Course Description

CPD in Systemic Risk Management

Trinity College Dublin

Trinity College Dublin is an Engineers Ireland Registered Training Provider. This course is CPD Approved by Engineers Ireland.


Organisations want to be able to manage risk in a coherent, comprehensive, and effective manner. Excellence in operational risk management goes beyond meeting regulatory compliance and reacting to specific incidents; it implies being able to muster the evidence to support the transformation of system performance to meet strategic goals in a proactive way.

This fully online six-week course will give you an overview of how to develop systemic risk management in organisations such as healthcare, transport, aviation, finance, pharmaceutical, defence forces, emergency services and more. It will use real business examples to demonstrate practical methods to analyse and manage sources of risk, enabling a proactive, effective, and strategic capability.

This approach both enhances the individual practitioner’s capability and benefits their organisation. Participants will be able to take the skills and knowledge gained on the course to start identifying and making changes in their own workplace.

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Develop a systems understanding of operations and risk, particularly in relation to complex operational problems.
  • Understand monitoring and measurement in safety management, safety assurance and managing safety performance.
  • Recognise the role of data and data analytics in generating evidence.
  • Understand and support processes of improvement and change.
  • Develop a joined-up strategic risk management capability.

Who is this Course For?
