Risktec Assessed Diploma (RAD) in Risk and Safety Management (e-learning/open)

Risktec Assessed Diploma (RAD) in Risk and Safety Management - distance learning (online) qualification

The Risktec Assessed Diploma (RAD) in Risk and Safety Management is a programme designed by practitioners for practitioners looking to prove their commitment to the risk and safety profession.

Based on the same content and learning outcomes as the Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip), the Risktec Assessed Diploma has a lighter level of assessment that is ideal for professionals who have less time available for university-level study. The RAD programme consists of 12 modules.  Choose any 12 from a suite of 19 modules. You are required to submit eight 1,000 word assessments.  The modules cover a range of key risk management topics including Hazard Assessment, Risk Reduction & ALARP, HSE Management Systems and Incident Investigation among others. Delivered entirely by distance learning, the course combines course slides with videos and online activities to provide students with a highly practical understanding of these areas that will enable them to be more effective in their roles and to advance in their careers.

The Diploma programme is completed in an average time of 12 months and can act as a standalone qualification, or as a step towards the more advanced Assessed Masters in Risk and Safety Management.
