Methods of instruction for the modules include lecture, discussion, classroom exercises, a case study and an optional final exam.
ASHRM recommends that you take the modules in sequence as information expands from one module to the next. Essentials is an ideal educational base for new risk managers, and an excellent up-to-date refresher for more experienced professionals. As the next step, Applications shows how principles described in Essentials actually work in the real world. The Advanced Forum consists of expertly guided, small-group analysis of complex challenges and is most beneficial when all participants are able to share their proven solutions.
