Risk Management Solutions has announced that more than 100 professionals have now earned its certified catastrophe risk analyst designation through the company's educational offerings: the catastrophe analysis training programme and the CCRA exam preparation programme.

Launched in 2005, the RMS CAT course prepares participants for the extensive CCRA exam.

The 12-course schedule offers a mix of classroom-style and e-learning on the entire catastrophe risk modelling process. It aims to encourage critical thinking through a rigorous curriculum of lectures, hands-on examples, and discussion groups.

As an alternative, more experienced catastrophe risk professionals may enroll in the CCRA exam preparation programme, a review course that allows participants to prepare for the exam without attending the full CAT programme.

"Our goal with the CCRA designation is to set a new standard for formalised catastrophe risk modelling education, and the industry response shows that we are succeeding," commented Cheryl TeHennepe, vice-president at RMS.

"Client feedback has been extremely positive, particularly on the quality and depth of teaching, which validates our approach to the subject matter, and confirms that we are helping to create a more insightful cat modelling community. We are proud to offer industry-recognised credentials to the many highly skilled individuals within the catastrophe risk modelling profession."
