The business environment is more dynamic than ever. New risks never thought of before challenging the society and business at large, and therefore Risk Management is the need of the hour. My confidence in IRM Qualification has only increased with time since I was able to apply, utilise and test the knowledge in my professional endeavors. One of the great advantages of IRM qualifications is access to the IRM community and its strong global network and diverse International expertise.I still remember way back in 2005 being one of the exam candidates in New Delhi when there were only a handful of IRM members in India. I have transitioned from being a Student Member to an IRM Examiner.

The IRM qualifications are relevant as IRM keeps up with the changing times and offers relevant training and support to equip aspiring risk managers and organisations with a set of tools and perspective. My journey began with my first job at IDBI (a premier financial institution) in the project finance department which involved evaluating project loans for corporates. These decisions involved assessing the technical, economic, social, financial, legal aspects and the associated risks and mitigants. I passed the certification course, in June 2000. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to learn, unlearn, practice risk management in the multiple roles that I got to do. The IRM Community is a fairly global and robust network, ever willing to support as needed.

The IRM’s certification in ERM gave me an objective view of risks and opportunities, understanding of the tools, methodologies and thinking about the art of risk management. The course content is very exhaustive and there are plenty of resources provided to support the learning. The study material opened my mind to a broader spectrum of considerations to consider in managing business risks which ensures risk managers deliver value to their organization. It’s definitely one of the wisest investments I have made for my professional development and I would urge all risk professionals to consider it.

Pursuing the IRM qualifications was not only extremely rewarding but also eye opening. IRM’s qualifications bridge the gap, by introducing and bringing this ever growing, highly lucrative and most importantly very necessary skill into mainstream education. As a result of securing a rank at the Level 1 examination, not only have I received placement offers, but It has also played a pivotal role in enhancing my profile which has led me to receiving a scholarship and award at University. I am grateful for IRM to have opened multiple doors of opportunities for me and am looking forward to pursuing the next levels, and reaping the benefits!

Experience in preparing for the IRM exam was remarkable. The amount of knowledge I gained through the free study sessions was tremendous. As I am currently pursuing CA , studying enterprise risk management acted like a catalyst for me. The exam coach was very cooperative and explained everything with so much ease. I hope to opt for level 2 which will further enhance my abilities after clearing my Inter CA exams.

Economic downturn coupled with a pandemic crisis makes it very important for the enterprise to focus on business continuity and survival. IRM gives you a holistic approach by understanding enterprise risk overall. I’m glad to seek this qualification at such a time where the world around is so uncertain. IRM focuses more on practical approach rather than theoretical approach and I look forward to pursuing the next levels.

IRM has helped solidify my understanding of risk and how it affects a business. Current scenario, when risk management is so crucial and organizations are doing it just for the sake of compliance, I learned how to shift the risk culture of an organisation by making risk embedded decisions. I relished the study support sessions delivered by IRM experts in preparing for the IRM Level 1 exam.

I completed my level 1 examination in December 2020 alongside my undergraduate degree. Studying for the IRM’s level 1 has helped me develop my critical thinking and I can now apply the theories, frameworks and methodologies learnt to various situations.

I wanted to understand the nuances of financial risk management. I had done my MBA with finance specialisation and had gained experience within the Enterprise Risk Management domain. This looked like a good professional certification to pursue. While studying this course I could understand the timeline of how ERM evolved over time and how the nuances of risk management might change across the globe depending upon the particular International standard (or standards) a company benchmarks itself with. With respect to financial services, understanding major world events with detailed analysis presented as case studies was quite interesting and informative. IRM provides many resources to prepare for the exam. These resources are helpful for someone who has little to no experience in this domain. For people who have good experience in this domain, these resources are very well curated and one would enjoy reading them. Especially the two course books which IRM provides with the course material are quite good and they should be completed before picking up the study guides for respective modules.
