M_o_R® the OGC accredited Management of Risk
course is especially useful for Managers, directors and support
staff involved with, or setting up, a system to deal with practical
management of business risk. Working with Alarm, Maven has
tailored this course for the needs of public service managers and
staff, with both the case studies and the examinations based on
scenarios relating to the public sector.
To achieve the Foundation and Practitioner
qualifications professionals attend a one week course and sit two
papers, the Foundation paper is a 45 minute exam on day three and
the three hour Practitioner paper is taken on day five. During the
course we look at Organisational context and objectives,
stakeholder involvement, activities to enable Risk Management
planning, effective reporting structures, roles and
responsibilities, support structure, creating a central risk
function, early warning indicators, the review cycle for effective
Risk Management, overcoming barriers to implementing a risk
function, a supportive culture and continual improvement.

Management to get real cost benefits. Their experienced trainers
and high quality training materials help delegates to learn
