Course Description

All organisations, no matter whether private, government or not-for-profit have one thing in common – they all take risk to achieve their goals.

Unfortunately, too many organisations either don’t have any formal approach to considering the risks they are taking, or they utilise forms of risk management that are below par.

Risk is part of every business, from the COVID-19 pandemic to cyber threats to supply chain disruptions.

While some businesses tried to keep their doors open throughout the crisis, many were forced to close. Worldwide supply networks were broken, inflation shot through the roof in many nations, and a manpower crisis drove the drop even more. As economists had anticipated, risks were genuinely inescapable and would remain so for firms long after the pandemic had passed.

The risks facing organizations are real, and there is increasing demand for qualified and skilled risk professionals who can help improve organisational resilience in an ever-evolving risk landscape.

There are six modules in this advanced training certificate program that address the framework, principles, and components of enterprise risk management. It also covers risk management principles, such as risk identification, analysis, evaluation, and response. Ultimately, this certificate program will expand your current knowledge and provide a comprehensive understanding of these topics as you complete this course.
