Who is Course aimed at?
Designed exclusively for those schools taking proactive steps towards formalizing the role of a department ‘Risk Manager’ or Chair of the Risk Management Committee, the course is aimed at the professional staff member who has been (or will be) asked to assume this role, on a full- or part-time basis.
The primary goal of the course is to provide the Risk Manager with the tools and leadership skills needed to successfully lead and champion risk management within their department.

Focusing on teaching the skills needed to develop, coordinate and lead a comprehensive risk management plan for the department, the course will also train participants on how to position themselves as the Risk Manager – both internally within the department and externally within the University setting.
