PMI® Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP)® Overview

Unmanaged risks often lead to project failure, so effective risk management is essential to the success of every project. Project Managers who master risk-related concepts can help organizations manage both positive and negative risks. The PMI-RMP® exam prep training course focuses on planning and monitoring for risk throughout a project.

This 8-hour PMI-RMP® exam prep training course, delivered by our partner Project Management Academy®, prepares you to pass the exam on your first attempt when paired with your prior Project Management Professional (PMP)® training.

Project Management Academy® designed the course to provide detailed insights into the seven project risk management domains, then linking those domains back to core PMP® principles. Students completing the PMI-RMP® certification training will have the knowledge and skills needed to plan, manage and control project risks.
