Become recognized globally as a leader in financial risk management. The FRM Program has seen dramatic growth in global acceptance and experienced a compound annual growth rate of 29% in total registrants in the last 8 years. Grow your networking connections and join the elite group of over 32,000 global Certified FRMs.
