The Certificate in Risk Governance® is awarded to those who have completed The Board Members' Course on Risk® - an intensive 17-course education program and evaluation. The curriculum is designed for current and aspiring board members who seek to advance the governance of risk-taking at their organizations and those who interact with boards. Taught by some of the world's leading figures in risk governance, the program features lessons by nearly 50 board members, C-level executives, and well-known authors from five continents. No course on risk for board members as robust as this - depth, practicality, and global expertise - exists anywhere else.

“Having presented to the New York Life board of directors and its committees, I found the training from professional experts and board directors in completing the course to be very rigorous and valuable, adding a new dimension to my understanding of governance and risk management best practices,” said Mr. Pell.
