To have a successful career in risk management, practitioners need a solid understanding of accounting procedures. In an effort to help risk managers learn these skills, RIMS has partnered with Accounting In An Hour, LLC to add a new course online titled "Accounting In An Hour."

TheĀ 60-minute course explains financial statements and shows participants how organizations make and lose money. It teaches participants how to interpret accounting terminology, read reports and take part in financial discussions within the organization. Participants can measure their progress with pre- and post-course quizzes, and earn a certificate after finishing the course. The course costs $35.95 and RIMS members receive a 10 percent discount.
