Coordinated through Professional Testing (PTI).
A risk management professional is a partner who supports the organization to leverage the opportunities and uncertainties associated with its goals and objectives. Risk managers lead the development and implementation of risk management practices that enable the organization to make risk-effective decisions that create and sustain value.
The RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professional (RIMS-CRMP) is a credential that demonstrates achievement of risk management competencies, knowledge and commitment to quality. It represents the standard of education, experience and ethics that the discipline requires. Adding the RIMS-CRMP certification to your professional profile verifies that you have achieved the knowledge, education and experience necessary to successfully manage risk and create value for your organization.
Before scheduling a RIMS-CRMP exam, you must meet the prerequisites, apply, pay the designated fee, and receive an authorization-to-test email from RIMS-CRMP Certification Department. For more information, visit the RIMS-CRMP Certification website.
You may also contact RIMS at RIMS-CRMP@rims.org with questions.
