Curriculum

RMA conferences and forums present relevant information to help you make smarter decisions in your job. Recognized industry leaders address the conferences and forums, offering insights into current trends and best practices. Many conferences, such as the Risk Management Conference, also offer programs in specialized tracks so that you get information specifically geared to your interests. 

Each year, RMA holds more than 50 round tables in North America, Europe, and Asia, allowing senior executives to discuss a wide range of industry issues. These events bring together small groups of senior bankers who have common interests in a particular issue.

Open enrollment courses are open to anyone and are available across multiple disciplines of risk: Credit, Market, Operational and Securities Lending. 

RMA delivers the best financial services training available—and you can have it right at your institution. Most of our courses can be delivered to your employees wherever and whenever you choose.  On-site courses can be tailored to meet your immediate needs.  No travel is involved, saving time and money. For more information contact the Regional Manager for your area.

Recorded Web seminars are Web-delivered, informational learning opportunities that offer several advantages over traditional classroom courses.

Thousands of lending and credit risk management professionals take advantage of RMA's audio-conference series. Each audio-conference runs only one hour. During that hour some of the most respected names in our business will share their experiences on smarter and more productive lending.
