IRMSA endorsed risk training

1 November 2015 Conferences & Events

After a rigorous application process, evaluation, assessments, quality assurance, presentations before an industry-leading panel of experts and proposed improvements in the curriculum of the courses, Crest Advisory Africa’s courses on risk management have been endorsed by the Institute of Risk Managers of South Africa (IRMSA).

According to the IRMSA website, Crest will be only the fourth entity to be endorsed; others include the University of Johannesburg (UJ) and Marsh, the insurance giant.

The process is rigorous and qualitative because IRMSA must ensure that members’ or enterprises’ interests are safeguarded and assured of quality education and training materials / interventions that are aligned with the institute’s endorsement policy.

Crest and Hi-Tech Security Solutions Training Academy

In 2015, Hi-Tech Security Solutions, published by Technews Publishing, entered into a partnership with Crest Advisory Africa for the provisioning of risk management and other training to sectors addressed by Hi-Tech Security Solutions. The training started in April 2015 and the partnership has to date trained over 60 security executives and operations managers in the principles of risk management as stipulated in the International Standards Organisation (ISO) 31000:2009 and the methodology to implement risk management as a standard within their respective environments.

These security executives and operations managers represent a diverse group of industries, from mining houses, governmental structures, construction, banking, to retail, logistics and warehousing.

It also extended the reach of Hi-Tech Security Solutions and Crest as international industry leaders in risk management and security training. To date the training academy has reached Southern Africa, Mauritius, Mozambique, Botswana and Zimbabwe, and is in the process of expanding the training to other parts of the African continent.

What does this mean for attendees?

* Your certificate is not only a certificate of attendance, but a certificate endorsed by the only risk management institute on the African continent, IRMSA.

* Crest and Hi-Tech Security Solutions made the correct decisions and selected the highest authority partner within the industry to take this training initiative to exceptional quality heights.

* Crest and Hi-Tech Security Solutions partnered once again with the only industry leading institute to ensure that our service to you as the client are assured, verified and validated.

* Continuous improvement is guaranteed, due to the fact that the courses will be continuously assessed and attended by industry experts representing IRMSA to validate the quality provided during the real course implementation.

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

As a result of the endorsement received, Crest will be applying for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) approval as well. Because of the endorsement, it is expected to be a swift process and then the Crest and Hi-Tech Security Solutions partnership will also be one of the few selected CPD providers under the IRMSA brand.

Additionally, Hi-Tech Security Solutions and Crest is extending the training partnership and will be providing more courses as from February 2016. This will be communicated through the various Hi-Tech Security Solutions platforms.

Should readers wish to advise as to what training courses they would value, please send an email to training@crestadvisoryafrica.com. The information received will be analysed and courses will be developed or training providers will be sourced that comply with quality controls based on the IRMSA process.
