Filling a gap in the market for industry-related courses in risk and safety management, Risktec's Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) in Risk and Safety Management aims to provide risk practitioners with the practical skills needed to progress in the industry.

Delivered by flexible online learning, Risktec's PgCert syllabus - validated by Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) - is the first of a three-part series of postgraduate programmes designed to meet the needs of a growing industry.  Taught by highly experienced teachers with practical experience of the risk and safety profession, the six modules are kept up-to-date with current standards and regulatory developments to provide an industry-focused understanding of:

  • The use of risk assessment in relation to its objectives and drives
  • Practical risk management tools & techniques for diverse situations
  • The development or real solutions to risk management problems
  • The shortcomings of risk management
  • The need for effective communication of risk

Students progress through the syllabus with access to high quality course materials as well as the opportunity to interact with their fellow participants through group exercises and discussions.  The resulting qualification will enable them to prove their commitment to the risk management profession and kick-start their career progression in the real professional world.

New for 2024: Students working in the clean energy or nuclear industries can select a module that is specifically tailored to the needs of their industry.
