely to be able to recognize a situation as it comes up in their workplace, and be able to avoid a similar violation.
