The latest enterprise risk management news from around the world

To allow risk professionals to formally demonstrate their expertise, professional achievement and qualifications, RIMS has launched the RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professional (RIMS-CRMP) certification.

“One of RIMS’ primary objectives is to provide the world’s risk management community with the resources and support they need to be valuable contributors to their organizations’ strategy setting and execution,” said RIMS President Rick Roberts. “The RIMS-CRMP is intended to boost practitioners’ professional standing and confirm their value to leadership.”

The Society will administer its first RIMS-CRMP exam on April 10th, 2016 in San Diego for RIMS members only. Those eligible for the RIMS-CRMP must either have a bachelor’s degree or a global equivalent in risk management and one year of full-time work experience in risk management, or a bachelor’s degree or global equivalent in a non-risk management related field and three years of full-time risk management employment. If the individual does not hold a bachelor’s degree or a global equivalent, they must have seven years of risk management experience. Possessing an Associate in Risk Management (ARM) and/or a Canadian Risk Management (CRM) designation accounts for two years of risk management experience.
