Belief and Value of CRP Certification

As a professional certification of CRP program, we believe that:


  1. Business risk and crisis management is not only crucial to the success of the organization but also a core strategic function that preserves shareholder and stakeholder value in business and industry and ensures the ability of public and other organizations to provide vital services to their consumers and customers.
  2. Professional certification should offer an integrated process that achieves three key objectives:
    • Professional certification should assist the CRP holder in a realistic, achievable and measurable self-assessment of his or her knowledge and skill set and position within the profession.
    • Professional certification should verify that at the time of certification the individual has the needed knowledge, skills, and learnt experience typically required to work as a certified risk planner. CRP holders should have the necessary knowledge and experience to satisfactorily complete an examination. Although the practice and terminology of business risk and crisis management varies widely, the certification process should allow an experienced professional to satisfactorily demonstrate core competencies regardless of such variance.
    • Certification requires continual personal professional development to ensure its relevance and practicability in a changing world. Development activities should both assure the currency of the knowledge and skills of the professional and assist in the individual's professional career growth and advancement.
  3. CRP holders should be better prepared to perform their professional duties and responsibilities after successfully completion of the certification process than they were before starting it.
  4. Professional certification of CRP is a valuable personal credential that is portable and should be protected by CRP holders and by the certification program to ensure its belief and value.
  5. CRP holders are strongly encouraged to positively and proactively assist any organizations or business in any situations wherever and whenever they need assistance, and serve the community best.
