Transforming Risk Professionals in Namibia


IRMSA is recognised as the Professional Body for Risk Management in South Africa by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA). IRMSA represents individuals and companies committed to the enhancement of the Risk Management discipline. IRMSA serves aspiring risk practitioners, risk professionals and decision makers dedicated to the advancement of the risk management profession through accreditation, research, promotion, education, upliftment, training, guidance and strong relationships with other Institutes or Associations.

Being the recognised Professional Body for Risk Management in South Africa, has created an awareness of Risk Management for those working in the industry.  This goes hand in hand with the development of the Risk Management Qualifications and Board Exams.  Risk Managers have the opportunity to climb a professional ladder and be accredited as Professional Risk Managers by being members of IRMSA.  This is one of the many roles that IRMSA plays, along with the many exciting up and coming events, IRMSA training courses, our Annual Conference and Risk Lab as well as our prestigious Awards Dinner. These events can be attended by all levels of individual members as well as by employees of a Corporate Member at special discounted member rates.  Members are also able to attend our IRMSA Breakfasts events for free.  The breakfasts and other events serve as fruitful networking opportunities and learning platforms for Risk Managers and the like. Members also receive the monthly Newsflash and bi-weekly IRMSA Risk Chat, keeping them up to speed with current affairs, as well as having access to our website’s member only technical library.


There are also excellent sponsorship opportunities for IRMSA Corporate Members
