Certified Third Party Risk Management Professional

Certified Third Party Risk Management Professional (C3PRMP) 

Created in partnership with Third Party Risk Institute, SIG University’s Certified Third Party Risk Management Professional (C3PRMP) program covers best and emerging practices in third party risk management. The online, video-based program was developed by renowned expert Linda Tuck Chapman. It is recognized as the global “gold standard” for risk and vendor management professionals and is registered with NASBA and GARP as an approved sponsor of continuing education.

The faculty-assisted eLearning program sources content from Linda’s book, "Third-Party Risk Management: Driving Enterprise Value" (published by the RMA). The book is required reading for the program and must be purchased separately.

The program includes global best practices frameworks and draws from Linda’s experience, expertise and uses real-life examples. After 10 weeks and 15 modules of study, participants graduate with a strong and sustainable working knowledge of operational and third-party risk management.
