22 May
Risk Management Initiative (RIM) - Institution Assessment Training for Independent Assessors

From 22 to 24 May 2019, from 9am to 5pm, at ADA Luxembourg.


The Institution Assessment Training for Independent Assessors, offered by PRMIA and RIM, is an in-depth, three-day training course designed for risk management experts, consultants, and consulting firms serving the microfinance industry. Through interactive lectures, facilitated discussions, and a case study, assessors learn to conduct a risk management gap analysis and facilitate the creation of a strategic risk management development plan using the Graduation Model and Institution Assessment framework. RIM’s cost-effective training course builds competencies, develops efficiency, and eliminates the need to create a comprehensive risk management assessment methodology, enhancing an assessor’s competitive advantage in the bidding process.



Participants will:

  • Learn the components of RIM’s Graduation Model framework and its value proposition compared to traditional, single-bottom-line risk management frameworks;
  • Learn how to facilitate RIM’s Institution Assessment process, including critical factors within Graduation Model scoring;
  • Learn how to navigate RIM’s Graduation Model Encyclopedia (formerly known as RIM’s Knowledge Base);
  • Gain access and learn to use RIM’s Institution Assessment implementation tools and resources;
  • Be granted a complementary 2018 individual membership ($500 value);
  • Be given the opportunity to join RIM’s exclusive Institution Assessor Directory (formerly known as RMGM Assessor Database);


To ensure robust discussions and for the training to be most effective, participants should have had carried out, are in the process of carrying out, or plan on carrying out technical risk management projects with double-bottom-line financial institutions. Participants should be fluent in comprehensive risk management in financial inclusion and have basic skills in MS Excel.
