The Management of Risk course is based on the M_o_R® Guide and provides a basic knowledge of what organizations can do to put in place an effective framework for risk management. This will help them make informed decisions about the risks that affect their strategic, programme, project and operational objectives.  

The Foundation Program will provides a route map for risk management, bringing together principles, an approach, a process with a set of interrelated process steps, and pointers to more detailed sources of advice on risk management techniques and specialisms. It also provides advice on how the principles, approach and processes should be embedded, reviewed and applied differently depending on the nature of the objectives at risk. In this course an interactive approach is used combining lecture, discussion and exercises.

** Foundation course is a 3 day program

The Practitioner qualification is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor M_o_R® in a scenario situation.

** Practitioner course is a 2 day program

Individuals should be able to demonstrate Foundation competencies and, with suitable direction, should be able to start applying the M_o_R® framework to a particular organisational perspective, but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations.

Their individual risk management expertise, complexity of the governance environment in place and the support provided for risk management in their work environment will all be factors that affect what the Practitioner can achieve.

BridgingMinds Network Pte Ltd is a accredited training company for the M_o_R® certification, both Foundation and Practitioner. The M_o_R® Qualification Scheme is developed by the APM Group Ltd in partnership with the Cabinet Office and The Stationery Office (TSO)

The Foundation certification is a pre-requisite for the M o R® Practitioner examination



All M_o_R® Practitioners should be re-registered within 3-5 calendar years of their original certification.


Route to Certification

Candidates must pass the Foundation Exam before the Practitioner Exam, either on the same day or separately. If a candidate has previously passed the Foundation Exam, they qualify to sit the Practitioner Exam without needing to re-sit the Foundation.


If a candidate sits the Foundation Exam only, and passes, they will receive a "Foundation Examination" certificate stating that they have passed. However, if a candidate sits both the Foundation and Practitioner Exam on the same day, and passes both, they will receive a "Practitioner Examination" certificate, but not a "Foundation Examination" one.


There are no pre-requisites for the course and exam, however some experience of working in an IT organization is recommended.

APMG M_o_R® Foundation certification is required for the practitioner exam
