Risk management helps engineers deliver projects safely - on time and on budget.
In this self-paced course, you'll go beyond introductory concepts to explore better practice in risk management. You'll master the techniques required to manage risk for projects, operational processes, and in your workplace.
You'll learn how to:
- critique risk tools to decide on the best one for your situation
- reduce risk by applying practical risk mitigation strategies
- improve risk processes and frameworks in the workplace
- communicate more effectively with stakeholders about risk
We'll refer to these standards in the course, which you'll ideally have access to in your workplace:
- ISO 31000:2018 Risk Management—Guidelines
- IEC 31010 Risk Management—Risk assessment techniques
After completing this course, you'll be able to apply the best risk management tools and techniques to influence risk outcomes.
