ARLINGTON, VA, April 17, 2017 - The Ethics and Compliance Initiative (ECI), America's oldest ethics research and membership association announced the selection of GEC to provide faculty for its recently updated leadership training for compliance professionals. "We are thrilled to have the addition of Andrea and Jacquie help lead our Elevating Ethics and Compliance (E2C) courses," said Pat Harned ECI's CEO. "They both bring a depth of experience in the ethics & compliance industry, and learners will benefit from their knowledge and expertise."

ECI's E2C courseware is highly interactive, allowing for case studies and situational learning. The courses and topics are based foundationally on ECI's research and the experience of compliance experts. In 2016, ECI published a blue-ribbon panel report on High Quality Programs (HQP) for ethics and compliance. The E2C courseware is guided by the HQP five principles, and isn't "book learning." Each E2C session introduces real world ethics and compliance issues based on current risk predictions and the situations our members, faculty and experts have experienced.

Following the course work, learners will be well prepared to become LPEC certified. By taking and passing the certification exam, these individuals will earn the distinction of Leadership Professional in Ethics & Compliance, exemplifying their professionalism and skills to lead our industry.
