The Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) has announced the first six education bodies to receive accreditation for its professional certification rimap®. Accredited education programmes in risk management, certification examination and continuing professional development are the corner stones of this new rimap® professional recognition programme for risk managers in Europe developed by FERMA.
FERMA President Jo Willaert commented: “Education is one of the three priorities of my term as president. Having rimap® accredited education programmes is a building block in our long term initiative to place risk management firmly among the professions. I am delighted with the support we have received from the member associations who have worked closely with FERMA and the education bodies to achieve this first set of accreditations. Others will follow.”
The Chairman of the rimap® steering committee, FERMA board member Michel Dennery, added: “We believe we are at the beginning of a European network in risk management education. Beyond the need for increasing the skills and competences of risk managers, the FERMA rimap® initiative is now supported by the world of education.”
The six risk management programmes “rimap® accredited” are:
- Belgium : ICHEC Formation Continue – Diplôme en Risk Management, supported by BELRIM
- Finland : University of Tampere – “Master’s Degree Programme in Business Studies – Specialization in Insurance and Risk Management”, supported by FINNRIMA
- Italy : ANRA – ALP (ANRA Learning Path), developed by ANRA
- Malta : University of Malta – “Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) in Insurance and Risk Management (B.Com. (Hons)”, supported by MARM
- Poland : POLRISK – “Certyfikowany Zawodowy Menedżer Ryzyka – Certified Professional Risk Manager”, developed by POLRISK
- Sweden : Stockholm School of Economics Executive Education – “Risk Management Diploma”, supported by SWERMA

According to the latest survey by the Observatory Permanent on Risk Management in Italian SMEs by RiskGovernance-Politecnico di Milano, the situation is ambiguous: there has been a certain increase in the interest and knowledge concerning risk management issues, but application is still blocked by structural and cost-related constraints and is thus limited to financial aspects. This approach is accounted for by the economic crisis, which has turned out to be counter-productive for recovery and even for the survival of companies. Continue reading
