About the course

Why should you take this training course?

Risks can come from a variety of sources and take many forms. Almost every strategic decision made within an organisation is accompanied by risks that the organisation must recognize and address. Because there is virtually no growth without taking risks, risk management should be an integral part of every organisation’s processes.

The ISO 31000 Risk Manager training course provides participants with the knowledge and skills needed to implement ISO 31000 risk management guidelines in an organisation. It discusses risk management principles and their application, as well as the core elements of the risk management framework and risk management process steps. Furthermore, it covers the fundamental approaches, methods, and practices for assessing risk in a variety of situations.
