||"ACH Risk Management" - This course is approved by NASBA (National Association of State Boards of Accountancy). Seminar attendees are eligible for 16.5 CPE credits upon completion of this workshop.
ACH risk management has become a focus of regulators in recent years and attaining a compliant status goes well beyond adherence to the ACH Rules. Every participant in the network except consumers bear some responsibility, with Originating Depository Financial Institutions (ODFIs) and their Originators and Third-Parties bearing the brunt of the liability. The introduction of new ACH Rules, increasing fraud using the ACH Network, and a greater focus on consumer protections make risk management more difficult every day.
This course will:
- Review ACH Rules related to risk management and fraud prevention
- Analyze other federal regulations, guidance and laws that impact ACH risk
- Increase an attendees ability to identify and manage ACH fraud
- Identify ACH audit and risk management essentials
Using real life case studies, attendees will put their knowledge to the test and determine appropriate courses of action during the workshop. Attendees, in small groups using different cases, will be given one piece of the issue at a time, much like real-life risk scenarios play out since we rarely have all the facts at the time we need to start making decisions. Each new fact will challenge participants to navigate potentially devastating scenarios.

I just wanted to drop you a quick message to thank you for sharing your expertise with us in the ACH Risk class. You made the material as interesting as you could and I very much appreciated it and enjoyed it. I learned a lot as did my team member TJ Torres who accompanied me to the training. We have a very similar sense of humor so I understood you and you kept the class very entertained.
Yours was one of the best classes that I have attended in quite a while. Many thanks to you, again, and I hope to take another one of your classes in the future.

San Diego Cabrillo National Monument
The first European to set foot in California was the Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, who stepped on shore near this spot in in 1542. He's the guy they made this statue to look like - and named the park after. We don't know if Cabrillo climbed all the way up to the top of this promontory or not, but people who make up here nowadays get some of the best views of San Diego, looking across the Bay and back toward downtown.
Sea Creatures at Birch Aquarium
Birch Aquarium is north of San Diego in La Jolla. It's not as big as some of the other aquariums in California or as flashy as the big sea-themed park down the road, but instead just right, filled with interesting exhibits and home to leafy sea dragons like the one above, creatures so improbably they look more like something from a children's book than from the ocean.
Legoland theme park takes its inspiration from Lego toys, those cute little bricks that snap together to build all kinds of fun things. It's one of several Legolands worldwide.
San Diego Zoo Safari Park
The San Diego Zoo's sister park offers a different kind of animal experience. Its name (Safari Park) is the clue and it indeed offers a more safari-like experience. Lots of large animals live in the same big, open areas here - predators kept away from prey, but otherwise much as they would in their natural habitat.
Coronado isn't really an island but a peninsula - a fact that doesn't get in the way of the name most people use for it. Whatever you call it, it's on a slender strip of land between the San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, barely a few blocks wide. What it lacks in size it makes up for in fun, with a beach that's been named among the best in the country, a classic hotel and a compact, lively little downtown. Coronado's laid-back temperament makes a nice break from the busier parts of San Diego across the water.
Originally built for temporary use during the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, Balboa Park boasts buildings beautiful enough to be considered attractions in themselves, especially if you're a photographer. They're surrounded by trees, lawns and fountains, but that's only the beginning.
Hoover Dam Supercar Tour
Drive four exotic cars on a thrilling round-trip guided road tour between the Las Vegas Strip and the Hoover Dam. During this supercar driving experience, you’ll get behind the wheel of four supercars. You'll discover for yourself what makes each so special.

From tasty appetizers and world-renowned entrees to signature cocktails and mouthwatering desserts, your taste buds will be tingling the entire time.
Vegas Indoor Skydiving
This is America’s first indoor skydiving built in 1982. Vegas Indoor Skydiving simulates the free fall aspect of skydiving without the use of an airplane or parachute. The experience is similar to skydiving with the addition of a mesh trampoline floor and foam padded walls.
National Atomic Testing Museum
The 10,000 square foot Atomic Testing Museum is one of the most popular museums in Las Vegas that is run by the Nevada Test Site Historical Foundation, and affiliated with the Smithsonian Institute. This museum is packed full of exhibits, movies, artifacts, and memorabilia relating to Nevada’s contributions to atomic energy research as well as providing a historical view of nuclear fusion and its impact on world politics.
Shark Reef Aquarium
Completed at a cost of nearly $60 million, the fully themed facility was designed with the idea of immersing the visitor into this underwater world in the desert. View a diverse cross-section of magnificent aquatic creatures, including 100 sharks, (15 species in all) along with exotic fish, reptiles and sea turtles.
The Mob Museum
The Mob Museum Las Vegas transforms one of the area’s most historic buildings and brings to life a fascinating chapter in the history of both the US and the city itself. It is an interactive Museum dedicated to the history of organized crime and law enforcement. The Museum presents a bold and authentic view of organized crime’s impact on Las Vegas history, as well as, its unique imprint on America and the world. If you are looking for something unique and off the strip in Las Vegas, the Mob Museum is it!
