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.

This unit holds associated content which does not relate directly to the course assignments or assessment criteria, but which we feel is interesting and supplements the information in the core sessions and will hopefully open your eyes to the many different sectors and potential roles within security risk management industry. With both stand alone sessions, and more in depth content, this unit showcases the best of our SRMC® lecturers, from all over the world.
