In the course of the further development of professional project management, PMI® has recognised the demand for a proof of competence for the professional project risk manager and with the PMI-RMP® certification has set a globally recognised, uniform standard for professional project risk management.
The certificate attests to experience in project risk management as well as a deep understanding and knowledge of PMI® Project Management „Best Practices“ in risk management.
The certificate is a valuable proof of competence for project risk managers, project managers, programme managers, project portfolio managers and PMO managers.
Please note that this seminar requires a very good knowledge and understanding of the PMBOK® Guide and the content of the PMP® Preparation Seminar.
