The Institute of Operational Risk recognises the need for operational risk management professionals to be able to stay current on best practice risk management techniques.  To this end, the Institute is working on the development of a Knowledge Centre to provide educational resources for its members.

The Knowledge Centre will provide learned papers and links to useful sites on the Internet where additional information may be found.

The Institute is working on Sound Practice Guidance (SPG) for operational risk management.  For further information see main area covering SPG.

The Institute is also exploring the potential to partner with external bodies in order to deliver a professional qualification for its members.

All members are advised to record their CPD from 1 January 2010 onwards. The CPD web page lists the policy in full, and all members should make sure they are familiar with it. It also contains the CPD log which should be downloaded and kept up to date.
