The IRM is delighted to announce a new licensed Fundamentals of Risk Management (FoRM) Training Provider in East Africa

Pinebridge Training and Consulting Limited have recently been accredited as a licensed FoRM provider and will be operating in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi.  

The FoRM course is well respected and attracts delegates from a wide variety of organisations from all over the world. FoRM gives students an introduction to the principles and practices of enterprise risk management and can be applied to anyone from any sector globally; it is also a great introduction to the International Certificate in Enterprise Risk Management. 

Risk management involves understanding, analysing and addressing risk to make sure organisations achieve their objectives. 

Because risk is inherent in everything we do, the type of roles undertaken by risk professionals are incredibly diverse. They include roles in insurance, business continuity, health and safety, corporate governance, engineering, planning and financial services – FoRM is applicable to any business, in any sector. 

On completion of this course delegates will have a solid understanding of how effective risk management can benefit an organisation. It is suitable for anyone who needs to understand risk management and the role it plays in their area of business (operational and support managers) and it suitable for anyone who needs to know how risk affects strategy and decision-making (senior executives).

Sanjay Himatsingani, Director of Training, IRM said:
