The role of a Risk Manager sits at a Diploma level, as a general rule. Risk Managers are responsible for communicating risk policies and the overall policies and procedures for an organisation that minimise and manage risks.
This includes development of risk models, monitoring and improving controls to ensure there is effective risk management at an operational and strategic level. To achieve these outcomes, a Risk Manager is going to need to ensure extensive and appropriate research and quantitative and qualitative analysis has occurred.
Risk Managers must have the business skills to communicate effectively through a range of reports, negotiations and educational presentations, balanced with savvy business and operational knowledge.
To complete the Diploma of Security Risk Management through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), you need to demonstrate at least two years experience in:
The Security Risk Management (SRM) sector is expanding rapidly as demand from both government and private enterprise grows. So too is the range of roles available within this industry.
At one end of the spectrum there will always be straight forward security guard and personal protection roles, however increasingly security and risk careers have evolved into the realm of data protection and corporate IP security, with opportunities both domestically and internationally.
Security Risk Management careers represent a prime civilian industry for ex-military and ex-police personnel. However it is also an industry that values a wide range of life and work experience, particularly business skills.

What is Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)?
RPL stands for Recognition of Prior Learning. RPL is a process through which the experience, skills and knowledge that you already have can be converted to nationally recognised qualifications.
Getting qualifications through RPL means that you don't have to sit in a classroom and learn about things that you already know. You can just show evidence that you've covered it in your job.
You may need official qualifications (that piece of paper!) to meet government regulations for certain jobs, or to progress into higher-paying roles.
A minimum of six months of relevant experience is required and the experience cited as evidence must be from the last five years.
How does the RPL process work?
Let's step this out a bit more:
Step 1. We conduct a free preliminary skills assessment and give you a report.
The RPL process begins with a conversation with one of our Skills Recognition Advisors.
This is cost-free and obligation-free.
Step 2. You tell us the qualifications you want and provide evidence
You can make an informed decision about which qualifications are best for you and your career. Once this is confirmed, we can complete the process.
Step 3. You receive nationally recognised qualifications!
Congratulations! Your experience has been validated and translated into nationally recognised qualifications.
