A key pillar of any professional body is the ability to provide members, and the discipline of operational risk more widely, with high quality educational resources, allowing those interested in the discipline of operational risk to stay abreast of industry developments and good practice tools and techniques.
The Institute’s approach to learning and development covers a number of strands: formal qualification, access to good practice documents written by experienced practitioners, access to conversations and events which develop understanding and the provision of interesting publications and news.
