Financial Risk Manager (FRM) is the world’s most highly respected certification for business professionals in finance who manage risk.
As the financial industry becomes increasingly competitive and concerned about managing risk, it is essential to distinguish yourself and your ability to add value to an organization.
Earning the FRM signals to employers that you are serious about risk management and that you have had your knowledge validated against international professional standards.
By joining the FRM community, you will become part of an elite group of skilled professionals sought after and employed by the leading financial institutions in the world.
FRM course is a globally recognized professional certification for banking and finance professionals administered by Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP, USA).
The FRM® Part I and Part II exams are held twice a year, in May and November. The FRM program is divided into two parts. Both can be sat on the same day in May or November (although we recommend you only sit one part at a time).
The FRM Exams are pencil and paper multiple choice exams.
A 100 question multiple choice exam, the FRM Exam Part I focuses on the tools used to assess financial risk: quantitative analysis, fundamental risk management concepts, financial markets and products, and valuation and risk models. Part I is always offered in the morning and must be completed in four hours or less.
The FRM Exam Part II is an 80 question multiple choice exam, emphasizing the application of the tools acquired in Part I: market, credit, operational and integrated risk management, investment management as well as current market issues. Part II is always offered in the afternoon and must be completed in four hours or less.
There are no penalties for wrong answers. Passing scores are determined by the FRM Committee. Exam results are pass/fail and are emailed approximately six weeks after the exam. Candidates will receive quartile results comparing their performance to other candidates.
