Training & Education

Risk Management Ltd offers a range of professional development and continuing professional development courses for risk and safety practitioners, managers and company officers. Some are updated versions of courses that have been run successfully for 12 years and others are new. There are no prerequisites. All our courses draw on international standards (including ISO31000: 2009 Risk management: principles and guidelines), best practice and academic research to help ensure course attendees take away a solid body of evidence-based knowledge. Most courses are offered publicly and all can be tailored for in-house training.

Some generic public courses are available through Bright*Star (keyword search risk). Safety-related courses may be available through branches of the New Zealand Institute of Safety Management. All courses can be run in-house and may then use a customised case study. Most are available in one-day versions and as briefing sessions for senior managers and directors. 

To help you focus on your training needs we've created a short survey, accessible here. Your answers will help us better understand your needs.

The following short courses are offered in 2016. Each course includes a realistic case study to help with professional development of risk practitioners and others tasked with risk management in organisations. The courses can be mixed and matched to suit the in-house needs of organisations. 

The courses draw on academic research but are practical in their approach. They do not form part of a tertiary qualification but they can all be used by professionals for continuing professional development. There are no pre-requisites for any of the courses. 

Contact us to enquire about forthcoming courses, the cost per person or the cost of an in-house course.
