Congrats! Apparently it takes exactly two weeks and seems to be the same for eyerone. What is more, I got the impression that the confirmation sent is an automated process (sent out just in the nick of time when two weeks are over). Curious to know who does the checking at GARP whether your work experience lives up to their expectations and whether there has already been someone whose work exp was rejected.
It's interesting how people question the effectiveness of the FRM certification process only after they get certified! haha.
Similar to how people what the CFA exam to become even more difficult so less people can earn it..., only after they earn it.
A friend of mine did CFA L3, got scared she didn't pass cuz the exam was too difficult, eventually found out that she passed..., then proceeded to complain that the exam was too easy. She wants the CFA to make it more difficult. haha.
Interesting characteristic of humans.
That's right. It is extremely natural that the FRM® exam become more difficult.
It's not just because of the feedback from FRM applicants for 190 countries.
It is expected that the FRM PART3 curriculum will be added HAHA.
By the way!!!!! My experience was rejected!!!! I failed to qualify for FRM Certification.
I will fill in a career and challenge certification again.
I can't stand the tension!!
How come? Did they tell you any reason why your work exp has been rejected? I am sorry to hear this, but do you have sth. at hand now (work) to get the required work exp under your belt by 2021/22?
I've received a letter from GARP about Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program. Unfortunately I don't understand: is the program mandatory or voluntary?
From what I understand it is mandatory. I also received this message.
you do not have to do the events on the GARP list, if you do courses through your work or attend conferences or workshops, give presentations etc you can submit these details and GARP will decide how many credits you receive. You need 40 credits in total in 2017/18
FRM CPD is voluntary.
Only ERP CPD is mandatory.
Since FRM is already a really difficult and powerful exam in 195 countries, feedback is widely activated.
2017 CPD program is as follows -
• For FRMs, participating in the CPD program is currently voluntary. FRMs are strongly encouraged to participate in the program in order to best maintain the value and integrity of the FRM certification for themselves and the FRM community.
• For ERPs, participating in the CPD program is mandatory. ERPs are required to participate in the program in order to use their ERP professional designation. If you are unable to participate for personal or professional reasons, contact [email protected] at least 6 weeks prior to the end of your cycle.
• If you are both an ERP and an FRM, participating in CPD is mandatory. You may earn credits simultaneously and CPD credits may be shared among your credentials.
I am not sure with Meadem's post, what happens if you are short some credits at the end of year? Do they withdraw your designation?
Would be great to have some feedback on this from someone who is 100% sure how this is handled. Thanks!
Overlap: @frmfrm: this sounds for convincing honestly speaking.
The fact that FRM® is a lifetime designation is very attractive.
However, it is very difficult to pass the FRM exam. It takes a lot of effort and time to pass the FRM exam.
After passing the toughest exam, You get a lifetime FRM certification!!
