About Us

I recently undertook the training module, Online Investigation – Advanced Search Techniques, delivered by Tony Bennett. Not only was it very engaging, it was also concise and incredibly useable. Within a couple of hours I had utilised my new knowledge, with no need to reference my notes but also felt very happy that if a more in-depth search was required, I now had the skills to carry it out.

We have used Rob and the team at Expol to deliver AML training courses over the past couple of years. Recently, we found Bill Durrant’s AML Law Refresher course to be highly informative, engaging and interactive, with up-to-date real world case examples providing valuable context. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the training and would highly recommend Expol and the team!

“I can highly recommend taking part in the AML modules run by the imitable Bill Durrant. They are interactive, informative and give solid case studies and advice as to the variety of challenges faced by MLROs and Compliance officers, whether experienced or new to the role. However, what is just as important is they are very enjoyable as well”

“After working with Rob and the team to expand our knowledge for the last few years around different Financial Crime matters I’ve learned that I can trust them to deliver a knowledgeable and informative course every time. Expol are a great resource of knowledge and are highly recommended whether you need to broaden knowledge, implement best practices, provide with refresher sessions to keep up to industry standards or just fill gaps in understanding across teams, at all levels.”

“Given we operate in the regulated sector, it is important to provide our staff with the tools that enable the management of risk and good governance in support of our Island’s business future. Our preferred supplier, from the outset of this initiative, has been Expol and their selection is testament to their reputation and professionalism”.

“I took the Advanced Internet Investigations training from Expol with trainer Tony Bennett. I found the modules very interesting and informative and Tony an engaging and personable trainer. He provided tools that we could take away from the training with us and I have already found his training has made a difference in how I search for information. I would highly recommend the modules.”

“We engaged with Rob and Bill for the second year running to provide AML Training for our employees. We gave Rob and Bill a brief that was different to previous and turned out to be a new jurisdiction to them. The communication from the outset between Rob, Bill and our Company was swift and professional and they were also very accommodating for session times. The brief was met and delivered by Bill over Zoom, in a format that worked for our employees. To have people comment that they enjoyed their AML training is rare, but this was the case after Bill’s sessions.”

“We found Bill Durrant’s AML/CFT face to face training an ideal supplement to the online training available elsewhere. Bill has wide practical experience to draw upon to bring examples alive and he encourages active participation by our team. We’d have no hesitation in recommending Expol’s training in this vital area.”

“Tony’s course ‘An introduction to the Dark Web’ was a useful overview of the Dark Web, how to access it, the dangers of accessing it and how to stay out of trouble. I recommend this course for anyone interested in the fundamentals of accessing the dark web from any area of the business and those curious to see what it’s all about. Being able to ask questions allowed me to draw on Tony’s credentials and experience which adds extra value to the course.”

“We’ve worked with Expol for many years now as part of our pre-employment screening checks. The service has always been fast and reliable, and it’s helpful knowing that there’s someone local that we can contact if we have anything unusual to discuss. This means we can be confident that we’re managing risk for our clients and colleagues.”

For the third year now, we have engaged via EXPOL Mr Bill Durant to undertake AML training with my firm. Mr Durant is an ex Metropolitan Police Officer with a wealth of experience in Fraud. His style is very personable and his seminars are extremely informative and tailored to the specific needs of our Advocate’s practice. In addition, all the staff look forward to his annual training session and in particular the case studies he presents us with. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Mr Durant to any regulated manx business as his seminars represent very bespoke focused training in a very relaxed manner and moreover are tremendous value for money. May I also mention that EXPOL have also sourced an expert on CYBER security and I get the distinct impression that whatever difficult request we may have for them they will invariably come back with a solution. Looking forward to Mr Durant’s 2025 seminar.
