All three courses will be offered consecutively at Wilfrid Laurier University in future terms.

Risk Assessment, Risk Control, Risk Financing
The Global Risk Management Institute is the governing body that determines standards, sponsors education programs and controls the professional designations for the Canadian Risk Management Certificate. Today, the institute has more than 400 members who include risk management professionals, insurance brokers and insurance adjusters as well as business leaders interested in increasing their risk management knowledge and understanding.
Risk management involves a comprehensive study and review of the loss exposures facing an organization. It involves understanding the risks facing the organization and identifying the means to prevent or minimize these losses in the most cost-effective manner.
