RIMS is Now Accepting Applications for First Online RIMS-CRMP Certification Exam

September 09, 2016

Exams Administered October 15 to December 15 for Prequalified Practitioners
NEW YORK (September 9, 2016) —RIMS is now accepting applications for the first online RIMS-Certified Risk Management Professional certification (RIMS-CRMP) exam. With its online accessibility, the recently launched certification now gives risk management professionals from around the world an opportunity to further demonstrate their knowledge and commitment to professional excellence. To apply for the exam or for more information, visit www.RIMS.org/certification.
Risk professionals interested in taking the online exam for RIMS-CRMP are encouraged to apply early as testing sites can fill up quickly. Eligible practitioners will be able to take the online exam at their convenience from October 15 through December 15. Additional test-taking windows will be available in 2017.
“One of the greatest challenges risk professionals face is being able to effectively demonstrate the value they bring to the organization,” said RIMS CEO Mary Roth. “The RIMS-CRMP certification allows practitioners to show leadership that they are dedicated to their craft, in-tune with the latest trends and best-practices and passionate about sustaining a strong risk management program within their organization.”
Those eligible for the RIMS-CRMP must either have a bachelor’s degree or a global equivalent in risk management and one year of full-time work experience in risk management, or a bachelor’s degree or global equivalent in a non-risk management related field and three years of full-time risk management employment. If the individual does not hold a bachelor’s degree or a global equivalent, they must have seven years of risk management experience. Possessing an Associate in Risk Management (ARM) and/or a Canadian Risk Management (CRM) designation accounts for two years of risk management experience.
In April 2016, RIMS administered the first RIMS-CRMP exam in-person. Ninety risk professionals now hold the RIMS-CRMP certification.  For a list of the first-class of RIMS-CRMP holders, visit www.rims.org/certification/Pages/RIMS-CRMP-Holders.aspx.
