Associate Risk Management Professional (ARMP)

Apply for Certification

The Associate Risk Management Professional certification is for those who are new to risk management.
ARMP certification supports entry-level proficiency with knowledge in risk management. It is designed for those who have not yet acquired a great deal of experience in the field. Starting your career path in risk management through ARMP certification demonstrates to your peers, colleagues and management that professionalism within the industry is your goal.

The Certification Process

The ARMP certification is for individuals with less than two years of risk management experience, completed a DRI Risk Management Continuity course, and have successfully passed the Risk Management Examination. ARMP is for individuals with knowledge of risk management, but who have not yet acquired the necessary experience for certification at a higher level. Those wishing to remain at the ARMP level of certification need only to pay their annual fee to maintain the active status of their certification.
