The ESRM program in South Africa completed its series of training workshops for consultants, which began in January 2018. The overall aim of the workshops was to improve participants’ understanding of E&S risk management for financial institutions. An E&S risk management recap workshop and final exam was held in October 2018. The workshop was attended by 34 South African based E&S consultants.
The feedback survey found that 92 percent of participants thought the workshop exceeded their expectations. Furthermore, for the overall course, 73 percent of participants said the course had significantly improved their knowledge of E&S risk management for financial institutions and 92 percent felt that the course had left them “well equipped” to provide E&S risk management consultancy services to financial institutions.
