RIMS, Marsh Crisis Academy Join Forces to Provide Crisis Readiness Courses Online

March 4, 2004

Marsh’s Crisis Academy, the e-learning solution for Crisis Readiness, is working with the Risk and Insurance Management Society Inc. (RIMS) to offer 11 online courses including the global best practices standard for crisis management, emergency planning, crisis communications, humanitarian assistance, security, and others through the RIMS Web site.

RIMS members will receive discounts on these courses and credit towards the RIMS Fellow designation and the RIMS Certificate.

“RIMS is responding to their members pleas to find a way to maintain the quality of the RIMS Fellow but with more flexibility in the course structure,” said Deborah Luthi, RIMS vice president of professional development and director of risk management at the University of California, Davis. “By working online, professionals are improving and expanding their career through continuing education without interfering with the demands their present career requires. Time is managed by the participant, while RIMS can ensure the quality of the course by working with Marsh.”

Marsh’s Crisis Academy offers convenient, cost-effective, education and training curriculum in best practices to the growing number of risk professionals around the world who are responsible for preventing, preparing, responding, and recovering from a wide range of risks, including financial, strategic, operational, and hazard risks.
