IMPORTANT: The Institutes has published a new ARM 54 textbook/exam. A live class and recordings for the new (2nd Edition) will be held every Wednesday at 5:30 PM PDT and will go for ten weeks starting on March 22, 2017. If you would like to register for the live class, please complete the webinar registration form.
For those using the 1st Edition textbook, you can still take the “old” exam up until April-June 2017 testing window.
The goal of this site is to promote professional development among risk management and safety professionals and to remove the barriers that prevent people from obtaining their ARM designation. The most significant barriers are cost and and finding a class that fits with your schedule. While a traditional classroom course can cost over $500, the ARM Study group is only $50 for each of the ARM 54-56 courses and $100 for the ERM 57 course. Best of all, you can access course materials 24/7 on demand via a secure YouTube channel and/or download to your mobile device.
Please visit the Course Subscription page to register and pay for courses.
