Integral to the Risk Framework™ is our curriculum of fundamental and advanced education courses. QRM seeks to empower clients by keeping them well-versed in current risk practice methodologies and analytical models. The education curriculum offers a direct transfer of our knowledge and experience, making clients experts in the field.
Education courses are conducted at QRM's Chicago headquarters in our state-of-the-art education center, as well as in our London and Singapore offices. Additional courses are also offered regularly in each region, and at client sites (by request) via the web.
We are constantly evaluating, expanding, and reworking our education courses and syllabi in response to client feedback and the necessities of the market.
The Fundamentals of Risk Practice Engineering
The Fundamentals of Risk Practice Reengineering course is designed to familiarize all new clients with the basic but essential philosophies and processes of the Risk Framework™.
