Society Expands RIMS-CRMP Opportunities Globally
NEW YORK (May 22, 2018) — The opportunity for risk professionals around the world to attain a RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professionals certification (RIMS-CRMP)​ has become easier with three universities – in three different countries – ready to offer the certification’s first prep course.
Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, University of Toronto and Yeshiva University in New York have entered into a relationship with the Society to develop a RIMS-CRMP prep course. While the course is currently available to students at Nanyang Technological University, the University of Toronto and Yeshiva University plan to open registration in September 2018. Information about the universities’ individual prep courses can be found at

“The RIMS-CRMP offers undeniable opportunities for risk professionals to showcase their industry knowledge and commitment to professional development,” said RIMS CEO Mary Roth. “The Society is proud to work with these universities, to support them through the development and implementation processes and to continue to provide the world’s risk management community with advantages to excel professionally.”
With RIMS support, the universities’ courses will align with the five domains tested on the RIMS-CRMP exam. Those domains include:
1. Analyzing the Business Model
2. Designing Organizational Risk Strategies
3. Implementing the Risk Process
4. Developing Organizational Risk Competency
5. Supporting Decision Making
The RIMS-CRMP certification is the only risk management certification in the world to hold accredited status. It received official accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) under ISO/IEC 17024:2012 in late-2017. The ANSI Accreditation of RIMS-CRMP signifies that the Institute recognizes the competence of RIMS to carry out certification activities in accordance with requirements defined in International Standards and confirms approval by government and peer review assessments.
RIMS has developed opportunities to prep interested risk professionals for the RIMS-CRMP exam. RIMS in-person RIMS-CRMP prep workshops will be held in Montreal on October 31st and November 1st, and in New York on November 13th and 14th. The course is also available online.
