Paladin– Creating risk gladiators

Paladin Risk Management Services is the only training organisation in Australia with an approved Diploma Course in Risk Management and Business Continuity.
Rod identified that within the risk management profession there were few Diploma Courses with broad based appeal and that the majority of courses were focused in specific areas such as Workplace Health and Safety and Security.
“I saw that there was a need for a Diploma Course that covered the development of risk management frameworks, the management of individual risks as well as covering specialist risk areas such as project and contract risk management. In addition, I also recognised that many organisations found business continuity management to be a challenge” Rod said.
Not one to see an opportunity go begging Rod developed the groundbreaking Diploma Course in Risk Management and Business Continuity recently accredited by the Australian Skills Quality Authority.
“This course not only addresses the issue of skilling but has been endorsed by the Risk Management Institution of Australasia,” Rod explained.
The course will lead to an accreditation as a Certified Risk Management Technician and will also provide evidence for those seeking the higher accreditation as a Certified Practicing Risk Manager.
“The purpose of the course is to provide participants with the skills and knowledge necessary to develop, implement and maintain a risk management framework into an organization,” Rod outlined.
The course will also provide participants with the skills and knowledge necessary to develop, implement and maintain a business continuity framework into an organization. This qualification reflects the role of individuals with solid and substantial experience in the area of Risk Management and who are seeking to further develop their skills within this field.
“The purpose of the course is to provide participants with the skills and knowledge necessary to develop, implement and maintain a risk management framework into an organization,” Rod outlined.
“This qualification is also suited to the needs of individuals with little or no vocational experience, but who possess sound theoretical Risk Management skills and knowledge that they would like to further develop in order to create further educational and employment opportunities,” Rod emphasized.
Specific job roles that will benefit from this course include Risk managers in organizations, Chief Risk Officers, Compliance Officers, Internal auditors, Members of Risk and Audit Committees, Project managers, Procurement specialists, Risk Management Consultants, Risk Management Software vendors, OHS Managers, Business Continuity Managers/Emergency Managers
