PRIMA Announces Development of Public Sector ISO 31000 Training
Alexandria, VA, April 21, 2014—The Public Risk Management Association (PRIMA) today announced that it is developing a first-of-its-kind train-the-trainer program for the international risk management standard, ISO 31000. This program is designed to meet the unique needs of public sector entities in the United States that want to implement enterprise risk management (ERM).
PRIMA has partnered with a team of public sector risk management veterans to develop the training: Dorothy Gjerdrum, ARM-P, CIRM, senior managing director and Robin Flint, executive director of Arthur J. Gallagher’s public sector group and Jan Mattingly, managing director of RiskResults.
“We are very excited to have this opportunity to spread the word about ISO 31000 to the public sector, especially with a program that is adaptable to all public sector types,” said PRIMA President Betty Coulter. “The ISO 31000 standard was published in 2009 and public entities are becoming increasingly aware of the organization-wide benefits of this ‘new’ risk management.”
PRIMA will identify trainers from a pool of experienced risk managers in the public sector and higher education institutions. Trainers will participate in intensive ERM training to learn a curriculum developed by the consultant team. Trainers will then commit to teaching how to implement ERM using ISO 31000 for public entities and higher education institutions throughout the United States.
PRIMA will also develop ISO 31000 resource materials for the public sector, including articles, implementation guidelines and virtual learning groups.
PRIMA will issue a formal call for trainers and the trainer application process will begin in the coming weeks. The course will be launched in late fall of 2014.
PRIMA members can have the opportunity to participate in the development of the training.
The ISO 31000 train-the-trainer program is being funded by the Public Entity Risk Institute (PERI).
