Hi..just wanted to provide update on my work ex approval. I got approval from GARP today. I submitted my work ex in Dec 2020 and I followed-up with them on the status last week. Thank you all for sharing your sucess on this page. I think it's a game of more patience and things will fall in place. Just a quick question- do I need to confirm my mailing address anywhere on my profile or the address I have added in profile is all sufficient ?

Hi everyone,

I went the e-mail route and got certified earlier this morning. :)

  • Passed FRM 2 in Jan - results received February 16 2021.
  • Work experience submitted February 15 2021 due to a glitch in the GARP FRM system, which permitted me to submit work experience one day prior to receiving official pass results.
  • I e-mailed GARP member services yesterday and provided some context. I am moving to UK for a masters degree this summer and would like to have the FRM letters alongside my name as I start the program. I was humble, sympathetic, but also expressed my frustration with the whole process as well.
  • At around 9AM today, I received an e-mail confirming my certification was completed and would be mailed to my address in GARP's online system next month. The digital badge was also included.

In the end, it appears that the "light touch, but firm grip" e-mails to GARP do indeed work. However, I suspect that the opportunity for a quick turnaround may be lessened if everyone e-mails GARP with the same purpose in mind. It wouldn't be long before this opportunity is "arbitraged away" as more candidates catch on... ;)

congrts and good to know that GARP has started processing work ex requests from candidates in the Feb-result batch.

Received my results in Jan 21. Literally replied to the email from [email protected] titled “Confirmation of CV Submission” with the following content and got certified in 3 working days.
”I’ve submitted my CV on _____ after receiving my Part 2 results. May I know the status of the submission? Appreciate your response.”

How long did it take everyone to receive their physical certificate from GARP after it was mailed out? Considering there were delays in both the examinations and work experience verification times - due to COVID - should we expect something similar here?

Note from Nicole: I moved all of the posts regarding 2020 work experience verification to this new thread. I created this new thread because our Work Experience Verification thread is really getting filled up with complaints about GARP and the verification process for 2020 during the pandemic (which is not the normal process). We want members in the future to be able to go to the verification thread and read through comments about the normal verification process, and the current thread is becoming very unhelpful. We ask that you please keep all 2020 discussions about work experience verification in this thread. Thank you.

Are there any guys who applied recently or at least this year after COVID-19? It is said that verifying time will be pretty long due to epidemic. I passed examination 2019 May but just submitted my experience late last month, just as soon as I obtained my two years experience. My workmate said one of her friend submitted on mid Aug took more than two months but had not been approved yet. Hope any one could share your experience.
1. My work experience due date is May 2021

2. I submitted my 2-year work experience in August 2020

3. I keep mailed for reminder and at 3rd March 2021, GARP said to revise my work experience

4. I revised my work experience at 5th March 2021

5. Their review has delayed

6. A few years ago, I found my program was lapsed.

7. I mailed GARP for this thing and they said they can do nothing.

Does it make sense????? Now I may have to pass FRM again because of the delayed process of GARP.

Hi @for_you_be What do you mean by "6. A few years ago, I found my program had lapsed"? Do you mean your GARP membership lapsed (how would that be relevant?), or do you mean the five years lapsed?

GARP's rules include, from the FAQ (https://www.garp.org/frm/frequently-asked-questions) ie.,
Candidates have five years from the date they pass the FRM Exam Part II to submit their professional experience or else they will have to retake the Exams and re-enroll in the program as a new candidate.
Do you mean that the five years lapsed, and that's what they said they can do nothing about?

One doubt that I have, do we have to join the GARP membership in order to get the FRM designation and to use it later one (as for the CFA charter). Thanks if you have any information

No. My membership expired and I never renewed it. Yet, after passing part 2 in January, having work EXP. approved in April I received my FRM designation and appear in the charter/designation database.

how should I submit the work experience? just like your most recent job? and do we need to list in details all the work projects that we've worked on.
