MILWAUKEE (September 10, 2018) — Dozens of casinos of all sizes across the United States utilize JE University from Wipfli/JOSEPH EVE (Wipfli), a top 20 national accounting and consulting firm, for their Title 31 training. The firm has once again expanded its base of clients using the platform with the addition of Thunderbird Entertainment Center, Inc. (TEC) in Oklahoma.
As the latest tribal enterprise to join JE University, TEC and its employees at Thunderbird Casino Norman and Thunderbird Casino Shawnee will soon receive Title 31 mandated annual training through the university — helping increase its levels of compliance.
Director of Compliance at Thunderbird Casino Jeff Harjo says, “Our compliance department looks forward to working with JE University as we move into a progressive online process of testing our employees and remaining compliant with Title 31 and OFAC.”
“Title 31 anti-money laundering regulations are robust for a reason, because compliance with the regulations has been proven to disrupt other criminal activity. That’s why FinCEN regulators are so stringent with enforcement and non-compliance can result in costly fines,” says Wipfli Partner Grant Eve. “Our JE University training helps casinos guarantee training compliance with annual training and testing of all gaming staff.”
Thunderbird employees will experience training on all five JE University modules:
• Introduction to Title 31
• Suspicious Activity Reporting
• Currency Transaction Reporting
• Management & Compliance Team Training
• Filing of BSA Reports
Class II and Class III gaming enterprises across the U.S. can use JE University. Its automated platform allows casinos to provide consistency in training and ability to customize the look and feel of the training to the individual property.
Wipfli recently released an updated and more user-friendly version of JE University that provides clients with new content, customizable scenarios, adaptable branding to the platform and several other improvements.
