What is IRM accreditation?
The Institute of Risk Management seeks to work with other training providers to improve the range and quality of risk management training available in all markets. Accreditation is a process whereby the IRM formally endorses a training programme developed by another organisation or individual.
Accredited courses can be public courses or in-house, of any form or length and delivered anywhere in the world. They just need to be directly relevant to the training needs of risk managers or those needing training in risk management.
Why get accredited by IRM?
Accreditation brings the value of the IRM brand together with the training provider's own knowledge and skills to form an effective and competitive partnership for the delivery of risk management training.
The training provider will gain such benefits as:
- The training programme can be described as 'accredited by the IRM', giving the course more authority and distinction. Prospective delegates and their employers will know that the course, its learning objectives and content have been reviewed and approved by a respected professional body.
- Promotional and training material, and also certificates of attendance for delegates, can include the IRM logo and suitable wording relating to the accreditation.
- Accredited courses can (if appropriate) be advertised free of charge on the IRM website (and eventually within its training catalogue which is currently under development). IRM is consistently the leading non-sponsored site listed from a Google search on 'risk management training' or 'risk management courses' (March 2009).
