IRMSA Board Exam 2 - CRM PROF
Share |



Through the process of Professionalisation, IRMSA introduced qualifications as well as certification opportunities for its members and the risk management community at-large. Members can follow a professional career path by writing the IRMSA Board Exams in order to obtain the Certified Risk Management Practitioner (CRM Prac) and Certified Risk Management Professional (CRM Prof) designations.

Certification ensures that Risk Managers across the board have the necessary competence and knowledge required of them to appropriately execute their duties in their respective roles. There is also a Work Experience Logbook requirement that candidates need to submit to corroborate their ability to function and execute key components required of them at particular levels therefore demonstrating their work experience acquired.


What do Risk Management professionals gain from Certification?

  • Career development
  • Recognition of professional status
  • Credibility and competitive advantage
  • Cross-border opportunities 

Candidates interested in enrolling for the exam need to meet the following criteria:

  • Candidates to hold the Certified Risk Management Practitioner (CRM Prac) designation. If you do not hold the designation please, kindly note you can apply for exemption by clicking here to apply. 
  • Candidates are required to complete the Self Assessment Tool and must meet 100% of the outlined requirements before applying. 
  • In addition, candidates are required to meet one of the following criteria:
  • No Qualification + 15yrs risk management experience (Minimum of 5 years strategic Risk Management experience)
  • Any NQF 8 Qualification + 10yrs risk management experience (Minimum of 5 years strategic Risk Management experience)
  • NQF 8 Risk Qualification + 5yrs strategic Risk Management experience

You are encouraged to firstly, go through the work experience logbook to determine if you will be able to acquire, or have acquired exposure or requisite experience in the areas specified. Although you will have 2 years to complete the work experience logbook after the exam, IRMSA has observed that it’s more beneficial to obtain 100% of the experience required prior to attempting the board exam.
