Designed and taught by renowned practitioners, you will gain a clear introduction to specialist topic areas and the important issues in relation to governance and risk management principles, frameworks and approaches.

Certificate structure

Our Certificates include a mix of six compulsory and elective short courses. You can complete these courses online, face-to-face or virtually. They are open entry with no prior qualification required.

If you complete a face-to-face Certificate, you have the option to do this via our intensive mode (six short courses across three consecutive days or across three weeks). Please note: when registering for intensive mode, electives will be selected for you, these electives can be changed subject to availability.

To graduate from a Certificate, you must complete and pass the online multiple choice exams for each of the six short courses required for your Certificate, within a 12-month period.

When doing a short course online, your 30-day access to the course recordings and subject materials starts on the day you pay for the short course.
