The Risk Assessment Certificate was designed to help participants build their skills to match the level of risk assessment in industry today.“This helps you advance not only your career, but gives your organization confidence in your ability to help analyze the risks it is evaluating right now and into the future. Workshops are built in throughout, and a final project calibrates your learning to the current industry standard.”
