PRMIA’s PRM and Associate PRM Exams
The Professional Risk Manager (PRM™) designation is the global standard for the world’s top financial risk professionals. Endorsed by leading businesses and leading graduate programs, it counts candidates from more than any other program for risk managers. The exam tests a candidate’s knowledge and understanding of the key building blocks essential to being a successful financial risk manager.
The Associate PRM is designed to be mathematically and theoretically less detailed than the PRM covering the core concepts of risk management, allowing non-specialists to interpret risk management information and reports, make critical assessments, and evaluate the implications and the limitations of such results. Passing the Associate PRM exam will demonstrate the essential knowledge necessary to understand and manage risks in any corporate or economic environment. The Associate PRM is also now available in Chinese. Visit the PRMIA website to view exam details in Chinese.
