PRMIA announces the release of its Credit and Counterparty Risk Manager Certificate (CCRM) and its Market, Liquidity and Asset Liability Management Risk Manager Certificate (MLARM). These certificates fill a niche in the risk management market, bringing valuable expertise and practical implementation techniques to those in risk-related roles in financial services.

The PRMIA Credit and Counterparty Risk Manager Certificate provides a comprehensive understanding of credit risk analysis frameworks and how to deploy them and act on them in practice in financial institutions. Successful candidates will be better prepared to implement meaningful risk assessment initiatives, produce useful risk management information, and understand the key modeling techniques for credit risk measurement.

Candidates are required to pass one exam to attain the CCRM Certificate. Learn more about the CCRM certificate, including an overview of the syllabus, exam preparation resources, fees and registration.

The PRMIA Market, Liquidity and Asset Liability Management Risk Manager Certificate delivers a thorough understanding of these areas of risk management, their frameworks, and various measurement methodologies in financial institutions.

"These certificate programs perfectly meet the need of risk professionals with busy schedules, allowing focus on important topics within credit, counterparty, market, and liquidity risk, without needing to immediately commit to a full program of study in all risk domains,” states Dr. Oscar McCarthy, PRM, PRMIA Executive Committee member. “Completing targeted certificates such as the CCRM and MLARM should broaden understanding of targeted crucial risk management topics throughout the profession and thus be of benefit to the financial services industry.”

Exam vouchers and study materials, including the CCRM and MLARM Handbooks, may be purchased now for those wishing to take the exam, which will be delivered in over 5,500 Pearson VUE testing center locations worldwide beginning in March 2016.
