Every organisation faces uncertainty and risk.  Very few operate in a risk-free environment.  From uncertainty about economic indicators to concerns about safety and the organisation’s ability to retain client support, managing a range of risks is required for both survival and success. 

Every organisation – even small ones – can use risk management strategies and tools to protect vital assets.  This course will lead you to a greater understanding of monitoring, assessing and managing risk.  (Based on SAQA ID 252025, NQF Level 5)
