RMS Certified Catastrophe Risk Analyst (CCRA®) Training Program

The RMS Certified Catastrophe Risk Analyst (CCRA®) Training Program is a comprehensive curriculum designed to fast track individuals with an intermediate level of catastrophe modeling experience to an advanced understanding of models and modeled loss estimates. Participants gain a solid foundation of core concepts essential for interpreting and applying loss estimates, and become skilled at the critical assessment of assumptions that affect catastrophe model results.

The CCRA Training Program reflects current trends in catastrophe modeling and the insurance industry, as well as concepts specific to RMS models and software. Although objectives are reinforced using RMS products, CCRA materials are broadly applicable to a range of catastrophe modeling disciplines. 

Individuals who complete the program and pass the CCRA exam earn the prestigious CCRA designation. Since its introduction in 2005, the CCRA designation has gained insurance industry recognition as a symbol of excellence in the field of catastrophe modeling
