GARP Certified Financial Risk Manager Course

Exam Preparatory Course


The Global Association of Risk Professionals (GARP®) created the Financial Risk Manager (FRM®) certification.  The FRM is the globally recognized professional designation for financial risk managers. Becoming an FRM clearly distinguishes you as someone serious about managing risk. This competitive advantage holds across a wide range of financial services professions, including: risk manager, analyst, trader, portfolio manager, auditor, developer, or salesperson. Whether you are actively employed, or looking to break into the industry, achieving the FRM certification is a valuable career enhancer/accelerator.


The FRM is a comprehensive exam and you are expected to be familiar with a broad range of risk management concepts and techniques. Key concepts appear in the Study Guide as bullet points at the beginning of each section to help you identify the major themes and knowledge domains associated with the readings listed under each section. The Learning Objectives document builds upon the Study Guide and highlights more details around the recommended readings as well as specific learning objectives associated with each section of the knowledge domains covered by the Exam. Approximate weightings for each knowledge domain are assigned to help you navigate through the self-study process as these learning objectives form the backbone of the exam itself, therefore it is strongly suggested that you become familiar with these learning objectives as you review the readings.
