Canadian Risk Management designation

The Insurance Institute’s risk management courses meet the foundational course requirements for the Canadian Risk Management (CRM) designation. The CRM is recognized by RIMS and awarded by the Global Risk Management Institute (GRMI).

To earn the CRM designation, candidates need to complete three foundational courses and pass a standardized exam for each course. The standardized exams are administered by GRMI and are separate from the course exams administered by the Insurance Institute. 

Once registered in an Insurance Institute risk management course, candidates should contact GRMI to register for the corresponding GRMI exam.

Please consult the Global Risk Management Institute for complete details of the steps for obtaining the CRM designation.
