WHAT ARE THE RMIA CERTIFICATIONS?
RMIA offers a comprehensive certification program for risk professionals of all education and skill levels.
The Certified Practising Risk Associate or CPRA™ (12 months+ experience in risk management)
The Certified Practising Risk Associate is designed for those with 1-3 years’ experience in risk management, the application of its principles and a working knowledge of the risk management framework.
Detail of new pathways for attaining the CPRA™ are available on the ‘New certifications 2015‘ page on our website.
The CPRA™ exam will be offered three times per year in Australian capital cities. A pre-requisite of the new CPRA™ exam is either attending RMIA’s 2 day Fundamentals of Managing Risk course or recognition of prior learning (by RMIA approved institutions).
The Certified Practising Risk Manager or CPRM® (5+ years’ experience in risk management)
CPRM® certification has been developed to meet the demand for qualified risk professionals with a depth of relevant experience. Organisations are placing greater reliance on having competent risk managers to guide the design and implementation of the risk management framework. A CPRM® is to have knowledge of how to integrate risk management into business processes and systems within an organisation. Further, they need to demonstrate the application of risk across a broad range of risk management fields, for example, governance, people, customers and markets, operations, supply/procurement etc.
It is not a CPRM® Competency requirement to develop and implement risk management enterprise-wide or for a portfolio of projects, though it would be advantageous if a CPRM® candidate had this experience.
The CPRM® exam will be offered three times per year in Australian
capital cities. A pre-requisite of the new CPRM® exam is either attending RMIA’s 2 day Enterprise Risk Management course or recognition of prior learning (by RMIA approved institutions).
The following CPRM® application must be completed and uploaded with a copy of your resume as part of the online application process.
