FERMA European Risk Management Certification goes live online

The Federation of European Risk Management Associations announced that its European Certification programme is now live online. The first online examinations will start in September.

Says FERMA President Jo Willaert, “This is a major step forward in giving access to FERMA Certification to risk professionals throughout Europe. Application, registration, all educational materials and examinations are now open to any qualified risk professional through the internet.

FERMA Certification is the only European professional designation for risk managers. Developed by FERMA and its 22 national associations, it provides independent confirmation of the professional competences, experience and standards of individual risk managers. Certification rests on four pillars: knowledge, experience, continuous professional development (CPD) and a code of ethics. These four pillars ensure that knowledge is joined to experience and professional ethics.

FERMA will remain responsible for the content and approval of the candidates. FERMA’s partner, an established supplier of online insurance and risk management education ANZIIF, is providing the platform and will schedule examinations online every month from September.

Says Jo, “We are very excited about this step for Certification and its value in the continuing development of the risk management profession in Europe. The process is easy and candidates have direct access to the materials to prepare for the exam. Some of our members’ countries will also organise a physical training programme for candidates.

18 risk managers receive first rimap examination certification

The Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) this evening presented the first qualifications by examination in its professional programme rimap® to 18 risk managers during a ceremony at the FERMA Seminar now taking place in Malta.rimap_H-logo-certified-RGB

A total of 22 risk managers sat the two-hour examination earlier in the day. They were the first risk managers to qualify by examination.

Michel Dennery, chairman of the rimap® programme, presented the awards and congratulated the successful candidates. He said: “Delivering a first rimap examination in 2016 has been a key objective for FERMA that is now achieved. The first certified risk managers will be seen in the future as the pioneers in the new standard for the risk manager’s profession.

Rimap provides independent confirmation of the professional competences, experience and standards of individual risk managers, and accreditation for the risk management programmes of educational bodies. Certification rests on four pillars: knowledge, experience, continuous professional development (CPD) and a code of ethics.

The examination consisted of 100 questions based on the rimap Body of Knowledge. To prepare themselves for the examination, candidates were recommended to read the eight risk management documents that inspired the rimap examination questions, which are available online.

The questions have been written by a team of 7 European risk managers from 5 FERMA member associations. It has been a challenge to find consensus sometimes but it is also what makes rimap different and quite unique. It is a risk management examination designed by risk managers for risk managers, and for their company who want to rely on an effective risk management!” said Julia Graham, member of the rimap® steering committee and Knowledge team.

The examination is the latest of the milestones passed by rimap since it was launched in October 2015:

-Creation of the Body of Knowledge
-Accreditation of the first six education programmes
-Licensing of the first programmes for rimap CPD points

Isabel Martinez Torre-Enciso, vice-president of FERMA and member of the rimap® steering committee commented: “The next step is to refine the rimap examination on the basis of experience so that it reflects the complexity and diversity of the profession, and then to make the examination available for as many risk managers as possible”.

Note for journalists:  FERMA last year presented rimap certificates to 49 highly experienced risk managers who contributed to the creation of the rimap programme.

FERMA launches new strategic vision and mission statement

The Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) today unveiled a new strategic vision and mission statement on the occasion of its annual general assembly in Brussels. This new vision and mission statement are the result of a six month-long consultation process with FERMA member associations.

Jo Willaert, President of FERMA

Jo Willaert, President of FERMA

FERMA’s vision is of “a world where risk management is embedded in the business model and culture of organisations”. It is embodied in the new mission statement that aligns FERMA’s work with its goals of increasing leadership in risk management and enhancing risk managers’ strategic influence. To do this, FERMA will:

  • Represent and defend the interests of its member associations and their members to European institutions.
  • Create, collect and share knowledge, practices and innovative approaches amongst its member associations and their members.
  • Improve the recognition of and raise the profile of the profession.
  • Demonstrate the value that professional risk managers bring to organisations.
  • Take the lead with stakeholders who have an interest in risk management.
  • Represent European interests with risk management associations globally.

The President of FERMA, Jo Willaert, told the general assembly: “This new vision and mission statement provide a strong basis for the development of a business plan laying down the direction for FERMA over the next three years around three key drivers: leadership, communication and education.”

To support the launch of this strategic vision, FERMA has today published the first guide about its network of member national associations. This booklet highlights the distinctive role of the network and strengthens the image of FERMA and the associations.
