Certified Risk Specialist (Insurance) – Online Course


This program is designed to offer best practice techniques in Risk Management. Through case studies and exercises, delegates will learn and develop the key skills required to identify critical risk elements in insurance. In addition, they will be exposed to the advanced methods for mitigating and managing such risks and how to use these within their working environment.

The course would be conducted over 4 days with each day having learning duration of 5-6 hours. The examination would be conducted on the following Monday after course completion.

Course Highlights

Personalized Learning Experience: To date, sharing knowledge has been mostly generic and not personalized to the specific needs of every individual and organization. This approach no longer generates the needed value and the desired outcomes. We fill that gap by personalizing and continuously improving your learning experience while meeting the changing needs of the financial services industry.

Learning Method: We believe that live stream meetings create a more personalized learning experience that focuses on real needs since it allows direct communication with the expert. Additionally, learning material in different formats may be provided throughout the class.

Final Exam: When you finish your meetings with the trainer, you will be notified by email to take the final exam. The format of the one-hour long exam is multiple choice and/or essay type questions, and the passing grade is 70 percent or above. In the unfortunate event of failing the exam, you have the option to retake it after a certain time period (approximately one month). The questions of the exam will differ from the initial exam.

Certification: All certified classes are listed in FINRA and are accredited from MENJE, the ministry of education of Luxembourg. When you complete all meetings and pass the final exam, you will be awarded a Certification of Achievement.

Course Requirements

Experience: A minimum of 3-years experience in the financial services industry
Education: An undergraduate or graduate degree in finance, economics, business, or law from an accredited university, college or school
