A certain amount of risk taking is inevitable if an organisation is both to achieve objectives and exploit opportunities effectively. The adoption of well managed risk taking is likely to lead to sustainable improvements in service improvement and business growth.

The Framework will allow organizations to perceive potential problems before they either arise or become a threat to achievement.

This course is aimed at individuals who have already undertaken and passed the Management of Risk Foundation Exam based on the 2010 version of the “Management of Risk, Guidance for Practitioners”. Individuals who have undertaken the Foundation Exam based on earlier versions of the guidance are advised to update their knowledge prior to attending this course, as there have been significant changes to the guidance. This course leads to the Registered Practitioner qualification via a 3 hour objective test examination, which takes place during the morning of the second day.
