M_o_R® Management of Risk 4th Edition Virtual

Why should I take the M_o_R 4th Edition virtual course?

M_o_R is a road map for risk management. It brings together principles, perspectives, people, and a set of interrelated processes. It provides advice on how the principles, perspectives, and processes should be embedded, reviewed, and applied differently depending on the nature of the objectives at risk.

The Practitioner training provides candidates with the knowledge and understanding to contribute to the identification, assessment, and control of risks across organizations.  The training is based on the four elements of the M_o_R framework and how they support governance.

Virtual classroom training allows you to benefit from real-time teaching in the comfort of your home or office. You get the same interactions as an on site course and will be able to ask questions to the instructor. Since the exams are not done on paper during the class but online, you will also benefit with time to study and prepare until you are ready to get the certification.

A webcam is required to identify yourself to the proctor with a photographic ID and then you can do the exam online from home. It is recommended that you take the exam shortly after the virtual class.

How does the course prepare me for the M_O_R Practitioner exam?

The course follows the official M_O_R Practitioner syllabus. During the course, you practice with the latest exam papers from PeopleCert International.

What are the technical requirements for the online exam?

A personal computer is recommended to avoid any technical issues. If you are using an office computer, make sure you have the access rights or IT support at the time of the exam. For the online proctored exam an interface needs to be installed. Administrative rights are therefore essential.

Exams can be taken on a recent MAC or PC with Windows. A webcam and working microphone (internal or external) are required.

The online exam is not available on a tablet (Ipad) or Cellular phone at the moment.

Do I need ID for the M_O_R exam?

You must have a photographic ID with you. A driver’s license or passport is fine. A work ID, with photograph, is also acceptable.

English is not my native tongue?

For exams done in another language than your native tongue, you will be attributed 25% more time. We can also make arrangements to help with dyslexia or medical issues regarding exams if you submit a doctor’s note in advance.

How long does my M_O_R Practitioner qualification last?

The M_O_R certificate is valid 3 years.
You can join the MyAXELOS membership for a small fee, maintain your digital badge and certification by recording 20 points of continuous development per year. Otherwise retaking the exam after 3 years will be costly.

Candidates who do not renew will still be included on the Successful Candidates Register (SCR) and the Candidate Verification Service, but a note will be added to their record to indicate that their certification needs to be renewed to align with current certification requirements.

What happens if I don’t pass a M_O_R exam?

If you don’t pass a M_O_R exam you can do a re-sit. We will send you a new voucher code for an additional fee.

Can I just take the M_O_R exam with you?

Sorry, no. We are an Accredited Training Organization for M_O_R, so we are not permitted to offer just exams.


What are the class hours?

For most of our virtual classes, the course is Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday. Start time for the Western classes is usually 8h30 a.m. or 9h00 a.m. Central time zone, and for Eastern classes 8h30 a.m. or 9h00 a.m. Eastern time zone.

How do I prepare for M_o_R training?

You have about 2 hours of preparation to do before you attend the Management of Risk course. Before the class, we will send you the official guide. During the pre-course, you read key chapters. Even if you don’t understand things before you come along – don’t worry. If you’ve done the work, our trainers are experts in Management of Risk. We’ll get you understanding the method in no time at all.

How does the virtual class work?

You connect to the online platform (Zoom) and the trainer will deliver the course to you wherever you are. We ask that you keep your camera open so that the instructor can get a good sense of how learning is evolving. Some time periods will be allocated for questions and interactive exercises.

Can exams be taken on paper?

No. As of February 1st, 2022, the exam authority PeopleCert has eliminated paper exams in favor of online.

I am not sure my computer is up to date for the online exam?

You can use the contact form to send us a message in advance. We will be able to verify if your computer meets the technical requirements.

What is the process for a proctored exam?

The exam authority has a strict procedure for online exams to ensure the security of the session. Some of them are:

You will be asked to be alone in a well-lit room with no background noise. The proctor will ask you to rotate your webcam to verify the area. Your desk must be clean of papers, books, or notes. Glass walls and/or doors are prohibited unless they are covered. You will be asked to position yourself in a way that doors are behind you and visible to the proctor through the webcam.
