Who is this course for

This course is ideal for any staff who need to learn and apply the concepts of risk management and specifically understand the principles and language of the M_o_R method.  For example Directors; All levels of Managers
Programme and Project Managers; Programme Office Staff; Business Change Managers; and Business Consultants.

Purpose of the course

This is the 3 day approach to gaining the Foundation qualification. It is an intense course that will require delegates to prepare thoroughly and be prepared for evening work throughout the course. The course includes the Foundation examination and prepares delegates for the Practitioner and Advanced Practitioner courses should they wish to move on to those levels.

You will learn how to

  • Identify, assess and report on risks

  • Use techniques to achieve the above

  • Understand the differences between risk tolerance, risk appetite and risk exposure

  • Understand different risk perspectives


Delegates should have some familiarity with risk in a business context.

We recommend that delegates leave no more than 3 months between Foundation and Practitioner courses and exams.  Ideally no more than 4 weeks.

Benefits for you as an individual

M_o_R offers a wide-ranging set of guidelines that will help in the management of risk in a project or programme environment. The course will help prepare the delegate for the Foundation exam. Delegates will feel more confident in approaching risk management after attending the course and will be aware of the use of different techniques that can assist in this task.
