Recognized in every major market, the FRM is the leading certification for risk managers. It is consistently in demand by nearly every major bank and firm in the world and is awarded only to professionals who demonstrate the knowledge and ability to anticipate, respond, and adapt to critical risk issues.
There’s never been a more crucial time to stand out. As the financial industry becomes increasingly competitive, the professionals who succeed are the ones who can demonstrate their ability to add value to an organization. Earning your FRM proves that your knowledge and skills are up to the latest international standards, and connects you to an elite network of expert risk professionals employed by the world’s leading institutions.
As one of the field’s leading designation, the FRM is a key indicator of a skilled and experienced candidate. FRM certification is awarded after a candidate has passed two rigorous multiple-choice exams (FRM Exam Part I and Part II) and demonstrated two years of relevant work experience. Candidates must take the FRM Exam Part I before taking Part II. Certified FRMs are strongly encouraged to earn 40 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) every two years to maintain the latest best practices in risk management.
To be a certified FRM, you need to understand credit and market risks and successfully pass the FRM exams (Part 1 and Part 2). This Exam Prep course will help students to prepare for Part 1 of the FRM exam. This prep course covers the Foundations of Risk Management, the tools used to assess financial risk, quantitative analysis, financial markets and products, and valuation and risk models. The exam consists of 100 equally weighted questions and students have four hours to complete the exam. Both parts of the FRM Exam are offered twice a year, in May and November.
Upon completing this course, students will have:
