5 Days

This five-day course provides delegates with a thorough understanding of the Management of Risk (M_o_R) methodology. During the course, we introduce the Principles, Approach, Process, and Embedding & Reviewing M_o_R which form the core concepts of M_o_R. We will also explain how M_o_R is important throughout the organisation, from Strategic, Programme, Project, and Operational perspectives.

Throughout the course, our M_o_R experts help delegates understand the benefits of adopting the M_o_R methodology.

Prior to the course, delegates will receive QA's pre-course reading to help them prepare adequately. All relevant course materials are provided, including the core textbook 'Management of Risk: Guidance for Practitioners'. This course prepares learners for both the M_o_R Foundation examination and the M_o_R Practitioner examination, which learners will book independently and take outside of their QA course, using a voucher provided by QA.

No prerequisites are necessary for attendance, although delegates will be expected to have some experience of working in an operational or programme project environment prior to attending the M_o_R Foundation and Practitioner course.

Pre-Course Reading

Delegates will be provided with QA's pre-course reading prior to attending the course to help them prepare for the course. The pre-course reading is expected to take approximately 10 hours to complete. Success on the course will be enhanced by close attention to the pre-reading material.
