Risk Management Practitioner Certificate Program - Property & Liability Claims, Safety & Loss Control


PRISM has partnered with CJPIA and CPS HR to offer five(5), full-day in-person training courses, which provide the building blocks to establish, develop and embed risk management as a business process in your public sector organization.  Click for the description of all 5 courses.

All public entities will suffer a loss eventually. Insurance will pay for losses, but it does not prevent them. This workshop will help public entity practitioners plan for and mitigate losses to their organizations. Participants will learn how to identify and evaluate their agency’s particular loss exposures, while putting into place sound loss control measures. In addition, this workshop will increase participants’ effectiveness in managing first party property and third party liability claims. This includes gaining an understanding of the California Tort Claims Act and how to navigate the gap between the purpose of the law and its practical application.
