Risk Management Module

The Risk Management Module (RMM) first started in 2003 to show that the Valuation Profession took risk management seriously and were therefore good candidates for professional indemnity insurance.

Valuers who are members of API are required to complete this compulsory module every three years to ensure that they are up-to-date and have the tools to get their risk management right.

Risk management training is important as it puts a consistent base line under the industry and what is acceptable in terms of quality, standards and risks, and provides a standard to which Valuers should operate as professionals in the business.

All API Certified Practising Valuer (CPV) and Residential Property Valuer (RPV) Members must hold a current RMM Certificate. Certificates expire on 31 December of the third year following completion.

Applicants for Provisional Membership with Residential Property Valuer and Associate Membership with Certified Practising Valuer must complete a RMM as part of the Future Property Professionals Program.  

Please Note:

If you have not done an RMM before you need to complete the Introduction to RMM online module before registering for a workshop.

If you have completed an RMM before, you do not have to complete the Introduction to RMM online module, but we ask that you please read over the Introduction Handbook as a refresher before attending the workshop.  The Introduction Handbook will be sent to you as part of your registration.
