In 2018, the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) announced the launch of a learning program toward earning the COSO Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Certificate. The program is offered by the American Accounting Association (AAA), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), Financial Executives International (FEI), IMA–The Association of Accountants and Financial Professionals in Business, and The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA).
The COSO ERM Certificate is geared to professionals who play a risk management role in their organizations, consultants who provide advisory services related to ERM, and board members who provide oversight of ERM.
The program comprises self-paced learning and a hands-on workshop. Upon successful completion and passing an online exam, candidates will receive an official COSO ERM Framework Certificate of completion and Digital Badge. The certificate demonstrates competency toward applying the integration of ERM with strategy and performance using COSO’s updated 2017 Enterprise Risk Management – Integrating with Strategy and Performance Framework.
