IRM enlists Fundamentals of Risk Management training provider in South East Asia

JGA Training Services has recently been accredited as a licensed Fundamentals of Risk Management (FoRM) training provider by the Institute of Risk Management (IRM) and will be operating in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam.

The FoRM course is well respected and attracts delegates from a wide variety of organisations from all over the world. FoRM gives students an introduction to the principles and practices of enterprise risk management and can be applied to anyone from any sector globally. In addition, it serves as a great introduction to the International Certificate in Enterprise Risk Management.

Risk management involves understanding, analysing and addressing risk to make sure organisations achieve their objectives. As risk is inherent in everything we do, the type of roles undertaken by risk professionals are incredibly diverse. They include roles in insurance, business continuity, Health and Safety, corporate governance, engineering, planning and financial services. For its part, FoRM is applicable to any business in any sector.

On completion of this course, delegates will have a solid understanding of how effective risk management can benefit an organisation. It’s suitable for anyone who needs to understand risk management and the role it plays in their area of business (operational and support managers) and is also suited to anyone who needs to know how risk affects strategy and decision-making (ie senior executives).

Sanjay Himatsingani, director of training at the IRM, said: “We’re very pleased to be working with JGA Training Services to deliver FoRM in South East Asia. There has been a big demand for this in the region and we’re delighted to be able to offer the course across new territories that’s delivered by a quality local training provider.”

Julian Arulappu, owner of JGA Training Services, added: “We’re delighted to have formed a strategic partnership with the IRM and bring world-class risk management training to the South East Asia region. This new initiative will greatly assist in putting more emphasis on the development and importance of risk management as a subject and a discipline in the region as well as developing risk professionals locally and connecting them with other leading risk professionals in the world. We intend to work with the IRM in developing tailor-made risk management training courses that fit the different needs of our customers in the region.”

Initially, FoRM will be taught in English, but at a later stage could be taught in other local languages. The course will be delivered in six countries across the South East Asia region, namely Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines and Vietnam.
