Established since 2003 in Singapore, Asia Risk Management Institute (ARiMI) is the leading professional certification and education body for Enterprise Risk Management in Asia. We provide the business community with globally recognised certifications such as ARiMI-CERM™ and ARiMI-CPRM™, as well as corporate learning solutions based on the latest research, best practices, cutting-edge tools in Risk and Crisis Management.
Since 2004, ARiMI Alumni Network has been expanding fast with Certified Enterprise-wide Risk Managers (ARiMI-CERM™) and Certified Professional Risk Managers (ARiMI-CPRM™) who have driven the ERM implementation projects successfully, developed the Risk Management systems and people capabilities, and optimised the overall strategic and operational risks/return balance in their organisations. And over the years, they have also further advanced their careers in many industries around the region, including financial services, healthcare, oil & gas, petrochemical, banking, academia, government and consulting firms.
Most certification programs tend to focus their curriculum on very specific and narrow areas of the risk managment field, such as financial risk management, insurance and hazard risk management. They also tend to limit their coverage to one particular risk management framework like ISO 31000 or COSO that they will promote as the only better way to manage risk in organisations. On the contrary, at ARiMI we have adopted a much more holistic approach. First, our curriculum covers appropriately all the different kinds of risk that organisations face that goes beyond financial risks, insurable risks and the likes to include all kinds of relevant risk issues, such as strategic risks, operational risks, corporate governance, compliance, innovation, business ethics, reputation, human capital, crisis, business continuity and so on. Second, we are not limited to cover only one particular risk management framework. We explore all the risk management frameworks available in the marketplace, assessing their strengths and weaknesses, and guiding our participants to pick and choose the components they need to customise a framework that truly can meet the specific needs of their organisations.
Most certification programs available in the marketplace are based on a self-study approach. While this approach provides a certain level of flexibility and convenience to applicants, the essential downside is that self-study is only effective for acquiring simple theoretical and technical knowledge. It is however ineffective for developing complex technical knowledge and the all too important soft leadership, influencing and communcating skills necessary for Risk Managers to be able to do their jobs effectively. That’s the reason why ARiMI’s teaching approach is based on expert instructor-led and learning-by-doing approach, taking place in an engaging group context. At ARiMI, every ERM workshop is geared towards practical exercises and case studies, thus enabling our course participants to work in teams and individually to reinforce all that are being taught. One thing for sure, in ARiMI’s more engaging ‘classroom’, our participants – whether they are management consultants, academia, middle/top management, entrepreneurs or industry experts – have to roll up their sleeves to interact, participate and do, making learning come alive and ensuring the most effective learning results!
