100%. Even those who didn't do risk management (in finance) get approved; risk management outside of finance works as well. I think @Nicole Seaman gave a super helpful post once but I can't seem to remember the thread.
I don't think it makes any sense for GARP to reject any request. All they are looking for is a reason to approve your request as an additional ", FRM" in your name card provides free publicity to them.
You can probably try to highlight as much of financial risk management aspects in your cover letter as possible.
Like even if I did something unrelated to risk management such as trade settlement, I would mention that the FRM helped me to understand the importance of risk management and separation between front and back offices, which is actually a particular case study in the FRM part I!
I`ve passed the FRM Part2 exam on May 2021.
As i mentioned little at the title, I have some questions about the certification procedures.
According to the FRM policies, it saids that I have to submit 2 years of work experience within 5 years since I pass the Part2 exam. But recently, I have decided to go to the graduate school.
Let me simplify my time schedule scenario.
2021 / 5 - Passed the part2
2022 / 3 - Start studying at graduate school.
2024 / 2 - Finish the graduate school.
2024 ~ 2025 - Working at the financial institution.(Related to risk management.)
2026 / 2~3 - Submit my 2 years of work experience, and apply for the certification process.
Assuming that this scenario goes well, is there any problem with getting my certification ?
Additional question - I want to know when the 5 years start from. Is it 2021 / 5 that i took the exam? or is it 2021 / 7 that i received a mail that I passed the part2 exam?
I got so many precious advices, and resources when I was preparing for the FRM exam! It would be grateful if I can get some advice from this forum again.
