NSE Academy Limited (NAL), a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) has signed an agreement with The Risk and Insurance Management Society, Inc. (RIMS) to deliver a series of RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professional Certification (RIMS-CRMP) instructor-led virtual preparation courses for both aspiring students and seasoned executives. The RIMS-CRMP is the only accredited risk management certification in the world (American National Standards Institute – ANSI – under ISO/IEC 17024:2012). It tests individuals on their command of five risk management tenets: analysis of business models; ability to design organizational risk strategies; implementation of the risk process; development of organizational risk competency; and their ability to support decision-making.
In addition to the certification opportunities, NAL and RIMS will jointly deliver ‘Introduction to Cyber Risk and Data Security’ and ‘Risk Management Techniques’ self-learning online courses. NAL and RIMS also plan to deliver a series of Masterclasses (focused topical sessions) for risk management executives throughout the year. The partnership also aims to co-deliver multiple risk management focused training and educational series to equip the risk professionals with knowledge and build capabilities to deliver value to the profession.
Speaking on the occasion, RIMS CEO Ms. Mary Roth said: “From a global pandemic to a surge in technology dependence, organizations around the world have placed greater emphasis on building strong risk management capabilities to navigate these unpredictable disruptions. To address dynamic risks, education is the key. We are proud to work with NSE Academy to create opportunities for business leaders – and future business leaders – to support their organization’s growth, especially during the most challenging of times.”
“This educational partnership with NSE Academy will go a long way in delivering RIMS values and objectives in the region,” said RIMS Director – Global Development: South Asia Gopal Krishnan. “This will thereby help to elevate the risk management professional standards to better address the business realities and concerns faced by India Inc.,” he added.
Speaking on the occasion, NSE Academy Ltd. CEO Mr. Abhilash Misra said: “This collaboration with RIMS will add to NSE Academy’s integral role in developing competitive skillsets for professionals. By providing curated and insightful content to the NSE Knowledge Hub, RIMS will enable professionals to gain knowledge in risk management.”
