Overview

On this accelerated GARP Foundations of Financial Risk (FFR) course, you will learn all the concepts and principles of financial risk and risk management and how to implement the practices into your business.

In just 2 days, you’ll build knowledge on key topics like credit, market, operational risk, insurance risk, and the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision’s regulatory principles (Basel Accords). You’ll also learn about:

  • Governance structures for the management of risk in a financial institution
  • The regulatory requirements provided by the Basel Committee on banking supervision

At the end of this course, you’ll sit the GARP FFR exam, and achieve your GARP Foundations of Financial Risk certification. Through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get access to courseware, learn from certified instructors, and train in a distraction-free environment.

Audience

This course is ideal if you have experience in risk, compliance, treasury, financial IT, operations, trading, auditing, commercial/retail banking, and insurance.

It is also ideal if you:

  • Work in the financial services industry
  • Are involved in support, front, middle and back-office staff, including IT, Audit, and HR

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. You'll be certified in just 2 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  2. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs
  4. You’ll learn more . A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  5. You’ll learn faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  6. You’ll be studying with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 110,997 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

Benefits

Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study.

Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.

Firebrand Training provides instruction to meet every learning need:

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs
  • Lab partner and group exercises
  • Question and answer drills
  • Independent study

This information has been provided as a helpful tool for candidates considering training. Courses that include certification come with a certification guarantee. Pass first time or train again for free (just pay for accommodation and exams on your return). We do not make any guarantees about personal successes or benefits of obtaining certification. Benefits of certification determined through studies do not guarantee any particular personal successes.
