This course has been designed as an intensive preparation for the GARP Financial Risk Manager Certification Exam. You can learn more about this exam at www.garp.com. The course has been designed strictly along the lines of the FRM curriculum (currently the 2000 version, but the program will be updated as soon as the 2001 curriculum is released). The format will be classroom presentations interchanging with FRM format "examinations" and Q+A sessions. To benefit from this very intensive course, participants must have read or otherwise familiarized themselves with the reference materials suggested by GARP. In addition, participants in the 2001 FRM Crash Review Course will have access to a number of online calculators and "mock" examination sessions.
