Course Introduction

One of the key challenges in project management is the failure to adequately identify and address the routine risks that arise during project implementation. This course in Project Risk Management & Compliance is tailored to meet the unique risk profiles that emerge throughout the design and execution stages of projects. Participants will gain the necessary expertise to pinpoint and mitigate project risks by reducing uncertainty and enhancing their management capabilities. This, in consequence, will bolster their capacity to complete projects punctually, within the allocated budget, and upholding stringent health and safety standards.


Projects, by their very nature, are situated in fluid environments making them acutely susceptible to risks. It is, therefore, critical to adopt an evidence-based and proactive methodology to manage these risks. Every risk entails an element of uncertainty, and a fundamental goal of project risk management is to curtail this uncertainty to boost the probability of attaining the desired project results. Throughout the duration of this course, participants will be equipped with the skills to efficiently identify, evaluate, react to, and govern all risks that could potentially influence project outcomes, whether adversely or beneficially.

The objectives of the Project Risk Management & Compliance training course are meticulously crafted to empower Project Managers, Team Leaders, Engineers, Risk Managers, and Project Support Personnel with the acumen and competencies essential for adept risk management throughout the entire span of a project’s lifecycle.
