FERMA launches pan-European risk management certification project
The Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) has launched an ambitious project to consider the creation of a pan-European certificate of professional competence for risk managers. A working group led by three FERMA board members, Vice Presidents Michel Dennery and Julia Graham, and Igor Mikhaylov, is now developing a plan for presentation to the 2012 FERMA Seminar in Versailles on 22-23 October.
FERMA intends that the certificate will provide independent confirmation that the holder has a high level of knowledge and experience in risk management that has been challenging to achieve. The aim is to put risk management on a similar standing to other professions such as law and accounting.
The working group plans to involve FERMA’s national member associations and other education providers in the creation of two types of certificate:
- professional and
The professional certification would be experience-based and include evidence of the risk manager’s previous professional development and education. Specialist certification would involve formal education and examination by accredited organisations.
The professional certificate is intended for risk managers already working at senior level, while the specialist certificate would be for risk managers who are at an earlier stage in their careers or individuals who have risk management as part of a wider role.
Enthusiastically welcoming the plan, FERMA President Jorge Luzzi said: “FERMA has had many requests for a programme like this. We have received great support from our member associations, and we are confident that this will be one of the most important projects that FERMA has ever been involved in. The working group, elected from our board members, is approaching it very seriously and with a lot of energy and enthusiasm.
