“I can tell I am getting a solid foundation for the future when the topics I am learning about in my ARM coursework are either directly applicable to what I am working on or related to issues I have seen in past work experience. It’s impossible to gain work experience in a short amount of time; you simply have to put in the time. But with learning the material from ARM’s segmented exams, you can put yourself at an advantage by improving your awareness of key risk concepts and techniques in manageable chunks of time, raising the likelihood you will hit the ground running as soon as you have the chance."
