Elevating Ethics & Compliance (E2C)

Elevating Ethics & Compliance

Content provided by the Ethics & Compliance Association (ECA), the membership community of ECI.

This comprehensive course, delivered online, in-house or in-person, provides in-depth, online and classroom-style training focused on developing leaders in our industry. This is not a program on fundamentals, it is a deep-dive into how to lead, evaluate and sustain high quality ethics and compliance programs. We would like you to think of it as the “next level” of your ethics and compliance education. You will complete the course with a better understanding of your role, or the role you aspire to, but you will also gain a distinguished list of colleagues equally committed to our industry.

Completion of E2C qualifies you to take the Leadership Professional in Ethics & Compliance (LPEC) certification examination and obtain the LPEC designation.
