BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

RIMS' new risk certification program exam April 10


The Risk & Insurance Management Society Inc. on Friday launched its risk management professional certification program.

RIMS plans to administer its first in-person RIMS-CRMP (Certified Risk Management Professional) exam on April 10, 2016 in San Diego for RIMS members with either a bachelor's degree (or global equivalent) in risk management and one year working full-time in risk management or a bachelor's (or global equivalent) in a non-risk management related field and three years of full-time employment in risk management, a statement said.

For members without a bachelor's degree, seven years of risk management is required. Possessing an associate's degree in Risk Management (ARM) and/or a Canadian Risk Management (CRM) designation counts as two years of risk management experience.

“The RIMS-CRMP is intended to boost practitioners' professional standing and confirm their value to leadership,” Rick Roberts, RIMS president said in the statement.

There is limited availability for the exam. Additional online exams will be offered at an increased registration fee after the San Diego exam.

In October of this year, the Federation of European Risk Management Associations launched its professional certification program for risk managers in Europe, known as rimap.
