First online examinations start in September


The Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) has announced that its European certification programme rimap is now live online, with the first online examinations starting in September.

Developed by FERMA and its 22 national associations, rimap provides independent confirmation of the professional competences, experience and standards of individual risk managers. Certification rests on four pillars: knowledge, experience, continuous professional development (CPD) and a code of ethics. These four pillars ensure that knowledge is joined to experience and professional ethics.

The European risk management association will remain responsible for the content and approval of the candidates. FERMA’s partner, an established supplier of online insurance and risk management education ANZIIF, is providing the platform and will schedule examinations online every month from September.

FERMA president Jo Willaert said: “We are very excited about this step and its value in the continuing development of the risk management profession in Europe. The process is easy and candidates have direct access to the materials to prepare for the exam. Some of our members’ countries will also organise a physical training programme for candidates.”
