What is the Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP)®?
Project risk management professionals perform a specialized function attuned to the needs of a project environment that is increasingly global, dynamic, and complex. The PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP)® certification demonstrates an individual’s ability to identify and assess project risks, and to develop risk responses that mitigate project threats and capitalize on opportunities.
According to PMI, eighty-three percent of organizations that are high performers in project management practice risk management frequently while just 49 percent of low performers do so. These high performers meet their goals 2.5 times more often and waste 13 times less money than low performers, as found by PMI’s 2015 Pulse of the Profession® report.

Individuals with a project or organizational role in the specialized area of risk management, certified PMPs who are interested in demonstrating a deeper level of expertise in risk management techniques, project or program managers who wish to enhance their skills in this area, financial planning and analysis practitioners who are responsible for developing project budgets and contingency plans.
