Financial Risk Manager 

Recognized in every major market, the FRM is the leading certification for risk managers. It is consistently in demand by nearly every major bank and firm in the world.

The Global Association of Risk Professionals™ (GARP®) established the FRM designation to identify and recognize risk professionals who are qualified to make informed decisions based on current, globally accepted industry standards.

Earn Your FRM Certification

Here is the list of requirements you need to meet:

1. Register to take the exam (anyone can register to take the exam)

1. Pass FRM Exam Part I

2. Register for Part II

3. Pass FRM Exam Part II

4. Demonstrate two years of relevant work experience

Candidates must take the FRM Exam Part I before taking Part II. If a candidate elects to take Part II on the same day as Part I, their Part II Exam will not be marked by GARP unless they first pass Part I.
