For project professionals looking to fill the risk management specialist role, hone their basic project management skills and showcase their specialized expertise to employers, the PMI-RMP credential is ideal.

The highly regarded Project Management Institute (PMI) is perhaps best known for its Project Management Professional (PMP) credential but PMI also offers the PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP) for governance, risk and compliance professionals. This certification recognizes individuals who have a combination of top-notch project management skills with the ability to identify and accurately assess project risk, and to also mitigate identified threats to organizations.

For organizations investing heavily in high stakes and highly expensive investment projects, the need for professionals with the optimal credentials will become ever more important. For professionals managing large scale, complex, and high budget projects, the PMI-RMP certification is a significant differentiator, especially when there are over 720,000 PMPs. For project managers in smaller organizations, the concepts and practices advocated by this Risk Management Professional training, will scale to small businesses and projects as you apply the framework of risk management.

Project Risk Management accounts for the unpredictable. It forces project professionals to acknowledge that things do not always go right and the need to have a plan in place for when projects start having snags. Developing the right plans also saves the project team from scrambling to figure out what to do when things go wrong; therefore having the right contingency planning is important. These risk management practices can bring large payoffs, but it is up to the project professionals to determine if the risks are acceptable. Can organizations take the potential financial hit that failure would cause? What happens if the project goes significantly over budget? Suppose a senior programmer is injured and cannot work? Are the projects able to stretch your deadlines or can you find a suitable stand-in quickly?

The PMI-RMP certification demonstrates skill and competence in this specialized area of project risk management. For project professionals looking to fill the risk management specialist role, hone their basic project management skills and showcase their specialized expertise to employers, the PMI-RMP credential is ideal. All PMI certifications are mutually exclusive, which means that professionals do not need to hold a Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification to become PMI-RMP Certified. Ready to take your career to the next level? Join PMO Advisory on site at their 3 day training course in risk management on October 10-12 in their offices in Northern New Jersey. For those wishing to join the Live Instructor Led Virtual Classroom with participants from around the world, PMO Advisory is also offering this PMI-RMP training course in November of 2016.
