The Qualified Risk Director® designation requires validation of depth and breadth of experience across business, risk, leadership, and education. It is our top recognition. You can begin with the Qualified Risk Director® Self-Assessment, an inventory of your experiences, and we'll share a report with you on your status. Then, enroll in and complete the requirements of the Board Members' Course on Risk® to earn the Certificate in Risk Governance®. Once you've completed this stage, we'll compare your assessment with publicly available information about you. Other questions?
