Risk Management

Successfully Manage Risk in the Federal Arena

Federal professionals can add value to their organization by earning the Risk Management Society’s Certified Risk Management Professional for Federal Government (RIMS-CRMP-FED) credential.

The credential verifies to all employers and partners you work with that you have achieved the level of expertise, education, and experience required to successfully manage risk and support decision-making in the federal government environment.

As enterprise risk management (ERM) — a strategy to identify and prepare for hazards with a company’s finances, operations, and objectives — continues to grow in importance in the federal government and builds upon the Office of Management and Budget’s 2016 update of Circular No. A-123, this skillset is essential.
