New Online Business Training Library Available 11/17/2008

 

RIMS has made available a new library of online courses to help enhance risk practitioner business management and leadership skills. The 50-course collection, developed by Winchester Center for Management Development, a subsidiary of MindEdge, Inc., provides a collection of courses such as communications, finance, leadership, management and strategy, among others. Sessions include interactive exercises, case studies, assessments and focused readings. Completion of select courses earns participants a half continuing education unit for those who require annual or bi-annual continuing education hours and a program certification. Risk practitioners can enroll in the courses at any time in the convenience of their home or office. Fees for many of the courses range between $79 to $95 and can be completed in three to six hours.

"A successful career as a risk management professional requires continuous learning in many disciplines to enhance both technical and soft skills," says Janet Barnes, ARM, member of RIMS board of directors and risk manager for Snohomish County Public Utility District No.1. "MindEdge's online programs offer professionals an easy, convenient and affordable way to further develop the critical skills they need to become successful managers and leaders within their organizations."
