FAQ After Exam Questions about work experience

#61
Hi all,

Greetings from India !!

I have been preparing for FRM Level 1 November'19 exam. Meanwhile I got selected in one of the Chemical Trading firms as a Business Analyst. My profile there would be to Maximize the profits realized through Import and Export of Specialty chemicals by reducing the costs paid to manufacturers and increasing the revenue generated from the customers. Basically, we are a sort of facilitator to connect sellers and buyers.

My concern was if the experience as a Business Analyst at this place would fulfill the criteria of 2 year work experience for FRM Certification ? I have to take a call today itself whether to join this Organization or not. Please help me out in this case.


Thanks and Regards,
Utkarsh Khattri

Hi David/Nicole,
I am really interested in studying risk management I have started more as a hobby as it fascinates me but I would like to know if my work experience meets the criteria for FRM?
I have 15+ years experience as a Software Tester in IT and have worked across various domains. About 10 years of that has been testing software on OMS, trading systems, trade life cycle and compliance across FX, Bonds markets. About 1 year ago I switched employers and I have been exclusively working on testing software for counter party risk and settlement risk, it requires deep analysis of algorithms, quant and strategies on reducing CCP risk, By the time I give the FRM exam I would have added more experience in this.
What do you guys think will I qualify???
Really appreciate your reply,
Thanks,
Karthik

Hello,
first of all, I passed FRM Part 2 on May,2019. The expiring date for job experience for me is May, 2024.
I currently am working as an intern at an accounting firm tax team.
And I have 2 questions regarding qualified experience that counts.
First, I would be working 3 months in the accounting firm as an intern , and
does this count towards FRM qualified experience?
And second, I may get a job on September, 2022 and will be able to fill 2 years of job experience
on September, 2024, which passes the expired date by 4 months.
I would like to know if in that case, does the experience still count or do I have to re-start the FRM program
all over again?

Thank you.
