Whether you are just starting out on your career or considering how to make the most of your existing options, risk management offers you the chance to become a pivotal player in any organisation. Risk management is a key business discipline. It supports the requirements of corporate governance and adds significant value to any organisation's performance.

If you have advanced knowledge and experience in risk management, or if you are a project manager focused on project risk management, including large projects and/or complex environments, then the PMI-RMP® is an excellent choice for you.


PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP)


With a PMI certification behind your name, you can work in virtually any industry, anywhere in the world, and with any project management methodology.

PMI's Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP) ® credential is a solution to project management's increasing growth, complexity and diversity. Globally recognised and demanded, the PMI-RMP® fills the need for a specialist role in project risk management. It recognises your unique expertise and competency in assessing and identifying project risks, mitigating threats and capitalising on opportunities, while still possessing a core knowledge and practical application in all areas of project management.

This Risk Management Professional course has been designed to help you pass PMI's RMP certification exam.

Why should I do the PMI-RMP?

With your advanced skills in risk management, you perform a specialised function attuned to the needs of a project environment that is increasingly global, virtual and complex. The PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP)® highlights your ability to identify and assess project risks, mitigate threats and capitalize on opportunities. In this capacity, you enhance and protect the needs of your organisation.

Gaining distinction as a PMI-RMP® sets you apart from other professionals and brings credit to your organisation. Eighty-three percent of organisations that are high performers in project management practice risk management frequently while just 49 percent of low performers do so. The practice contributes to a handsome payoff: high performers meet their goals 2.5 times more often and waste 13 times less money than low performers, as found by our 2015 Pulse of the Profession® report.

If you’re ready for greater recognition, the PMI-RMP will validate your specialised expertise and help you stand out to employers, stakeholders and peers.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
