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 7, the last of the five elective units, will develop your knowledge and understanding of the extent and range of organisational behaviours and your influence on the capability of the organisation to respond to the stimuli of crisis, emergency, and risk related incidents. By the end of this unit you will be able to understand and identify organisational behaviour issues and advise on actions to be taken to accommodate them within planning and implementation processes.
