Risk management as a profession has been expanding rapidly over the past five or six years. As a result, there has been a major shift in the risk management landscape, as it moves from the close confines of an insurance-related profession to a more holistic approach. This more holistic approach has become known as enterprise risk management. One of the more respected risk management training programs is offered by The National Alliance for Insurance Education & Research (The National Alliance). Not satisfied with developing one of the premier national insurance agent programs, The National Alliance began to formulate plans to offer a similar national risk management educational program. Building on the success of the CRM program, The National Alliance has recently developed an advanced risk management program. The express purpose of the advanced program is to give CRMs an opportunity to take their risk management education to a higher level. One of the most impressive aspects of The National Alliance's educational programs is the constant updating that occurs.
