The Global Risk Management Institute Designation is awarded to students who have successfully completed three risk management courses.
In all cases, students register with CCE for individual courses. In most cases, students must also register at the program level with the association.
It is the responsibility of the students to comply with the program admission and course requirements of the professional association or institute. Each organization has its own requirements regarding application, admission, program and membership. Students should contact the organization for detailed information concerning their program.
Students who wish to pursue a McMaster University Certificate or Diploma, in conjunction with their external designation, should contact the Centre for Continuing Education.
