The SRMC® course has been specially designed by subject experts to provide a comprehensive and diverse learning experience that aims to equip individuals with the practical skills, knowledge and competence to operate confidently, and credibly, as a Security and Risk Management Consultant.


Throughout the distance learning course we enable you to achieve a broad and comprehensive understanding of risk management and its associated practices. The goal is to not only significantly improve your skill set and gain a selection of recognised qualifications, but to also develop your practical understanding and widen your future career opportunities. As an example, many of our former students have gone on to secure senior positions within the 'Big Four' consultancies; Energy and Extractives, Aviation, Defence and Media, as well as other leading risk management organisations. The course will also equip you with the skills required to consult in a broad range of risk management and business practices.


Unit 3, the first of the five elective units, looks at travel risk management as both a concept and a practice. You will be guided through key legal and moral duty of care requirements, before analysing the required polices and procedures needed for a robust travel risk management framework. This unit concludes with an exploration into emergency and evacuation planning and will examine real life case studies from leading figures in the travel risk management industry.
