FERMA, Latin American Risk Mgmt. Group ALARYS Partner to Offer Rimap Certification


The Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) and Latin American risk management association ALARYS signed a memorandum of understanding to jointly promote the FERMA rimap® risk management certification program.

The agreement allows ALARYS to offer the FERMA certification to its members in Latin American and Caribbean islands.

ALARYS will now develop a rimap preparation course for certification candidates, and its educational activities will be eligible for rimap continuing professional development (CPD) points. Rimap holders must earn CPD points every two years to renew their certification as part of the rimap lifelong learning principle.

The presidents of the two organizations, Jo Willaert of FERMA, and Jorge Luzzi of ALARYS, signed the agreement at the FERMA General Assembly in Brussels.

In addition to ALARYS, FERMA also has agreed mutual recognition of CPD activities with the U.S. risk management association RIMS, the Pan-Asia Association PARIMA, and IRMSA in South Africa,

“FERMA has long had close connections with ALARYS, especially through the two associations’ joint members, Spain’s AGERS and Portugal’s APOGERIS,” said Willaert of FERMA. “This agreement underlines the strength of that relationship and also shows that FERMA rimap is receiving broader international as well as European recognition.”

Former FERMA president Jorge Luzzi said: “This agreement expresses intense interest in aligning the Latin American and Caribbean risk management community with progressive professional skills and best practices in Europe. We also believe that risk managers in Europe will benefit from closer links between our two organizations, which have strong links to my region, and our education and training programs. “
