RIMS and the Institutes Announce Advanced ERM Course 4/20/2009


The American Institute for CPCU/Insurance Institute of America (the Institutes), through its Center for the Advancement of Risk Management Education (CARME), have joined RIMS to develop a new course titled “Enterprise-wide Risk Management (ERM): Developing and Implementing.” Designed for practitioners with strong risk management and business backgrounds, this new advanced ERM curriculum focuses on how to optimize risk-taking to meet strategic goals and the practical steps to develop and implement an ERM program. Enrollees who have earned the ARM will be able to take the Institutes’ exam to earn the ARM-E designation. RIMS will start offering the course in 2010.

Topics addressed in the ERM course include “ERM, Strategy, and Exposure Spaces; Integrating Risk Management and Organizational Strategy” and “ERM as a Project—Building the Business Case”. The intensive three-day course, conducted by RIMS, gives participants the opportunity to work with trained instructors and fellow practitioners to learn how to best implement ERM within their organizations.
