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.

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.
- You tell us what you’re looking for and where you want to go
- You provide a few easily accessible documents
- You’ll be sent a report within 48 hours. This will include a breakdown of costs involved and lists the qualifications:
- you could be eligible for right now;
- you could be eligible for if you are able to provide some further work examples (and we’ll share with you what the gaps are and the work examples we’d need); or
- if training would be your best option. We don’t offer the training so we’ll give you some information about how to locate a training organisation who delivers what you are looking for.
This is cost-free and obligation-free.
Step 2. You tell us the qualifications you want and provide work examples.
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.
- We tell you exactly what work examples we need to establish your competency in the units that make up a qualification
- You provide your work examples, then you can sit back and relax!
- We match the work examples to the units. This is called mapping. Other providers may get you to do this yourself.
Step 3. You receive nationally recognised qualifications!
Congratulations! Your experience has been validated and translated into nationally recognised qualifications.

Security Risk Management Industry
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.
