Risk Management Practitioner Certificate Program - Insurance Administration, Review and Risk Transfer


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.
