Value of RMA Professional Certifications

The marketplace is increasingly searching for qualified professionals in risk and compliance management. Certified professionals enjoy industry recognition, have brighter job opportunities, secure the best jobs and earn higher pay. Organizations also need the assurance that their employees possess the right competences to effectively manage risks across the enterprise.

Our certifications are based on ISO 3100: 2009 Risk Management Principles & Guidelines, Basel Accords and the COSO framework and would, in no time, be globally recognized.

Using a comprehensive evaluation framework, all candidates would be evaluated by our Assessment Board composed of some of the recognized names in the practice of  risk management to ensure that holders of our certificates  truly deserve them, and would, at all times, comply fully with The Risk Management Academy Code of Conduct.

We offer world class risk management training that deliver value for optimal performance.

How our certifications benefit your institution:

  • Validate Competency—Professional certification from RMA ensures that your employees possess current, relevant skills, affording them deeper intuition into their field and a higher level of overall competence. With knowledge of recent trends, the latest regulations and new and developing options, your certified staff will quickly become your—and your customers’—”go to” people.

  • Show regulators you’re dedicated to keeping employees current—Industry leaders and regulators also recognize the commitment that professional certification represents.
