Cambridge, Ontario - Intact Public Entities and Conestoga College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning are pleased to announce the launch of an exclusive new micro-credential called Municipal Risk Management.

The micro-credential is comprised of four online courses that introduce students to the topic of municipal risk and provide education on the cost of risk; risk in municipal leisure infrastructure and public safety; and public infrastructure and asset management.

The more we can educate about risk and mitigation, the better equipped we all are to help prevent claims. The cost of claims is the number one driver of a municipality’s risk profile. As a Managing General Agent, our role isn’t just to provide insurance, but also to help municipalities through advocacy and education to better manage risk and build resilience,” says Larry Ryan, President, Intact Public Entities.

Each of the four micro-credential courses is 21 hours in length and ideal for those new to a municipal role or those looking to expand their knowledge on the topic of municipal risk. Courses run one evening per week fully online (live delivery), allowing students from any municipality across Ontario to participate while also managing full-time work obligations. Municipal employers may wish to consider sponsoring groups of employees to attend the courses together.

“Conestoga delivers micro-credentials that are flexible, innovative, timely, and respond directly to industry need. As one of more than 60 unique micro-credentials offered college-wide, the Municipal Risk Management micro-credential is an excellent example of how the college works directly with industry to tailor learning opportunities to meet the needs of students and the current labour market.” says Conestoga President John Tibbits.

Registration for the micro-credential is now open with the first course beginning September 8. Those interested are invited to visit
