M_o_R®Course Structure

Our M_o_R® course has been designed and developed to allow delegates to understand and apply M_o_R® not just pass the exams. We specialize with working together with organizations and individuals to understand how M_o_R® works and how to effectively integrate it in to the existing structures and processes of the parent organisation.

Our course materials are based on the 2010 edition of, Management of risk: guidance for practitioners” and include examinations based on this manual.
Our M_o_R® Foundation and Practitioner 5 day course follows a two part structure. The first three days of the course involve a course work book designed to allow the delegate to gain an understanding of the application of M_o_R® and preparing for the Foundation examination. 

Following successful completion of the Foundation examination, delegates will spend one day gaining a greater depth of understanding at a practitioner level preparing for the M_o_R® Practitioner examination, sitting this examination on the final day of the course.

M_o_R®-Foundation & Practitioner Training Process

For all organisations we can tailor and plan any training event to maximise delegates’ potential in the M_o_R® training environment. Following confirmation of booking and receipt of the fee ABSC Solutions Ltd will arrange to send the Pre-Course work to the delegate.

The pre-course work usually consists of:

1) Directed reading of the manual including Introduction, Principles, Introduction to Themes from the “Managing Successful Projects”
2) Depending on the delegate learning style and/or time available work through a Pre-course workbook which will be used by the delegate during the course.

The pre-course work will require around up to 20 hours of study prior to the course start date. The M_o_R® Foundation and Practitioner training event is an intensive 5 day course that includes the M_o_R®Foundation and Practitioner examinations within the course. Although you do not need to do all the pre-course work the more you complete before the event the less intense the course should be.
