This Five-day course provides delegates with a thorough understanding of the Management of Risk (M_o_R) methodology. During the course we introduce the Principles, Approach, Process, and Embedding & Reviewing M_o_R which form the core concepts of M_o_R. We will also explain how M_o_R is important throughout the organisation from Strategic, Programme, Project and Operational perspectives.
Throughout the course, our M_o_R experts help delegates understand the benefits of adopting the M_o_R methodology.
Prior to the course delegates will receive QA's pre course reading to help them prepare adequately. All relevant course materials are provided, including the core text book 'Management of Risk: Guidance for Practitioners'. The course includes the M_o_R Foundation examination on Day 3 and concludes with the M_o_R Practitioner examination on Day 5.
No prerequisites are necessary for attendance, although delegates will be expected to have some experience of working in an Operational or Programme, Project environment prior to attending the M_o_R Foundation course.
Delegates will be provided with QA's pre-course reading prior to attending the course to help them prepare for the course. The pre-course reading is expected to take approximately 10 hours to complete. The success on the course will be enhanced by close attention to the pre-reading material.

The course will cover the following syllabus areas:
Introduction to M_o_R
Delegates are introduced to the world of Risk Management and the M_o_R framework. Understanding what a risk is and why and when we should do risk management and how Risk management is part of Corporate Governance & Internal Control.
M_o_R principles are essential for the development and maintenance of good risk management. They are intended to guide an organisation to develop its own approach to meet their specific needs.

The way an organisation implements the principles are described in their approach documents and support documentation:
- Risk Management Policy
- Process Guide
- Risk Register
- Issue Register
- Risk Improvement Plan

- Risk Communication plan
- M_o_R Process
The M_o_R Process is divided into four main steps of:
Focusing on the goals and tasks of each steps, the inputs needed to carry out the step, the outputs produced and the various techniques that may be applied.
The way in which the principles, approach and process are applied will vary according to the perspective in which they being carried out.
