Canadian Risk Management (CRM) Program

The Canadian Risk Management (CRM) Program is designed for individuals whose jobs involve the management of risk and the implementation of strategies to mitigate risk.  

The Canadian Risk Management (CRM) designation is a widely recognized qualification that provides risk managers a foundation of knowledge and skills needed to identify, assess, monitor and limit risks. The CRM is recognized by the Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS) and awarded by the Global Risk Management Institute (GRMI). GRMI sets policy for the CRM designation and maintains the records of its credentialed members.

Attaining the CRM designation demonstrates a level of professional commitment, knowledge and skills that employers in both public and private sectors recognize. 

The CRM program is offered at Gardiner Centre in cooperation with the Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS). Courses are focused on the identification and assessment of exposures to loss, strategies for controlling identified losses, and a review of techniques for financing the payment of those losses which do occur.

Why earn the CRM Designation?

  • Competitiveness: Formal training gives CRM holders a competitive advantage that employers seek.
  • Credentials: Demonstrates that CRM holders have achieved the knowledge and skills necessary to identify, assess, monitor and limit risks.
  • Recognition: CRM holders stand out among others in a competitive marketplace.
  • Advancement: Improves the ability of CRM holders to achieve their organization's risk management objectives and their career goals.

The program will be of benefit to risk managers, insurance professionals, project managers, and individuals from a variety of industries who are interested in earning the CRM designation.
