NEBOSH is a leading global brand in health, safety, wellbeing and environmental qualifications. Internationally recognised qualifications help to raise the competence of safety and environmental professionals as well as individuals at all levels in the workplace.

IIRSM is a professional membership organisation for those responsible for managing risks in all their forms.

Based around the global risk management standard, ISO 31000, this qualification provides a comprehensive overview of risk. Theory is backed up by real-life, case study practical applications so that learners gain a wide understanding of organisational risk management, learning how to identify, manage and communicate risk.

The NEBOSH IIRSM Certificate in Managing Risk is initially available to study online only via a selection of NEBOSH’s global Learning Partners. eLearning gives learners the flexibility to study at a time and place to suit them and successful learners will also be eligible for discounted IIRSM membership.

This is a great opportunity for a busy risk manager or those in the business responsible for business risk management to complete a short course at their own pace at a time that suits them.  Feedback from senior risk managers who took part in the pilot of this course in 2021 had plenty of positive feedback regarding the content and the learning materials.  This NEBOSH qualification looks at all business risk and is considered a good addition to those who have already completed some of NEBOSH’s traditional SHE qualifications.
