Benefits for you

Become confident in doing risk management work

The course is practical. We will be doing real risk management, both in group and individually, because the goal is that you should be able to come out of the course and actually do value adding risk management work independently.

Templates to give you a head start

The course includes useful templates for risk management. You can customize or learn from them and use in your company. This can give you a head start on risk management if your company is not up and running already in this field.

Course certification

Auditors will look for evidence that you are competent in risk management. You will have a nice-looking course certificate to bring up if you will get the question during an audit. Avoid the discussion with the auditor if you know risk management or not.

Get information from the source

The instructor is a member of JWG3 that authors the standard. If you are taking a risk management course, make sure you attend a course where the instructor has first hand information.


An extremely interesting course with lots of useful content that I will be able to use in my everyday work. I particularly liked the continuous evaluation aspect.

This was a really inspiring course, and I’ve learned loads of things that I’ll be able to use in my everyday work. I’m now confident that my risk management work will be quicker and more effective in the future.

A lively, interesting learning experience with a great mixture of high level and detail. I’m sure the course will improve our performance and save us time. Highly recommended!
