D. The Dodd Frank Act and the new Risk Management Standards (A6 above)

The US Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act is the most significant piece of legislation concerning the financial services industry in about 80 years. What does it mean for risk and compliance management professionals? It means new challenges, new jobs, new careers, new opportunities.

The bill establishes new risk management and corporate governance principles, sets up an early warning system to protect the economy from future threats, and brings more transparency and accountability. It also amends important sections of the Sarbanes Oxley Act. For example, it significantly expands whistleblower protections under the Sarbanes Oxley Act and creates additional anti-retaliation requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How comprehensive are the slides? Are they just bullet points?

Answer: The slides are not just bullet points, you can read them, understand and learn. These are the official slides we use in our instructor led classes.

2. Do I need to buy books to pass the exam?

Answer: No. If you study the slides carefully, you can pass the exam. If you fail the first time, you must study more. Print the slides and use Post-it to attach notes like "COSO" "Operational Risk" etc. to know where to find the answer of the material you do not remember.

3. Is it an open book exam? Why?

Answer: Yes, it is an open book exam. How to lead an organization, exercise oversight and help to achieve objectives is not something you have to memorize, it is something you have to understand.

4. Do I have to sit for the exam soon after receiving the presentations?

Answer: No. You can sit for the exam from your office or home any time in the future. We will create an online account that never expires.

5. Do I have to spend more money in the future to remain certified? Does the certification lose its value after some time?

Answer: No. Your certificate never expires. It will be valid without the need to spend money or to sit for another exam in the future.

6. Ok, the certificate never expires, but things change.

Answer: If a university degree never expires, why should our certificates expire? Yes, things change, and this is the reason you need to become a member of the association. You will receive a weekly newsletter with updates, alerts and opportunities to stay current. There is no cost for that.

7. How many hours do I need to study in order to pass the exam?

Answer: It depends on your knowledge and experience. You must study the presentations carefully. You must go through the slides another time, and ensure you have learned the details. It takes about 25 - 35 hours.

8. I want to learn more about the online exam.

Answer: You will be given 90 minutes to complete a 35 question multiple-choice exam. You must score 70% or higher. We do not send sample questions. If you study the presentations carefully, you can score 100%.

9. Why should I get certified?

Answer: After the failures of so many organizations during the crisis and the risk that shareholders may sue senior management and the board of directors for gross negligence, firms hire "fit and proper" professionals who can provide evidence that they are qualified.

Organizations need assurance that employees have the knowledge and skills needed to mitigate risks and to accept more responsibility. Supervisors and auditors ask for independent evidence that the process owners are qualified, and that the controls can operate as designed because the persons responsible for these controls have the necessary knowledge and experience.

The marketplace is clearly demanding qualified professionals in risk and compliance management. Certified professionals enjoy industry recognition, have more and better job opportunities, secure the best jobs, and make more money.

It is important to get certified and to belong to professional associations. You prove that you are somebody who cares, learns, and belongs to a global community of professionals.

10. Why should I choose your certification program?

Answer: It is always wise to investigate first. You may search for other risk and compliance management programs.

We strongly believe that our distance learning and online certification programs offer very good value for money:

1. You receive the training material (the official presentations of the instructor-led class).

2. You can pass the exam. There are 3 exams that are included in the price, so you do not have to spend money again if you fail.

3. No re-certification is required. You do not need to spend money in the future to remain certified. Your certificate never expires.

4. You become member to the association and you receive weekly updates, news and alerts.

11. I have more questions.
