Institute of Risk Management (IRM) India Affiliate has announced the results of the May 2022 Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Level-1 examination.

Kavya Kashyap, ex analyst at Xceedance Consulting India Pvt. Ltd and Irshad Ahmed P, key account manager - Plants, Bosch Limited, secured an All-India rank with 76.10 per cent at the Level-1 professional exam. Devanshi Nishit Shah, MCom second year, R A Podar College of Commerce and Economics, secured 74.60% at the Level-1 student exam. Headquartered in the UK, IRM is the world leader in ERM qualifications, and has been driving excellence for over 30 years, across 143 countries. Congratulating all the students who cleared the examination, Kosha Parekh, IRMCert, head of academics, IRM India Affiliate, said, "Following a series of continuous challenges to businesses, the necessity of ERM is becoming increasingly accepted across all industries today. We have seen a steep increase in the demand for qualified risk professionals who can identify and mitigate risks across a variety of verticals and sectors."

Sharing her success story, Kashyap said, "After studying the fundamentals of ERM, I have been able to understand and now identify different kinds of risks which we are dealing with daily. After successfully completing IRM's Level 1 examination, I can proudly say that I am able to think from a risk perspective and apply and implement the same in my field of work."

Echoing similar thoughts, Irshad Ahmed P added, "The study support session by a highly experienced trainer made it easy for understanding and learning quickly with his practical examples/approach. How to identify a risk from various day-to-day happenings, using the news, global forums, and risk research with the PESTLE checklist is something that is very handy. Identifying risks looks easy but it is tricky with its causes and impacts/consequences." Speaking on her feat, Devanshi Nishit Shah said, "Once I was interested in the certification, I contacted the institute and they were very helpful in guiding me through the entire process. I now wish to apply for Level 2 and appear for its exam in the near future." Risk management professionals are in high demand across every sector as businesses attempt to strengthen their risk intelligence and build resilience towards uncertainties. Students and working professionals can gain a fundamental understanding of ERM by taking the Level 1 examination which is held four times a year - in February, May, August, and November. Successful candidates then proceed for IRM's Level-2 exam conducted in June and November. Level-2 onwards, candidates also acquire globally-recognized designations on the completion of each level - IRMCert (Level-2), GradIRM (Level-3), CMIRM (Level-4), and CFIRM (Level-5).
