Certified Risk and Compliance Management Professional in Insurance and Reinsurance - CRCMP(Re)I, distance learning and online certification program


The recent crisis has revealed not only the extreme complexity of insurance and reinsurance activities, but also the difficulties that risk and compliance officers, managers and directors face in understanding all dimensions of the risks being taken.
