RIMS-CRMP Certification Secures Reaccreditation by the American National Standards Institute

Approval Allows RIMS to Continue to Offer the World’s Only Accredited Risk Management Certification

December 12, 2022

NEW YORK (December 12, 2022) RIMS, the risk management society®, has successfully met all ANSI (American National Standards Institute) requirements to uphold the RIMS Certified Risk Management Professional certification’s (RIMS-CRMP) accreditation. Reaccredited for a five-year term expiring in 2027, the ANSI validation reaffirms the RIMS-CRMP as the only accredited risk management credential in the world.  

Developed by risk professionals, for risk professionals, the RIMS-CRMP certification’s accreditation by ANSI under ISO/IEC 17024:2012 signifies that the Institute recognizes the competence of RIMS to carry out certification activities in accordance with requirements defined in the International Standard.

“The RIMS-CRMP certification empowers risk professionals around the world to further demonstrate their command of dynamic risk management strategies that strengthen resiliency, support innovation and improve business decision-making.” said RIMS CEO Gary A. LaBranche, FASAE, CAE. “Creating professional development opportunities is central to RIMS mission and the RIMS-CRMP certification is one of the many valuable advantages the Society offers to help the global risk community elevate their skills and careers.”

Unlike insurance focused professional credentials, the RIMS-CRMP tests qualifying risk professionals on the following five domains:

1. Analyzing the Organizational Model

2. Designing Organizational Risk Strategies

3. Implementing the Risk Process

4. Developing Organizational Risk Competency

5. Supporting Decision Making

Risk professionals interested in earning their RIMS-CRMP certification must meet the eligibility requirements; apply online; schedule their exam at a testing center or online at www.PearsonVUE.com/RIMS; and receive a passing mark. RIMS offers optional preparatory workshops for the RIMS-CRMP exam. A list of those workshops is available here.
