Financial risk analyst: Training

Training is on the job and depends on the employer. The following organisations offer relevant examinations leading to industry-recognised qualifications:

The GARP examination, combined with two years' experience, leads to certification as a financial risk manager (FRM). The programme, which is internationally recognised, reflects the changing role of the risk professional and is delivered in two stages:

  • Level 1 covers core areas of risk management, such as quantitative analysis, financial markets and fundamental risk management.
  • Level 2 covers specific topics on the practical implementation and execution of measurement and management of market, credit and operational risk, as well as a section covering current issues.

The IRM also offers an International Diploma in Risk Management. This course is at postgraduate level and covers risk management in a wider context, including areas outside financial risk. The course is undertaken part time through distance learning and takes three to five years to complete.
