Do credentials make the employee? Not necessarily, but they help. In a post at the Project Risk Coach, Harry Hall answers these five basic questions about getting certified as a Risk Management Professional:
- What is the PMI-RMP®?
- Why should someone consider becoming a PMI-RMP®?
- What is the PMI-RMP® exam like?
- How should I prepare to take the PMI-RMP® exam?
- What study materials do I need?
Risk Management Certification
Hall starts off by defining the PMI-RMP:
The PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP) is a designation offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI). This credential is for project management professionals who wish to demonstrate specialized knowledge and skills in project risk management.
The certification can help hone your risk management skills, further specialize your skill set, and further complement other credentials. The exam itself is 170 multiple choice questions and takes three-and-a-half hours to complete. Study groups, books, bootcamps, flash cards, and other such materials are all good ways to prepare for the test. Hall suggests reviewing the materials, skimming, and reciting important information in order to prepare. As far as specific study material suggestions go, Hall suggests using PMI-RMP Exam Prep Study Guide by Belinda Fremouw and Practice Standard for Project Risk Management, among others.
