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.”

Notes to journalists
FERMA and its member associations launched the FERMA rimap Certification in October 2015. The first 18 successful candidates received their Certificates at the FERMA Seminar in Malta in September 2016. Since then, seven other candidates from Danish Risk Management association DARIM have qualified through a paper-based examination in Copenhagen on 25 January.
The exam is based on the Body of Knowledge developed by FERMA and its 22 members.
