Introduction to IRM Qualifications

IRM's qualifications have been developed by internationally recognised academics and industry practitioners.  They will provide you with the broad knowledge and the practical skills you need to manage risk.

Our International Certificates and Diploma give you the theory, tools and techniques to manage risk, maximise opportunities and protect your organisation.  You can learn from anywhere in the world via  this virtual learning environment, which includes directed self-study and online coaching.

Why study with the IRM?

As the world's leading professional body for Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) we have a global reputation for offering highly practical, academically rigorous qualifications to meet industry needs.

We respond to the latest challenges facing risk managers, including growing cyber threats and international regulatory developments.  This volatile environment has seen regulators, investors and businesses make increasing demands on organisations to demonstrate they have top-class risk management in place at an integrated, enterprise level.  Our focus is therefore on the importance of strategy, culture, behaviour and competence in relation to risk and on concepts like risk appetite, risk maturity and decision making.

    Moodle improvements

    by Sarah Owusu -

    Dear Students,

    As part of improving the resilience of our VLE, “Moodle” we are moving all our courses to a new dedicated server. In order to do this we need to take the system offline temporarily on Monday 26 July 2021. The system will be offline from 11.00 UK time for about 2 hours. It is recommended that you delete www.irmvle.org from your favourites / bookmarks etc. and retype www.irmvle.org when you want to access the system for the first time from 13.00 UK time. If you encounter any problems logging on please e mail time from 13.00 UK time. If you encounter any problems logging on please e mail irmvle@theirm.org.

    June 2021 Certificate exams

    by Student Team -

    Dear Students,


    We would like to reassure you that it is in the IRM’s interest to pass all candidates who  meet the required standard, we do not set out to fail you.


    We have a robust process in place for writing question items in order to avoid ambiguity. Each question is linked to a learning outcome and an essential reading from the module. Once the exams have taken place, we also review the performance of each question item and this process will help to highlight any potential issues with question items. Where this is identified, we take steps to ensure that candidates are not penalised or disadvantaged. Please be aware that examinations are still ongoing and several other students have not yet completed their exam and your actions may be disadvantaging them. Therefore you MUST refrain from discussing any content related to the exam as you may put yourself at risk of disqualification from the exam.


    We would also like to remind you that the VLE is not the appropriate channel to use to raise your concerns. If you have a concern, feedback or a complaint you wish to bring to our attention, then please contact us directly by emailing exams@theirm.org or studentqueries@theirm.org
