IRM’s Richard Anderson unveils plans for a new vocational certificate

IRM chairman Richard Anderson today announced that the institute will be launching a vocational professional qualification scheme next summer.

Addressing delegates at the institute’s Risk Leaders Conference in London today, Anderson said: “We are launching a new professional certification scheme which will be aimed at not just existing IRM members but also anyone who is working in risk with the appropriate qualifications and the experience to demonstrate their professional standing.

“It will be positioned alongside similar schemes for engineers, for lawyers, for accountants and for many other professionals.”

He adds that the qualification intends to link into the European qualifications network and will help to build links with business schools and universities across the continent.
