Risktec Professional Qualifications (RPQs) in Risk and Safety Management

Achieve recognition in Risk and Safety Management with a Risktec Professional Qualification (RPQ)

The RPQ programmes are available via face-to-face, distance learning and blended learning. The same programmes, content and learning outcomes are offered as the postgraduate education but, rather than undertaking assessment to MSc level, students undertake only about one-sixth of the assessment hours and are assessed by Risktec to a professional level.

The RPQ programmes have been developed by practitioners for practitioners. They are intended for anyone working in process safety, technical safety, safety engineering or nuclear safety within major hazard industries, such as oil and gas, petrochemical, chemical, nuclear, transportation and mining.

The programme objectives are:

  • Justify the use of risk assessment through illustration of its objectives and drivers
  • Analyse and evaluate a broad range of practical risk management tools and techniques and demonstrate expertise in selected techniques
  • Devise practical solutions for real-life risk management problems
  • Develop a questioning and critical attitude to management of risks
  • Display mastery of clear and effective communication of risk
  • Practise self-learning and demonstrate a commitment to the risk management profession

Progressing through the RPQ programme is flexible

A fully customisable solution for corporate clients

Corporate clients can customise the content of the programmes or select a standard programme.  The solution can be delivered face-to-face (F2F), online or a mixture of both (blended learning).

The level of assessment can also be customised for a corporate client, for example to reflect the organisation's own standards of learning.
