There are no shortcuts. The one thing standing between you and success on the FRM Exam Part I is hard work. GARP recommends you aim to spend at least 200 hours preparing for Part I. Schweser’s Prepare, Practice, Perform® methodology gives you the structure you need to get the most of the time you spend preparing.
Anyone can register to take the exam. FRM certification is awarded after a candidate has passed two rigorous multiple-choice exams (FRM Exam Part I and Part II) and demonstrated two years of relevant work experience. Candidates must take the FRM Exam Part I before taking Part II. Certified FRMs are strongly encouraged to earn 40 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) every two years to maintain the latest best practices in risk management.
