RIMS Workshop



This workshop prepares risk professionals to earn the RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professional for Federal Government (RIMS-CRMP-FED) credential. Enterprise risk management continues to grow increasingly important in the federal government, and builds upon the Office of Management and Budget’s 2016 update of Circular No. A-123. Now more than ever, risk management knowledge is critical for federal professionals to provide value to their organizations. When you earn the RIMS-CRMP-FED, you’ll gain all the benefits of a RIMS-CRMP, plus recognition as a specialist in the public sector. *

The course will review the background and benefits of the credential as well as the core competencies of a risk professional. Case studies, hands-on exercises and an action planner are used throughout the workshop to prepare you to take the RIMS-CRMP-FED examination. The course also covers strategies for studying, test-taking and utilizing testing centers.




By attending this workshop participants will learn to:


  • Understand the benefits of obtaining the credential
  • Describe the competency domains of the RIMS-CRMP and the RIMS-CRMP-FED
  • Prepare to obtain the credential
