Closeup of laptop keyboard.jpgKnowledgeLeader has recently improved and expanded upon our online CPE training courses. The KLplus area now brings you over 30 self-paced CPE courses—with more to come soon! Our courses meet the NASBA CPE requirements and are in a system where you can easily manage your course progress.

Risk managers, in particular, will find this expansion useful because of the new risk management courses added to the repository. Learn how to identify risk, assess risk, make a risk management plan, and deal with risk.

We have three general risk management courses:

Risk Management: Assessing Risk

CPE Credit: 1

Description: Risk is the driving force behind every business venture, so it's important to understand risk and plan for it. In order to manage risk, however, leaders first need to assess the risk factors that threaten their organization so that they can create a strategy to avoid or mitigate that risk. This course examines the techniques commonly used to assess risk, including opportunity assessment, and threat assessment using FMEA - Failure Mode and Effect Analysis.

Risk Management: Dealing with Risk

CPE Credit: 1

Description: The most desirable objective of risk management is to eliminate risk uncertainty, whether for threats or opportunities. But what happens when that's not an option? Even the most thorough planning is subject to risk, and the best leaders are the ones who know how to respond effectively to risk, whether for a threat or an opportunity. This course examines the third stage of risk management—dealing with risk. It provides general strategies for dealing with risk, such as risk exposure adjustment and contingency planning, and it outlines strategies specific to dealing with threats and opportunities.

Risk Management: Identifying Risk

CPE Credit: 1

Description: Risk is the driving force behind every business venture, so it's important to understand risk and plan for it. Even though the best leaders are accomplished decision-makers who know how to make tough choices on the fly, in today's business environment you must know how to proactively identify risk factors and how to recognize when business ventures are at risk of becoming critical situations. This course examines the first stage of risk management—identification of risk factors. It also presents several risk identification techniques, including how to use root cause identification, the Delphi technique, and brainstorming sessions to identify risks.

Project management professionals will appreciate the two project-based risk management courses as well:

Identifying Project Risks (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

CPE Credit: 2

Description: Since every project faces some degree of risk, good project management involves a thorough investigation into all potential risks that may impact the project throughout its life cycle. Identifying potential risks and their causes and impacts can mean the difference between a project that reaches a successful conclusion and one that does not. In this course, learners will continue to learn about processes within the Project Risk Management Knowledge Area. It covers the best practices outlined in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Fifth Edition published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). Specifically, learners will be introduced to the second of the six risk management processes: Identify Risks. The course covers many risk identification methods, including group information gathering techniques, diagramming techniques and SWOT analysis. The results of these methods are compiled in the risk register, which is also covered in detail. This course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date project management information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the PMI® certification exam. This course is aligned with the PMBOK® Guide – Fifth Edition, published by PMI®, Inc., 2013.

Risk Management Planning (PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition)

CPE Credit: 2

Description: There are a few questions that every project manager should ask at the beginning of a project: What do we hope to gain from this project? What kinds of things could keep that from happening? And how should we respond if those events occur? Every project involves some degree of risk. Identifying potential risks and having a plan for dealing with them can spell the difference between a project that reaches a successful conclusion and one that does not. In this course, learners will be introduced to the Project Risk Management Knowledge Area. It covers the best practices outlined in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Fifth Edition published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). Specifically, learners will be introduced the first process in the Project Risk Management Knowledge Area: Plan Risk Management. Techniques for creating a risk management plan and preparing documentation for the risk identification and analysis processes will be covered in detail. This course provides a foundational knowledge base reflecting the most up-to-date project management information so learners can effectively put principles to work at their own organizations. This course will assist in preparing the learner for the PMI® certification exam. This course is aligned with the A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Fifth Edition, published by PMI®, Inc., 2013. Copyright and all rights reserved.
