NEWTOWN SQUARE, PENNSYLVANIA, USA – A credential for project managers who specialize in project risk management is now available through the Project Management Institute (PMI). The new credential – the PMI Risk Management Profesional (PMI-RMP) credential – was introduced today.
Pressures to complete projects on accelerated schedules and the call for innovations to stay ahead of the competition are among the reasons why qualified risk management professionals are needed on project management teams. The Project Management Institute recognizes the importance and special qualifications needed to be a project risk management professional. The PMI-RMP credential will substantiate the applicant’s knowledge, skills and experience in this area.

To qualify for the PMI-RMP examination, applicants must have a bachelor’s degree or global equivalent, three to five years of professional work experience, with 3,000 hours of experience in project risk management, along with 30 contact hours of formal education in project risk management. The first 100 candidates who sit for the examination between 29 August 2008 and 31 October, 2008 will receive 50 percent off the price of their examination, as well as be entered into one of four regional drawings for $1,000 (USD). To maintain the credential, project risk management professionals will need to acquire 30 Professional Development Units (PDUs) per 3-year cycle in the specialty area of project risk management.
